No, no one got a voicemail message from Alec Baldwin screaming obscenities about barnyard animals and gratitude. But it did involve creative insults, yelling, and a NYC street, which I believe are the top three things that certify this as a classic Alec Baldwin temper tantrum.
Some people can get a little wrought when I wax hateful about Trump So I will try to keep the anti-Trump talk to a minimum for this post. Kind of like his efforts to aid Puerto Rico. I kid (I don’t)! It was the season premiere of SNL’s 43rd season last night. Ryan Gosling hosted, Emma Stone popped up (is a special edition of La La Land coming out or something?), and Alec Baldwin brought back his Emmy-winning Donald Trump impression.
That’s a superhero movie I actually want to see! (Wonder Woman left me feeling empty, despite all the reviews.) Rueful comedienne Kathy Griffin has split our nation down the center (*eye-roll*) and finally defined her comedic legacy – fake decapitated POTUS heads and weepy press conferences! While Trumpets want HER head, and the rest of us roll our eyes at a bad choice exacerbated by attention whoring, celebrities are coming to Kathy’s defense.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hosted the Saturday Night Live season finale last night and announced he was running for president, as he threatened in GQ. He also brought out America’s Dad Tom Hanks and announced him as his running mate. I’m on board.
Right now, I’d stump for a facecloth, or a teacup poodle or an impacted molar for POTUS at this point. Literally, ANYTHING would be better than the “berzerker child” option with which America went. Check out The Rock’s monologue, below.
SNL also revisited their post-election cold open. This time, instead of Kate McKinnon covering Hillary Clinton covering Leonard Cohen, it was Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump and the rest of the cast as his administration and family (with a surprise cameo from Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka “Complicit” Trump). Here it is:
Wait, SNL’s done for the season? Where am I going to get my news? Will Anderson Cooper keep insulting the president’s lackeys on CNN? Can we get confirmation on that? That could be my sole news source now if he keeps being a shady lady to stupids.
The carousel of destruction that is our American political system under the Trump regime seems to spin faster and faster with each passing day.
This week, Donald Trump fired his FBI director who, coincidentally, was currently heading up an investigation into his ties to Mother Russia. In an effort to assure us that we’re not crazy and everything is definitely in a state of WTF, Melissa McCarthy and Alec Baldwin reprised their press secretary Sean Spicer and president Donald Trump impressions on Saturday Night Live last night. At least we’ll have something to laugh about as everything crumbles around us, right?
In Alec Baldwin’s new memoir, Nevertheless, he talks about being horrified to learn that Nikki Reed was underage when they filmed Mini’s First Time, a limited-release comedy drama from 2006. The movie is about a high school student named Mini (Nikki) who decides to be an escort and accidentally gets called by her stepdad (Alec). Then they go on to (spoiler alert!) murder Mini’s mom.
Alec claims in his book that he was 47-years-old when they shot the movie, and it never occurred to him to ask how old Nikki was. When Alec discovered that Nikki had just turned 17, he flipped out on the rude, thoughtless little pigs on set who failed to mention just how young she was. Except that it might not have happened like that. According to one of the producers of Mini’s First Time, Alec is lying.
