since I don't have a tv.. I wasn't sure if that was her.. I googled.. and sure enough. They could have gotten someone who resembles her for all I knew. lol

5. That was a brilliant surprise!

I've seen her enough on the news that I had no doubt - and if Alec Baldwin sends Trump over the edge, I can't imagine his reaction to this! It's clearly a historic SNL moment!

Hasn't Trump already dug himself in deep enough?? Everything is catching up with him - and it couldn't be more well deserved...

14. I think she's only staying for her son

And it sure can't be easy, but there is no way she'd leave him behind. If you remember, she refused to leave New York until he'd finished his school year. I have no doubt she'll do whatever it takes for him.

10. Totally historical and I bet Alec Baldwin

& Star crew could feel it. They kept a good secret.. I wonder if Michael Avenatti knew?

trump.. live by the tabloid die(metaphorically) by the tabloid.

13. I have no doubt that he knew

She's obviously not stupid and I'm guessing she runs everything by him. He's been on one show or another everytime I turn on the TV these days, I think keeping the pressure on is a big part of his strategy.

If you missed it, he even appeared on with Stephen Colbert!

16. That's the reason I started posting these

I know that a lot of DUers don't stay up as late as I do - and some don't have TV - and the humor sure helps me endure the current news, and I figure that these days we all need all the humor we can get!

31. I thought you might be interested since you don't have TV

And Bill Maher's on HBO so I usually post his show on Fridays. Michael Avenatti sure has been making the rounds! And I agree we won't be hearing the last of him, he's already a household name...

I couldn't figure that one out.

Jimmy Fallon as Jared was good. Let's not forget him!
