SNL’s NATO Summit Assigns Trump To ‘Loser’s Table’ In Hilarious Cold Open

On Saturday night, SNL’s cold open satirized President Trump’s relationship with NATO leaders just days after a viral video caught Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gossiping and mocking Trump at the NATO summit last week.

The skit opened by summarizing the leaders’ exchange, before noting that the audience “should have seen what happened in the NATO cafeteria” during the summit. Jimmy Fallon, as Trudeau, and Paul Rudd, as Macron, then enter the cafeteria with loud guitar music playing in the background.

“Look, it’s Trudeau and Macron, they’re so cool,” a Denmark delegate says.

James Corden, playing Johnson, follows Trudeau and Macron into the cafeteria and joins their three-person crew at one of the lunch tables. Shortly after, Alec Baldwin, as Trump, appears carrying a lunch tray with a few hamburgers placed on it.

“Quiet, it’s Trump. Did you see him speak for 45 minutes the other day?” Rudd’s Macron asked, referencing Trump’s remarks at the NATO summit while sitting alongside Macron. “It was just supposed to be for a photo.

“Saturday Night Live” satirized President Trump’s relationship with NATO leaders just days after video caught French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson apparently gossiping about and mocking the U.S. president.

“Well, if I looked like him, I’d try to distract the photographer, too,” Fallon’s Trudeau jokes, prompting Corden’s Johnson to quip, “he’s no good looking like us three.”

After Baldwin’s Trump asks to sit at their table, both Trudeau and Macron quickly reject his requests, claiming that someone else is planning to sit there.

“We’d love to see you talk and chew at the same time, but we promised this seat to a friend,” Rudd’s Macron said.

The three leaders go on to praise the physical appearance of Baldwin’s Trump until he leaves. Afterward, they then begin gossiping about him again, with Fallon’s Trudeau calling Trump a “mess.”

“He’s, like, dumber than Boris,” Fallon’s Trudeau said.

The skit later features Trump realizing that he’s been relegated to the “losers table,” with Baldwin joking, “I can’t believe they made me sit with the foreign kid.”

As Trump munches MacDonald’s cheeseburgers at a table with Latvia, he realizes he’s “at the loser’s table.”

At one point in the sketch, Johnson slaps an “Impeach Me” sign on Trump’s back.
