"It's pronounced Jina."

Alec Baldwin stepped into the role of Donald Trump on last night's season premiere of Saturday Night Live, poking fun at the candidate's pronounciation of China, as well as his sniffing, complaints over a bad microphone and talk of his great temperment during last week's presidential debate. 

Kate McKinnon reprised her role as Hillary Clinton, with an exaggerated smile, a shoulder wiggle, and a suspiciously prepared-sounding reference to "trumped-up trickle down economics" that McKinnon's Clinton claimed came “right off the stiff red cuff.”

The premiere was hosted by Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie, who appeared in a sketch that was centered around a sinkhole opening up in Tampa—though the local TV reporters seem to think the bigger story is the mixed-attractiveness couple who witnessed it, played by Robbie and SNL newcomer Mikey Day

You can watch that sketch below.
