“30 Rock” actress Tina Fey revisited her impression of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin for the most recent episode of “Saturday Night Live,” which featured a skit on the “GOP 2012 Undeclared Candidates Debate.”

Among the debate panelists were Palin, Mitt Romney (played by Jason Sudeikis), and Donald Trump (played by former SNL cast member Darell Hammond).

“Gee wiz,” Romney says during the debate. “I’ve been smiling for the last four years but I haven’t, I haven’t been happy once!”

“It’s just so great to be back on Fox News, a network that both pays me and shows me the questions ahead of time,” the Palin says. “And I just hope that tonight the lamestream media won’t twist my words by repeating them verbatim.”

Reprising his Trump role, Hammond says, “The ratings for tonight’s debate are going to be huge!”

Referring to the end of May 1’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” which was interrupted so President Barack Obama could announce that Osama bin Laden had been killed, Trump said, “Plus at the end we finally killed Osama bin Laden. Osama, boom, you’re fired.”

Initially seeming to comment on the same topic, Palin said, “First, I want to acknowledge that this week we finally vanquished one of the world’s great villains, and I for one am thrilled to say good riddance to Katie Couric…I’m going to be running for president every four years for the rest of my life. It’s my Olympics and I intend to win a whole bunch of silvers.”

“You know there’s a great American movie called ‘Citizen Kane,'” the Trump says at one point in the skit. “It’s about a man who kicks ass and makes a ton of money. I haven’t seen the ending of this movie but I assume it ends with him happy and president. I want to be your Citizen Trump and if you criticize me just remember you’re rubber and I’m gold so whatever you say doesn’t matter because I’m gold and you’re losers.”

Trump then turns to Palin and says, “Except you…Sarah Palin, I like you. If you want to be my vice president all you have to do is sell more chili than NeNe Leakes over the course of a hot summer day in times square.”
