“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.
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.”
“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.
“He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top. You just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor,” Trudeau said. Macron could be seen gesturing with his hands and responding, though it is unclear what he said.
Trump responded to the viral clip by calling Trudeau “two-faced.” Trudeau has since stressed that he has a “productive and positive relationship” with the U.S. president.
