This week's Saturday Night Live turned the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit into the stuff of high school drama, with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (played by Jimmy Fallon), French President Emmanuel Macron (Paul Rudd) and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson (James Corden) sitting pretty at the cool kids' table in the summit cafeteria.

The 8 1/2-minute sketch was set in a cafeteria at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in London, and featured Fallon and Rudd as cool-kid, bullying versions of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron.

Jimmy Fallon and Paul Rudd played Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron.

Corden was spot-on in his portrayal of the disheveled British premier, Boris Johnson.

Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin reprised his role as President Trump, who came up to try and get a seat at a table with the popular people.

The sketch was based on the viral video clip from Tuesday which showed Trudeau, Macron and Johnson at the Buckingham Palace NATO reception appearing to gossip about Trump and the length of his impromptu press conferences.

The gang eventually invites Angela Merkel (Kate McKinnon) to sit with them, and Boris Johnson tags Trump with an "Impeach Me" sign on his back. To which Trump happily replied, "I like when it's mean, but not about me".

This was SNL's first new episode since the Thanksgiving break, with Jennifer Lopez hosting and rapper DaBaby performing.
