Alec Baldwin Totally Shreds Trump

Alec Baldwin
Alec Baldwin responds to Trump’s insulting Friday morning tweet about his impressions of the current occupant of the White House.

Alec Baldwin’s acting career has spanned the better part of nearly four decades so far, but he is best known these days for his leading role in the resistance movement, mocking Trump on the ever popular Saturday Night Live cold opens.

As Liberals Unite contributor Whatever Jones wrote late last year: “Not only is his portrayal of the orange menace hilarious, it frustrates the living sh*t out of Trump and that, in and of itself, is a beautiful thing.”

Closing out what many might describe as his work week since assuming office, Trump tossed a Twitter-tantrum this morning in – yet another – obvious attempt to change the conversation.

He targeted Baldwin in one of those tweets, and making matters worse – and possibly all the more hilarious – The Independent and others have pointed out that Trump seems to have trouble with spelling. [Trump’s original tweet was quickly replaced. It called Baldwin “Alex” instead of “Alec” and misspelled “dying” – posting it as “dieing.”]

Trump has posted a furious, rambling and misspelt tweet about Alec Baldwin, the actor famous for impersonating him on Saturday Night Live.

In an early morning post that rambled on multiple tangents, misspelled the word “dying.”

“Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch. Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!” he tweeted.

Baldwin was quick to hit back with a short, but cutting set of tweets.

He began, tweeting that: he fully intends to continue playing Trump on “Saturday Night Live” until he is chased out of office.

“Agony though it may be, I’d like to hang in there for the impeachment hearings, the resignation speech, the farewell helicopter ride to Mara-A-Lago,” he tweeted, using his foundation’s Twitter account and adding: “You know. The Good Stuff. That we’ve all been waiting for.”

Continuing, he tweeted: “Looking forward to the Trump Presidential Library. A putting green. Recipes for chocolate cake. A live Twitter feed for visitors to post on. A little black book w the phone numbers of porn stars. You’re in and out in five minutes. Just like…”

Continuing the mockery, he tweeted: “And Mr President… please ask your wife to stop calling me for SNL tickets. (Hey, Melania…we’ve got Charles Barkley this Saturday!)”

And he addressed Trump’s allegations about his career in his final tweet: “Signing off for now. On my way to shoot MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN and grateful to be working w Edward Norton, Cherry Jones, Willem Dafoe, Bruce Willis, Bobby Canavale, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael K Williams. If this is mediocrity, give me more.”

It would appear that, aside from trying to distract the world from his wretched week, Trump may have been responding to an interview with Baldwin published yesterday by The Hollywood Reporter.

Asked how much longer he might continue playing Trump, Baldwin gave the following response:

Every time I do it now, it’s like agony. Agony. I can’t. If things don’t go in the right direction for the midterms. … I could go out on the street, stand on any corner and tap 10 people on the shoulder. And all 10 of them, in all likelihood, would be more qualified — ethically, morally, intellectually and spiritually — than Trump. I’ll vote for Mitt Romney. I don’t care. Anybody over this guy. It doesn’t matter. We have to get rid of him. And that’s another project I’m working on. I was the keynote speaker at the Democratic Dinner in Iowa, and I’m gonna go do a couple more of those this year. My wife and I agreed that we’re gonna give it everything we have. And then if, God forbid, he wins again in 2020, I’m wondering can I host a game show in Spain.
