Alec Baldwin's Surprising Confession About Playing President Trump on 'SNL'

Alec Baldwin’s Surprising Confession About Playing President Trump on ‘SNL'

In a skit mocking President Donald Trump's disregard for judicial titles, Alec Baldwin reprised his role as Trump on Saturday night Live last night.

El Nacional in the Dominican Republic published a photo of Baldwin, captioned as the president, alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The newspaper has admitted the mistake, on page 19, went unnoticed by its staff.

"El Nacional apologizes to its readers and anyone who felt affect by the publication" of the photo, the statement said.

"Actor Alec Baldwin imitates President Trump on the weekly program Saturday Night Live on the National Broadcasting Company (NBC), one of the most important in the United States".

Baldwin's appearance on Saturday Night Live was 17th as guest host.

We know Trump bristles every time Alec Baldwin plays him on SNL- though the president has been curiously silent on the issue the past few weeks.

Last night's episode pitted Trump against the federal judges who upheld a suspension of his immigration order on a reality television show, where the president sued for "justice, bigly", and the three 9th Circuit judges were accused of knowing the Constitution.

Trump has repeatedly shown his disdain toward the show and its concept, calling the show "unwatchable", "totally biased" and "not amusing". (I, for one, welcomed a fart sketch last night.) But it's weird, you can nearly feel the letdown on social media when a sketch isn't political.

Baldwin got some help taking on the Trump administration thanks to the return of Melissa McCarthy as White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

When asked if he swore to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth, Baldwin responded by waving his arms and saying, "I'm good".

"He's my little American Happy Meal". "And let me just say, you are doing too much okay, I want one day without a CNN alert that scares the hell out of me".
