Last night's "Saturday Night Live" took the president's "SEE YOU IN COURT" tweet and put the promise just where it belongs: on "The People's Court."

Knowing that Trump usually tunes in to watch "SNL" each week, using some airtime to explain to a "TV president" how checks and balances really work is actually a smart, gutsy move.


The sketch pitted Baldwin's Trump against the three Ninth Circuit judges (played by Kyle Mooney, Vanessa Bayer, and Pete Davidson) who refused to reinstate the Muslim travel ban on Trump's familiar home turf of reality TV shows. The president was there to request "broad, unchecked power" and was mad the judges were "mean to him."

"You know, earlier a woman asked me to award her joint custody of a snake, and she had more of a case than you," Cecily Strong's Judge Marilyn Milian told him.

Watch the sketch below:

For the first time in its 56-year history, Sports Illustrated will feature a transgender model on its glossy cover. 23-year-old Brazilian model Valentina Sampaio will appear in the July issue, which hits stands early next week. Sampaio wrote on Instagram that she was "excited and honored" to be part of such an iconic issue, adding: "The team at SI has created yet another groundbreaking issue by bringing together a diverse set of multitalented, beautiful women in a creative and dignified way."

A native of Fortaleza, a city in northeastern Brazil, Sampaio has been making history in the fashion world in recent years. She was already the first trans model to make the 2017 cover of Vogue Paris. Scouted while she was a young teen, she quickly made her way onto key runways in her home country. She managed to make an impression in a short time— launching her career at 18 years old—as L'Oréal Paris's first trans model. She hit another milestone last year, when she was the face of Victoria's Secret campaign, breaking barriers as the first trans woman working with the brand.
