“Saturday Night Live” mocked the mockers.

An all-star cast poked fun at the European leaders caught on a hot mic belittling President Trump — painting them as childish students wanting to be in the cool kids’ clique in the school cafeteria.

The latest cold open started with Jimmy Fallon as Canadian President Justin Trudeau alongside Paul Rudd as French President Emmanuel Macron, with a gushing female delegate calling them “so cool.”


James Corden, with a wig of unruly blond hair, then walked out to join them as British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, with Fallon’s Trudeau calling him “so cringe.”

The trio soon quietened down when Alec Baldwin walked out in his now-famous role as the president, with them mocking his lengthy NATO speech which was supposed to be just a photo op, the subject of their real-leaders hot mic moment.

“Well, if I looked like him, I’d try to distract the photographer, too,” Fallon’s Trudeau quipped, with Corden’s BoJo getting awkward glances as he added, “He’s not good looking like us three!”

When Baldwin’s Trump, his tray overflowing with burgers, finally asks to sit with them, Rudd’s Macron replied, “We’d love to see you talk and chew at the same time, but we promised this seat to a friend.”

Trump stressed that he was “Boris’s friend” — referring to the close ties between the UK and US — with his ally instead looking away and mumbling, “Don’t make this harder than it already is, old bean. I’m hanging out with these guys now.”

“He’s, like, dumber than Boris,” Fallon’s Trudeau said of Trump, with BoJo laughing as he agreed.

Trump was made to sit with Latvia, complaining, “I can’t believe they made me sit with the foreign kid,” while the trio invited German Chancellor Angela Merkel, played by Kate McKinnon, to take his place at the table.

“Donald, I heard someone likes you, too,” Fallon’s Trudeau told him. “Putin!”

The bullying ended with them sticking an “IMPEACH ME!!!” sign on the president’s back, and Trudeau slapping Trump’s hand into his face after tricking him by saying, “I heard you can’t get impeached if your hand is bigger than your face.”

Cecily Strong then came out as First Lady Melania Trump complaining about bullying — and turning it into an add for Peloton.

“Are you scared woman, tramped in a mansion? Why not imagine biking away from it all,” she said, joking about the company’s ad that has gone viral over sexism complaints.
