(NEW YORK) -- Saturday Night Live ended its season last weekend on a musical note, with Alec Baldwin's President Donald Trump and his crew delivering a parody of Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now."

Baldwin introduced the musical number by announcing, “I’m very excited about summer, getting in those things that I never have time for -- golf, visiting friends in prison, and enjoying all the fantastic new tariffs.”

“It’s been an incredible year for our economy, it’s on fire,” he continued. “I’m on cruise control for a second term and there’s nothing the Democrats in Congress can do about it.”

The faux president opens the song with “Tonight, I’m gonna have myself a real good time."

He's then joined by SNL regulars Cecily Strong as first lady Melania Trump, Beck Bennett as Vice President Mike Pence, and Aidy Bryant as White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, all of whom chime in with “Don’t stop him now.”

In a callback to Kanye West's famous SNL meltdown that ended the season opener, cast member Chris Redd, wearing a red MAGA hat, stepped in as the rapper.

Trump's sons, Don Jr. and Eric -- played respectively by Mikey Day and Alex Moffat -- completed the celebration, along with Kate McKinnon as Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.

Robert De Niro's Robert Mueller briefly steps in with a "very important" massage for the American people, only to be abruptly cut off by Baldwin's Trump, who yells, "No collusion!" 

In a nod to Sunday's Game of Thrones finale, Baldwin closes the sketch with “Tune in next season to see who lives and who dies.”

Paul Rudd hosted the show's season 44 finale, his fourth time as guest host, with musical guest DJ Khaled.
