Alec Baldwin To Stop Trump Impression Due To White House ‘Maliciousness’
Alec Baldwin said he won’t be impersonating Donald Trump much longer because the “maliciousness of this White House has people worried.”
The “30 Rock” actor started playing Trump on “Saturday Night Live” toward the end of the presidential election. Baldwin, like many other Hollywood stars, is still languishing from the result of election and has continued playing the president, but said that will end soon.
“The maliciousness of this White House has people worried, which is why I’m not going to do it much longer, the impersonation, I don’t know how much more people can take it,” Baldwin told “Extra’s” Marion Lopez.
Baldwin also noted the president’s attitude as a reason to call it quits, calling him “bitter, and angry,” adding that he “overwhelmingly lacks any sportsmanship.”
The 58-year-old actor also commented on the rumors that he might fill in for Trump at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which the president has announced he will not be attending.
“I don’t think it’s going to happen,” Baldwin said. “I honestly don’t think they want that. I think that for their prestige and their integrity . . . I think a lot of people are thinking that 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.”
“If they wanted me to do it, I would probably do it,” Baldwin added. “I think they may have a whole other idea.”
