BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Sketch comedy show “Saturday Night Live” premieres tonight and is due to feature more of its popular satire on politics — with focus on the recent debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
A new video posted on social media features Emmy award-winning comedienne Kate McKinnon as Clinton, and show regular Alec Baldwin as Trump.

Trump had been played by both former cast member Darrel Hammond and Taran Killam in the past, but both Killam as well as Jay Pharaoh exited the show since last season.
McKinnon has played Clinton in past seasons, as well as former cast member Amy Poehler, especially in sketches with Tina Fey as Sarah Palin during the 2008 election.
Actress and model Margot Robbie will be hosting Saturday night’s show, with musical guest The Weeknd.
The show premieres at 11:30 p.m. this evening.
