Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump started last night’s Saturday Night Live cold open by noting “Yes, this is real life. This is really happening.”
Truer words and all that! It was revealed this week that US intelligence agencies were given info that our incoming president allegedly might have been compromised- sorry, “kompromated-ed,” by the Russians. With what, you ask?
Despite our current political situation feeling like we’re all aboard a transatlantic flight when suddenly a complete and utter jackass with no training has been allowed to fly the fucking plane, there is still room for laughter.
This week, when Donald Trump wasn’t bizarrely insisting that more nuclear weapons would solve all of our problems, he bragged about all the A-listers dying to be at his inauguration. The laughter stems from the fact that he might be… hold on to your pearls… lying. President-elect Circus Peanut is reportedly panicking because most celebrities would rather be caught in inappropriate situations with farm animals than be seen at his inauguration. One celebrity, however, has stepped forward to offer their star power.
The only thing that will get some of us through the next four years (oh, everything that is holy and good and kind in the cosmos, please let it only be four years) is going to be laughter. Luckily, Alec Baldwin’s perfect impression of President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live is like a gentle hug from America itself, along with a soft whisper letting us know that, perhaps, everything will be ok (it probably won’t, but for this post and our sanity, lets play along).
There’s plenty of things to dislike about Alec Baldwin. Often times his teeth aren’t able to snap shut quickly enough before ridiculous statements escape his mouth. He’s highly irritable. He’s married to a woman who does yoga on planes. And we’ll always have #RudeThoughtlessLittlePig.
He has managed to balance the scales, however, with the pluperfect Donald Trump impression he unveiled on the Saturday Night Live premiere. Not since Larry David did Bernie Sanders has it worked so well! His characterization, teamed with whomever wrote the opening number, truly captured our potential future Asshole-In-Chief. The cold open satirized last week’s first presidential debate, and Kate McKinnon is still playing Hillary Clinton.
The Hollywood Reporter sez that the idea to have Alec play Donald was Tina Fey’s and longtime SNL czar Lorne Michaels.
The choice to go with Baldwin over a current cast member was the idea of former star and head writer Tina Fey, “SNL” creator Lorne Michaels told The Hollywood Reporter.
“I just thought he’d be brilliant doing it and I thought he and Kate [McKinnon] would be a match,” Michaels said.

In my mind, that’s Hilaria Baldwin’s birthin’ pose and as she does it, Alec Baldwin stands on the other side of the delivery room waiting to catch their latest bundle of baby. Also in my mind, those two pooches are bracing themselves for a possible double yoga fart-queef attack.
58-year-old Alec Baldwin became somebody’s father for the fourth time yesterday. People says that in NYC last night, Alec’s second wife, 32-year-old Hilaria Baldwin, gave birth to a baby boy who I’m sure is already doing the one-handed tree pose in a crib.
1. Whenever I’m struggling to get through anything, I’m going to think of the lady making a “fuck my life” in that picture. If she can get through Hilaria Baldwin practically Sleeping Yogi-ing a queef into her face, I can get through almost anything.
2. I bet that’s the pose Hilaria was in when she and Alec Baldwin conceived their third kid. Hilaria did that pose while Alec jacked off above her with one hand and punched a paparazzo he paid with the other. It’s the only way he can get off.
The Queen of the Downward Look At Me Pose announced on Instagram today that a tiny yogi fetus is doing the child’s pose in her womb. 32-year-old Hilaria said that in a few months, 57-year-old Alec will once again get to cradle a little bundle of adorable while saying, “Aww, you little, rude, thoughtless pig, you.”
Ireland, Carmen, Rafael, Alec, and I are excited to share with you that we are going to have another addition to our family. A little boy coming this fall #366daysoflivingclearly #HilariaLCM
Ireland is, of course, Alec’s 20-year-old daughter with Kim Basinger. Rafael is Alec and Hilaria’s 8-month-old son and Carmen is their 2 1/2-year-old daughter. I know, three babies in three years. Either she’s really fertile from busting out yoga poses in all sorts of places for Instagram likes. Or he’s really fertile from choking out paps. Or both!
And this winter, I better see an Instagram picture of Hilaria standing on her head while holding one kid with her right hand and another kid with her left hand as her newborn son naps on top of her flexed foot. If I don’t see that, I will really question her skills. Here’s Hilarious and Alec at the NYC premiere of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot last week.
