"Saturday Night Live" took on President Donald Trump once again over the weekend, showing what it would like if an alien invasion went down under his leadership.

Spoiler alert: It doesn't go well.

Alec Baldwin reprised his impression of the commander-in-chief, who is tasked with the unenviable duty of motivating the last remaining cadre of soldiers following a devastating attack on America by extra-terrestrial villains.

Unfortunately for the troops, Baldwin's Trump isn't able to do much more than hit all his usually inane talking points while avoiding the real issues facing America like the fact that California has been vaporized.

"Everyone in California is dead," Kenan Thompson's army commander tells the President, and Trump only has one concern.

"Even Arnold?" Trump asks, referring to his "Celebrity Apprentice" rival Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Trump also made sure to attack presence of aliens just not the evil ones coming from a distant planet. "The aliens are already here," Trump says. "They've been hiding in this country for hundreds of years."

This cold open marked Baldwin's return to "SNL" after taking last week off. Last week, Kate McKinnon took on the role of Attorney General Jefferson Sessions (as Forrest Gump) delivering folksy, down home stories about his ties to Russian officials.

McKinnon donned her old-man makeup to play Sessions once again during this week's Weekend Update where the AG got grilled once again by Senator Al Franken (Alex Moffat).
