He's back, people! Donald Trump returned to Saturday Night Live (SNL) this weekend for the first time in a year, with new cast member James Austin Johnson taking on the role of the former American president.

Cecily Strong, playing Fox News personality Jeanine Pirro, then asked him, "How do you keep that all in your brain?"
Johnson's version of Trump answered, "I had my ears sealed so nothing comes in or out."
The sketch appeared to go down pretty well with SNL viewers, with many taking to social media to praise the accuracy of Johnson's performance.
One person tweeted, "He's got that impression down! Voice, cadence, gestures, and look."
Another added, "I thought they dubbed him in it was so good."
Somebody else said, "Holy moly. This impression is incredible!!" In fact, some suggested the character was so accurate that they were getting "flashbacks" from Trump's time in the White House.
Somebody else agreed too, writing, "I actually had to stop watching. Too real!"
