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.
Yesterday, Alec Trump, I mean Donald Baldwin, I mean Alec Baldwin was back as Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live and they combined all of his scandals of the week into one 8 minute cold open. The rumors he paid people to applaud and cheer for him at his press conference, the folders filled with blank pages, the uncalled for dissing of the great American John Lewis, Golden Showers and many more fake news items that are actually real. It was so right on, I don’t know if it is real or a parody. What do you think?
Alec Baldwin must love playing Donald Trump so much on Saturday Night Live because The New York Times reports he is only getting paid $1,400 each time he appears on the show as the President Elect. That is a small amount for the actor and even less for the “Billionaire”.
And talking about little, not Trump’s hands or thing that coincides with that, the paper says it only takes him 7 minutes to transform into the character. They put “a dusting of Clinique Stay-Matte powder in honey” on his face making sure to cover his eyes and the whip cream on top is the wig that is specially made for him. The dirty feeling afterwards, well that lasts for a lifetime. All for $1,400 a week. Hey we do worse for less.
Shortly after Saturday Night Live aired another accurate bit about Donald Trump, the President Elect Tweeted about it. He said, “Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse. Sad.”
Alec Baldwin, who has been doing a better job at playing him than the real thing, had something to say about that. He made a deal with him, “..@realDonaldTrump Release your tax returns and I’ll stop. Ha.”
When Saturday Night Live hired Alex Baldwin to play Donald Trump, you knew it was going to be huge. But then on Friday, you knew he was going to take it to all new levels of excellence and that is exactly what it was yesterday!
If Baldwin doesn’t win an Emmy for this portrayal, then the Emmy voters are more out of touch than the Oscars are with diversity.
