Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump returns, Scarlett Johansson spoofs Ivanka on “SNL”

first_imgNBC/Will Heath(NEW YORK) — Alec Baldwin returned to Saturday Night Live this weekend to reprise his role as President Donald Trump, kicking off the show with a cold open inspired by the sci-fi film Independence Day.At a military base about to be invaded by aliens, Baldwin’s Trump is debriefed by an officer, played by cast member Kenan Thompson.The cold open implies that Trump relies on questionable sources for his facts.“Actually, I heard the aliens are already here,” Baldwin’s Trump says. “They’ve been hiding in this country for hundreds of years. It’s a fact. They are shape-shifters.”Thompson’s character asks, “Where are you getting this information?”“From a very reputable source: Infowars,” says Baldwin’s Trump. “It’s a radio show hosted by Alex Jones. You know he’s legit because he’s always taking off his shirt, OK?”Then, in an attempt to imply that the president mispronounces words, Baldwin’s Trump stumbles over the words “hereby” and “demand,” saying, “That is why I hair-by demand. Sorry. I here-be be-dammed. Sorry. I Gigi Hadid. Sorry. We launch an investigation into these … aliens right now.”Later in the show, guest host Scarlett Johansson played first daughter Ivanka Trump, spoofing a commercial for Ivanka’s fictitious perfume, “Complicit.”“A feminist. An advocate. A champion for women,” says the voiceover. The camera then pans to a trio of other women, and the voiceover says, “but how?” It’s an apparent attempt to question the first daughter’s values.And during “Weekend Update,” cast member Kate McKinnon reprised her role as Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and the show’s Alex Moffat played Minnesota senator — and former SNL cast member — Al Franken.

Australian men, women football players close gender pay gap

first_imgTaal Volcano’s lava fountain weakens, but Phivolcs says it’s not sign of slowing down Under the agreement, players are entitled to 40% of prize money on qualifying for a FIFA World Cup, representing an increase from 30%. That share of prize money increases to 50% if they progress to the knockout stage of the competition.“The new agreement reflects football’s determination to address issues of gender equity in all facets of the game and build a sustainable financial model that rewards players as national team revenues increase,” a joint statement said. “Significantly for the Matildas, a new three-tiered centralized contract system will see Australia’s finest women’s footballers provided with increased annual remuneration with the tier 1 players earning the same amount as the top Socceroos.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSAndray Blatche has high praise for teammate Kai SottoSPORTSBig differenceSPORTSAlmazan status stays uncertain ahead of Game 4The agreement still doesn’t reflect equal remuneration: the Socceroos’ prize money is exponentially greater than the Matildas at the World Cup.At the 2018 men’s World Cup in Russia, the Socceroos earned $8 million in prize money for exiting in the group stage without winning a game.
