Saturday Night Live's "Putin" nails it

Even if you're not a fan of NBC's "Saturday Night Live," it's satirical comedy show, you might want to watch what they're doing now with the Trump impression, played by Alec Baldwin.   It's very good -- and pretty close to getting the impersonation just right.

But actor Beck Bennett went him even one better on Jan. 21st with his bare-chested impression of Vladimir Putin -- of course focusing on his relationship with Trump.  Here's a sample:

Putin speaking to the American people:  "You are worried that your country is in the hands of this unpredictable man.   But don't worry.   It's not. . . .   Relax.   I've got this."

Reassuring us that he'd take good care of America:   "It's the most expensive thing we've ever bought. . . .  It's going to be a long four years for many of you, but remember, we're in this together."

If only it were just funny . . . and not so true.
