Alec Baldwin parodies Donald Trump's sexual assault comments in the best possible way.

Making fun of Donald Trump is kind of like shooting fish in a barrel at this point, but there’s just something so perfect about the way in which Alec Baldwin and the Saturday Night Live team does it.

Returning to his orange-faced mogul character after yet another damning audio leak over the weekend, Baldwin took on Donald Trump’s now scrambling position as he tries to redeem his legitimacy as a presidential candidate.

The 2005 leaked tape - in which Trump can be heard saying that when you're a star you can "do whatever you want" to women, like "grab them by the p*ssy"  - has cast an even dark shadow over Trump's campaign in the days that followed, with many Republicans dropping support and publicly condemning him.

But morphing back into "The Donald" just one week after his debut appearance, Baldwin delivered yet another eye-watering performance.

Puckering incessantly and delivering apologies (pronounced apple-oh-gees) to those he had offended, Baldwin claimed:

“Are you not entertained?” Baldwin asked the comedian playing a news anchor, Cecily Strong.“What I am doing is apple-a-gising to all the people who were offended by my statements. But more importantly, to the people who were turned on by them. I hear it’s really 50/50,” he said before asking women to give him another chance.

“What I am doing is apple-a-gising to all the people who were offended by my statements. But more importantly, to the people who were turned on by them. I hear it’s really 50/50,” he said before asking women to give him another chance.

“Listen, women, if you give me a chance, I can do a whole lot more than just grab it,” Baldwin continued, explaining the comments were made, “way back in 2005. It was 11 years ago, back when I was just a young childish 59-year-old man.”

The skit then "live crossed" to Hillary Clinton's camp to show a room full of people partying.

"It's a very sad day for all women, minus one," comedian Kate McKinnon (who plays Clinton) said before winking.

Best of all? The roast came just a day before the next presidential debate.
