To paraphrase Richard Nixon, you won’t have Alec Baldwin’s President to kick around for much longer.
In a conversation with Extra’s Mario Lopez, the 30 Rock actor and Match Game host admitted that he was disappointed with the behavior of the current President of the United States, going on to say that the atmosphere he’s creating might be enough to drive Baldwin from parodying him on NBC’s Saturday Night Live.
“His policies aside, which you can hate, I thought he would have just relaxed,” Baldwin said, apparently unaware of all that weekend golf time President Trump has been fitting in to his schedule. “The maliciousness of this White House has people worried,” he went on. “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.”
He also batted down speculation that his version of Donald Trump will replace the real deal at April’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, saying, “I don’t think they want that… I think a lot of people are thinking if Trump himself doesn’t come and face the music, as it were… I don’t know what kind of program they’re going to have.” (He did add, however, “If they wanted me to do it, I would probably do it.”)
If we’re really running down the clock on Baldwin’s Trump, that just makes it all the more important to get Rosie O'Donnell’s Steve Bannon on Saturday Night Live sooner rather than later.
