Alec Baldwin returned to portray Donald Trump, joined by Mike Pence (Beck Bennett) in a hilarious cold open that took shots at Senator Bob Corker, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Pence's staged walkout from last weekend's Indianpolis Colts game. Yet Pence isn't "innocent" when it comes to how he treats the community.

As a congressman, Pence controversially supported discredited gay conversion therapy. But Pence's discriminatory behavior doesn't stop there.

One study even discovered children of same-sex couples were happier than their straight-family counterparts.
Pence has a long anti-LGBT history that consists of voting against LGBT rights in Congress, including support for a USA constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage nationwide as well as opposition to the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, hate crimes legislation and "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" repeal. After weeks of protests and business boycotts, Pence eventually revised the law to explicitly prevent discrimination.
Trump's crude joke at the expense of Pence's views was inappropriate for many reasons. He discussed getting rid of "everything Obama did", from health insurance to the Iran deal to vegetables; he repeatedly called Beck Bennett's Mike Pence to ask him to walk out of places like a National Football League game and a Starbucks; he insulted "liddle itty-bitty" Sen.
