This country just can’t get enough Donald Trump. Lucky for us, we have Alec Baldwin.

Baldwin confirmed that he will be returning to Saturday Night Live this season with his Donald Trump impression on Friday’s episode of the podcast Origin. There’s no shortage of material to work with on the Trump front, that’s for sure.

Baldwin and SNL creator Lorne Michaels both noted on the podcast that the Trump impression is still connecting with the audience, although Baldwin said it’s fallen off a bit since he first debuted the impression in 2016. He said part of that negative reception stems from Trump supporters, but some people just hate the president too much.

“I think people are really really… they’re scared. They’re scared,” Baldwin said on the podcast. “God knows people hate Trump. They hate him. They hate him like he’s Mussolini or Franco. They hate him. I’m not gonna say Hitler, cause Hitler’s a separate category by himself, but they hate him like he’s a fucking dictator, and they want him gone.”

But the show must go on, as they say, and Trump is still a very large public figure that a lot of people are focused on, so of course Saturday Night Live is going to continue making fun of Trump.

Season 44 of Saturday Night Live premieres on Sept. 29. The first episode will be hosted by Adam Driver with musical guest Kanye West.
