So what happened?
During SNL's cold open sketch about the presidential town hall debate, Alec Baldwin-as-Trump is asked about whether he likes kids and says, “I love the kids, okay? I love them so much I marry them.”
After it's pointed out that Trump has said Bill Clinton's accusers should be believed, Baldwin-as-Trump says of his own accusers: “They need to shut the hell up.”
And after stalking Clinton repeatedly during last week's town hall debate — something Trump denies he actually did — Baldwin-as-Trump is asked by a black man whether he can be a “devoted president to all the people.” He responds by calling the man “Denzel” and launches into an answer about violence in the inner cities.
Then he uses it as a segue to call for putting Hillary Clinton in jail: “She's committed so many crimes, she's basically a black.”
That's all pretty in-keeping with Baldwin's previous turns as Trump. In truth, it's not clear what about this week was worse than before.

Or maybe it's just Trump's new narrative.
