Alec Baldwin: ‘Trump Is The Head Writer At SNL’
Alec Baldwin believes that Donald Trump has taken a load off the writers of “Saturday Night Live” because the president generates most of their content for the show these days.
Baldwin has been impersonating Trump throughout the “SNL” season helping the NBC show receive their best ratings in years. Although Trump has frequently criticized the show and Baldwin’s poor attempt at impersonating him, the actor says that the president only has himself to blame.
“Trump himself is responsible for nearly all of the content,” Baldwin said. “Trump is the head writer at ‘SNL.’ Nearly everything, every consonant and every vowel is something that Trump himself has rendered in some way. So I think Trump is even more frustrated because he has only himself to blame for that,” he added.
Even though Baldwin has been doing his best to roast Trump all season, he said he wouldn’t mind sharing the stage with him.
“I think if he came it would be a great show,” Baldwin said in an interview on Wednesday. “I think it would be better for everybody. It’s always fun to defuse some of the tensions and unpleasantness of all this because we are mocking him–by no means with more frequency or more maliciousness, if you will, than other people,” he added.
“We invited him to come when I hosted recently, but he refused to come, which is fine,” Baldwin continued. “I’m hoping ‘SNL’ was the one thing he chose to ignore so he could actually do his job.”
