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.
In the election’s immediate aftermath, we had to wonder if Alec Baldwin had the SNL commitment to keep playing Trump as necessary for such a weekly target. Baldwin’s been a sport since November, even pivoting the impression into other mediums, but may hang up the wig before long . “I don’t [know] how much more people can take it.”
The initial shock of Donald Trump’s election left it unclear if SNL would continually call on Alec Baldwin for such an extended commitment, but the 30 Rock alum and ranking host has soldiered on, much to the real Trump’s enjoyable chagrin. Baldwin may even follow in Will Ferrell’s “Dubya” footsteps, apparently taking the role to “other venues.”
