Donald Trump continues to provide "Saturday Night Live" with fodder.

Alec Baldwin reprised his role as Donald Trump last night, while "SNL" regular Kate McKinnon returned as Hillary Clinton.

The show began with a spoof of last week's vice presidential debate, which is then interrupted by a breaking news update that makes a nod to the leaked audio between Trump and former "Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush, during which he makes lewd comments about women.

"Looks like Donald Trump finally got what he wanted -- a working microphone," says "SNL" cast member Cecily Strong, who plays CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin.

"I wish I was that hurricane tearing through hot Miami [expletive]," says Baldwin's Trump, unaware that the microphone is on. "I would just destroy it."

Trump doppelganger Baldwin then says, "I mean what normal, red-blooded American doesn't want to impress Billy Bush. You have to admit it's kind of funny the only Bush in this election that matters is Billy."

The sketch then turns to McKinnon's Clinton, who is dancing and popping champagne at her campaign headquarters, while the Kool and the Gang song "Celebration" plays.

"I'm sorry, Brooke, I didn't see you," says the fictional Clinton. "We were so busy preparing for the debate tomorrow."

Asked if Trump should drop out of the race, Clinton responds, "No! No! No! Give him a shot!"

Later on in the show, Saturday Night Live alumni Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon returned during the 'Weekend Update' segment as undecided voters from Clifton Heights, Delaware County named Denise McDonough and Doreen Troilo.

"Pundits are speculating that this election could be decided by the female voters of suburban Philadelphia," 'Update' host Colin Jost says.

Fey, an Upper Darby native, and Fallon wearing Villanova and Philadelphia Eagles gear bring Jost some hoagies.

Showing their knowledge of the Philadelphia area, the duo mentions the Mummers Parade and the Mann Music Center (Mann Center for the Performing Arts).

The full video of the sketch is available on YouTube.

Fey was in Philadelphia just the day before when Temple University presented the comedian with its annual Lew Klein Excellence in Media Award.

She accepted the award and said her success can be traced to three things: her family, television, and Philadelphia.

"I sent my pictures to dear old Captain Noah and I seethed with jealousy watching the Al Alberts Showcase," Fey said.

Fey also recalled dressing as Sally Starr for Halloween.

Meanwhile, both candidates have recently visited Delaware County on their campaign trail to win over the undecided and gain those important votes.

Last week, Clinton held a town hall meeting in Haverford Township with her daughter Chelsea and actor and University of Pennsylvania alumna Elizabeth Banks.

The town hall meeting focused on Clinton's plan for families and children.

A couple weeks ago, Trump held a rally in Aston.

The Republican presidential nominee talked jobs, immigration reform and public safety.
