I don’t know about you, but one of the things getting me through this Presidency is Alec Baldwin playing 45 on Saturday Night Live. Well, looks like we are about to lose our temporary Prozac because Baldwin dropped some sad news to Extra today.
He told them, “Trump just overwhelmingly lacks any sportsmanship, he remains, bitter, and angry, and you just want to look at him and go, ‘You won!’” The he added, “His policies aside, which you can hate, I thought he would have just relaxed. The maliciousness of this White House has people worried… that’s why I’m not going to do it much longer, the impersonation, I don’t know how much more people can take it.”
No one else can play him. We need him. It is his duty to the Country to continue playing 45. Can someone mandate it? We know the President is not going to do it but someone else must insist he do it. It is hard enough getting through this week because I didn’t get my fix over the weekend. I need my fix and he needs to keep providing it. If not for himself, but all the people who are stuck with 45 that didn’t vote for him. And there are more of us who did not than did.
Back when 45 declared that Mexico was going to pay for the wall between them and the US and they said they weren’t, things seemed strained between the neighboring countries. Conan O’Brien decided to take matters into his own hand to mend relations between us and them by taking his TBS talk show down to Mexico City. Tonight at 10p, we see what happens in Conan Without Borders: Made in Mexico.
The show opens up with him going to the Border Fence and trying to get into the country. They were obviously smart and didn’t want to let him in. He sneaks past them and now it is time for him to entertain the Mexican studio audience with some jokes in Spanish. He didn’t want them to get lost in translation like it does here in America. Sorry, Conan I had to. They laughed as hard as you will.
Anyways, next he shows them what happens when he asks people on the streets of Mexico if they will pay for the wall. Their answers are what you would expect, no but with explanations why. They love America and don’t want the divide that a small minority of Americans want.
In fact, this sentiment will be heard loud and clear when Rogue One’s Diego Luna talks to Conan about that topic and so much more during their interview. We will also see Conan join a Mexican telenovela, dance and play with a street band, learn how wrestle with the Lucha Libre and interview former Mexican President Vicente Fox.
He actually did a whole lot more like go to a Quinceañera, but there was only so much he could fit into the one hour special. A special that will be special to both sides of the border. One that needs to be watched by all, so we can tell 45, “Mr President, Don’t build that wall!”
When 45 caused a rift between America and Mexico, Conan O’Brien announced he was going to go down to mend relations between the neighboring countries by doing a whole episode from there to air on March 1st.
This week, he went down Mexico City and got to the heart of the matter. He asked the people on the street if the would pay for the wall since 45 said that they would. How did they react? They ain’t gonna pay for no stinking wall. As if anyone but the people inside the White House thought they would.
You know what, I ain’t paying for that stinking wall either, but I will watch Conan’s TBS special episode. I think all you Gringos should too or in 45’s case Orango.
Thankfully the Mexicans that he spoke to have a sense of humor because this bit could have turned out completely differently of they did not.
BTW does anyone know if Immigration let Conan back into the US? I could totally see ICE standing there waiting for him at the gate to send him immediately back to Mexico for doing this special. Couldn’t you?
When it comes to Conan, moochas gracias for trying to bring peace again to America and Mexico. And where is my Tequila?
Alec Baldwin is so good at playing 45. How good? El Nacional, a Dominican Republican newspaper, accidentally posted a photo of the actor for the President instead of the President himself. Ouch! Granted, I would rather have the guy in the photo as POTUS than the guy who is currently in the office.
I don’t knowabout you, but I can’t wait to see what Baldwin does with him tonight when he hosts Saturday Night Live for a record breaking 17th time.
In between destroying American and whining about not being popular, 45 found time to talk about the ratings for The New Celebrity Apprentice. He told people at the National Prayer Breakfast today, “When I ran for president, I had to leave the show. That’s when I knew for sure I was doing it. And they hired a big, big movie star, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to take pace my place, and we know how that turned out.” Then he added, “The ratings went right down the tubes. It’s been a total disaster. And Mark will never, ever bet against Trump again, and I want to just pray for Arnold, if we can, for those ratings, okay?”
Well the former Governor of California, who had my vote and did a great job, responded to him on Twitter. Arnuld said, “Hey Donald, I have a great idea. Why don’t we switch jobs? You take over TV, because you’re such an expert in ratings, and I take over your job, and then people can finally sleep comfortably again.”
I am OK with them to doing a Freaky Friday 7 days a week. The Terminator knows how to run the government and 45 knows how to do TV.
Oh and if 45 would’ve hosted Celeb App this go around, the ratings would’ve been the same with him as they are with Arnold or even lower. All shows including the top ones have had major declines since the reality show last aired. But, hey he knows ratings.
