I am a big fan of Alec Baldwin. And no matter what political party you follow, you have to admit that his performance and impersonation of Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live is spot on. It makes me giggle every time I watch him.
Well, a new report has surfaced that says that Alec will soon be giving up the role of Donald Trump. He tells Extra host Mario Lopez, "The maliciousness of this White House has people very 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."
I can understand his points on this. It is a trying time for every American in the political realm. But Saturday Night Live has always been the show that can make you laugh about any old topic, Republican or Democratic, for many years. I know the Baldwin's personally, and am an advocate for the Carol M. Baldwin foundation, and I was just sad to see this today. Here's to hoping that we'll still see some great performances from Alec on the show in the future.
