“Saturday Night Live” cast member and actor Alec Baldwin may finally throw in the Trump towel.
The Trump impersonator indicated on Saturday through Twitter that he will likely step down from his parodical portrayal of the president. In a tweet, Baldwin captioned a picture with the quote “one more time…” followed by a picture of himself dressed as Trump.
It should be noted that Saturday night’s episode is the last for the 42nd season. However, Baldwin has previously mentioned quitting the comedic gig. In March, Baldwin told the British Press Association the following:
“After [season 42] I don’t quite know. I don’t quite know if people want to continue with that. If everything stays the same in the country as it is now, I don’t think people will be in the mood to laugh about it come September.”
Baldwin, a publicly staunch Trump critic, also indicated that if he were offered to portray the commander in chief at another program or venue, he would likely decline:
“I don’t know if I’d want to be Trump for more than a five-minute slug of time on ‘Saturday Night Live.’ You’d have to pay me an ungodly amount of money because it would be exhausting. It would be tiresome.”
