Turns out Alec Baldwin wasn’t as big a fan as we were of his impersonation of President Trump.
The impersonation, which earned tons of praise from fans and critics alike, began to wear immensely on Baldwin, just because he dislikes Trump so much. Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, Baldwin said:
“Every time I do it now, it’s like agony. Agony. I can’t. If things don’t go in the right direction for the midterms. … I could go out on the street, stand on any corner and tap 10 people on the shoulder. And all 10 of them, in all likelihood, would be more qualified — ethically, morally, intellectually and spiritually — than Trump. I’ll vote for Mitt Romney. I don’t care. Anybody over this guy. It doesn’t matter. We have to get rid of him. And that’s another project I’m working on. I was the keynote speaker at the Democratic Dinner in Iowa, and I’m gonna go do a couple more of those this year. My wife and I agreed that we’re gonna give it everything we have. And then if, God forbid, he wins again in 2020, I’m wondering can I host a game show in Spain.”
Whether this means Baldwin won’t be playing Trump again remains to be seen, but it certainly seems like he isn’t rushing back to portray the Donald again.
It didn’t take long for Trump to fire back at Baldwin for his comments, saying on Twitter:
Yeah, I don’t think Trump and Baldwin like each other very much.
