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.
For decades Saturday Night Live has been unwatchable, but for some reason things changed this season. Oh yeah, 45 happened. Someone over at the NBC variety show thought that Alec Baldwin would be perfect as the President and they were right. So right.
Then over the last few days, someone else thought that Melissa McCarthy would be perfect as his Press Secretary and they are Mensa brilliant. Who ever would’ve thought that the star of the all-woman version of Ghostbusters would be so believable as the angry lying man? But she is even better at being him than he is at being himself. So much better. And so accurate.
The show found its calling and I am actually picking up the phone when I see their name on Caller ID. I am not alone because their numbers are going up as they take on the jokes in the White House which is seriously the best thing they have done in this millennium.
Aren’t you loving this season?

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.”
