Let’s be honest – SNL’s Trump impression has little to do these days but parrot back actual statements, and even Alec Baldwin thinks playing the role is “agony.” Trump himself even used Baldwin’s quote to push SNL into bringing Darrell Hammond’s iteration back, and maybe … he’s not wrong?
We’ll find out this weekend whether Alec Baldwin’s SNL work nets him a yuge Emmy win, but the uncanny Trump impression will nonetheless remain front and center when Season 43 premieres. Baldwin confirms he’ll be back as early as September 30, and likely beyond.
Most everything we’ve heard from SNL Season 43 has involved those leaving the series behind, so there’s finally good news from up top. So long as our national nightmare persists, Alec Baldwin will be back in his golden wig to deliver that bigly famous Trump impression.
We knew Melissa McCarthy scooting around town meant SNL had it in for Sean Spicer, and boy, did they deliver. Watch the biggest “Spicey” sketch yet, as the beleaguered press secretary takes to the streets of New York City to seek out Donald Trump himself.
The animosity between SNL and Donald Trump isn’t going anywhere, but it’s hard to overlook the series’ role in normalizing the then-presidential candidate. Well, as it turns out, SNL apparently tried to mend fences with its fiercest critic, inviting Trump back alongside Alec Baldwin.
Once upon a time, Alec Baldwin taking on the role of SNL’s Donald Trump seemed like an amusing guest spot to take us through the debates. Now, the question remains how long Baldwin will play the beleaguered president, especially as the reigning host claims he never wanted the role in the first place.
