Watch Alec Baldwin Impersonate Donald Trump Impersonating George Washington

Right off the heels of announcing his infamous Trump impersonation will return to Saturday Night Live next season, Alec Baldwin took a swipe at the president in a promo for his celebrity roast next week on spike. But instead of wearing the usual orange mop on his head, Baldwin impersonated Trump impersonating George Washington by donning a powdered wig and recalling his achievements as America's most beloved general and president.

"I grabbed so much freedom from those British losers. When you're the president, they let you do it," Baldwin's caricature said - echoing The Donald's infamous Access Hollywood interview

Baldwin went on to mock the Russia scandal besieging Trump's White House. 

"I won our nation's first election fair and square - complete landslide. Nobody thought I could win all 13 colonies, but I did. The press is saying the French interfered. Okay, that's fake news. I don't know French. I never borrowed money from the French, the only thing I got from the French is my kissing - which, I should mention, is quite impressive."

And the actor even took a swipe at himself. "I created this terrific, beautiful country for everybody - even the haters and the losers like Alec Baldwin," he said.

I've been covering cannabis for nearly five years, and by now I'm all too accustomed to the impersonal cannabis conference at a stuffy, generic hotel or expo hall, brimming with white guys in suits, and generally lacking in the spirit of well, cannabis. (The woes of legalization, I suppose.) So it was a breath of fresh air when I walked into what felt like a giant atrium in downtown LA for a new kind of cannabis conference. Located in what's called the Valentine Grass Room in an industrial area past the hustle and bustle of the DTLA skyscrapers, Microscopes & Machines (M&M) boasted a diverse array of speakers, from doctors and lawyers to chemists and cultivators on the frontlines of the cannabis industry.
