TORONTO — NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” has skewered a recent incident of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau mocking U.S. President Donald Trump in a skit likening it to gossip and bullying in a high school cafeteria.

Saturday’s episode of the satirical show opened with the sketch featuring Jimmy Kimmel as Trudeau, Paul Rudd as French President Emmanuel Macron, James Corden as British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and Alec Baldwin as Trump.

The three world leaders won’t let Trump sit at the cool kids’ table and put a sign on his back saying, “IMPEACH ME!!!”

The Johnson character also makes a joke about Macron’s wife being older, and the Trump character says, “That’s good. I like when it’s mean, but not about me.”

After the incident at the recent NATO summit, in which the three world leaders were captured on video talking about Trump’s long, impromptu press conferences, Trump called Trudeau “two-faced.”

The video also came to the attention of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, who used it in an ad saying the world is laughing at Trump.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Dec. 8, 2019.

  1. I see there is at least one person here that is as delusional as Trump if not more so. As far as Trudeau goes, he’s not too bright, either and there will be some heavy new tariffs coming our way because he just couldn’t resist keeping his pie hole shut once again.

  2. Let me get this right JT says we should never belittle or make fun of people, he also preaches racism should never be tolerated, he also says that when any sexual claims are made we must believe the victim and he also says the world should get rid of dictators. But he does not follow any of these beliefs. When he was accused of groping he claimed it was a misunderstanding, when Castro died he said he had respect for him and he was good to his people he makes fun of and belittles Trump and justifies it, and lastly his blackface episodes, he justifies that by saying it happened yrs ago he was 29 an adult. Right now there are people losing jobs for things they said many yrs ago. HE NEEDS A GOOD SPANKING FROM TRUMP and held responsible,

  3. Are you serious?!! Genocide!! Do you even know the meaning of that word? This comment of yours is sick and doesn’t need debate… No crimes have been proven, you are listening to a democrat/liberal run news media that wants you to believe crimes were committed just like the 2 year Russia hoax that resulted in “no collusion”. Get a grip. And he didn’t say Nazis are “fine people”. I guess I have to explain that too…Trump said there were “fine” people on BOTH sides, (NOT Nazis or BLM, Antifa etc,) they were good people there to support the removal of the statue OR against the removal of the statue. Not convinced? A link is worth a 1,000 words. http://www.tinyurl.com/y36axca8

  4. I agree Ron. This whole event is high school and more about “the media and them” than about Trump. They must be short on news. Intelligent people see through this “laugh at” bullshit, and Trump pointed out that Canada LOST 71,000 jobs, while the US ADDED 227,000 jobs for November 2019. Good comeback!

  5. I’m number 1 critic of Trump…love SNL…that being said, I think it’s a sad day when our PM acts like a silly school boy talking behind Trump’s back…world leaders acting this way?….
    don’t think that engenders much hope.

    • Everyone in the world is laughing at trump. Trudeau doesn’t have a monopoly on that. Him pandering with the apology after makes him a little bitch. You forget he was talking with several other world leaders. It’s not like he wrote something on the bathroom stall.

    • Craig Huckerby no class unlike the 70’s SNL now they were funny u must be a snowflake yourself figures Trudeau will and has destroyed this country and what do people do vote him back in dam fools

    • Frank Cuglietta that’s your opinion that’s fine. Judging people for laughing at satire seems a little stupid to me. If you don’t like the show don’t watch it it’s that simple frank.

    • Craig Huckerby I dont thats fine people watch what they want but if you dont like trump thats fine but he is making America better in jobs and helping the people what does trudeau do for us he gives away money to other countries and don’t care about canadiens.

      • I think you are the one being conned! Have you looked at Trump”s long list of accomplishments? And if the democrats would stop blocking him, so much more could be done… If you read between the lines of Trump’s actions you will see he is for the people, not the elite. Of course he has to please them too. The rich are powerful. Need an example of “for the people?” Trump sided with 3 soldiers who made split decisions on the battlefield and pardoned them sparing them from life in prison. He didn’t side with the big wigs on Capital Hill… And I could say tons about how he is anti-war but you should be able to figure that out.. listen to conservative news for a change! I hope you get on the Trump Train soon, seats are filling up fast!

    • Craig Huckerby I guess you dont see the big pic what has the democrats done for their states like LA or Newyork every place the democrats run are slums you think they work for the people you are wrong have a good day am done with this .

    • Craig Huckerby I like people who help people so far the demo’s dont we all need to work together and they always stop trump from doing so. I dont like some of the stuff he does but you have to see the outcome of what he does for the american people.

    • Frank Cuglietta you’re literally defending a fascist engaging in actual genocide. You’re literally defending a man guilty of a crime for which men have been executed (by the USA, in accordance with international law).

      You’re literally defending a man who calls Nazis “fine people”, and who steals from veterans.

      Everything I’ve said is clear public record. Everything.

      • As far as “stealing from veterans” goes, Trudeau is very guilty of that.
        He withheld $375,000,000 of spending intended for veterans and then allowed Veterans Affairs Canada to use money from the veteran budget to provide free treatment for a serial killer who was bothered by court proceedings.
        Meanwhile veterans aren’t getting the help we need.

      • Hmmm, My first post didn’t post for some reason. Trying again…

    • Frank Cuglietta He might be doing great for “haves”…for the “have nots” ? …not so much.The 1%’ers and those who can afford to have 401Ks love him. But all they care about is $$$.

      • Have you looked at Trump’s tax reform bill to see how it helps the average person? Probably not.. Here is a peek: 1) Increased the standard tax deduction so more of all Americans’ money is in their pocket, 2) Expansion in the child tax credit to almost double. Do you even acknowledge the fact that corporate tax cuts actually in most cases help corporations start up, expand and also come back from out of country? Has it occurred to you that 6 million jobs have been created in the last 3 years, so that helps people get off food stamps and get employed? Millions now off food stamps. Lowest unemployment rate in decades. If you want a job you can now get a job! Do you even know about the “opportunities zones” initiative for urban communities?? Look it up… So how is this all for the 1% again?…

    • They aren’t currently frigging committing treason. And if they are, I would like to see them in jail.

      It’s not a case of “What about..” rather “he’s obviously doing this right now. Start with him.”

      Fantastic that your argument is the others are supposedly bad, so Adolph Trump gets a pass. How morally corrupt are you?

    • Bryan Schmidt they all are crooks I dont like trump ethier but he helps his people not like trudeau and trump is no hitler what hell is wrong with you to compare trump to hitler did he send millions to death camps and u are german no

      • Trump hasn’t destroyed farmers. Short term pain, long term gain!! He is helping farmers while the trade deal is in progress.. The pay off will be worth the struggle, farmers know that. I believe China is waiting to see if Trump gets re-elected before making a trade deal. Why make a trade deal before? Because if he doesn’t get re-elected (unlikely), there is no reason for China to make the trade deal. Put the blame where it largely belongs: on massive farming companies that are making the little guy almost impossible to compete…

    • like I said they are all crooks no matter what party you are I know your a vet and thats terrible what trump did but trudeau said he had no money for vets look at the canadien army its a disgrace .Trudeau will not give the army proper equipment .

      • Trump didn’t steal money from vets! He had a news conference and listed where each and every dollar went, named the veteran organizations that the money went to one by one. It took a while to vet each and every one of these organizations, big and small, one by one, and after confident that these organizations were all honourable, the cheques were written and delivered…the news conference is on youtube. Sad that news media such as CNN jumps on the bandwagon without knowing the facts first. Not uncommon these days. So many people actually STILL think Trump stole money from vets!! Obviously they didn’t hear the news briefing. Well I guess the liberal media served its purpose by jumping and accusing before investigating. Sadly there is a unscrupulous method to their madness… any reputable news media should verify stories before airing/writing.

    • If your argument starts with a “but what about them” statement, it’s not an argument, it’s a justification. Also, if your posts are any glimpse into your mind…dear God.

      • Why not start it with “but what about them” For 4 yrs JT has been answering any tough questions with “what about Stephen Harper”

  6. SNL pretty much far left, especially Baldwin, he would fit in well with CNN etc. The USA President stood up to the Canadian PM, nothing wrong with that I think.

  7. Respectfully disagree. SNL skewered Trump not Trudeau, Macron, and Boris the Menace. Trump’s latest stupid utterance was attacking Democrats for supporting women giving birth in their 9th month of pregnancy.

    • You mean he attacked democrats for supporting aborting a full term baby in the 9th month!!! I’d attack democrats for that too! What channel news distorted that? Liberal obviously…
