During an interview on the television show “Extra,” Alec Baldwin admitted that he may soon stop doing President Trump impersonations on “Saturday Night Live.”
Baldwin said this about his impressions to Mario Lopez on “Extra:”
“There’s a style the president has to have, and I think the maliciousness of this White House is a little … has people very worried, which is why I’m not going to do it much longer, by the way. That whole impersonation, I don’t [know] how much more people can take it, you know?”
“Trump just overwhelmingly lacks any kind of sportsmanship. He remains bitter and angry. And you want to look at him, and you want to go, ‘You won!’”
President Trump has made his disdain for the Baldwin impressions known through several tweets since December, calling the Saturday Night Live sketch “sad,” and saying the impression “just can’t get any worse.”
Baldwin also rebutted a report that he may make a surprise appearance at this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, which Trump announced he will not attend.
Baldwin said, “I don’t think that’s going to happen. I don’t think that they want that. If Trump himself doesn’t come and face the music as it were — I don’t know what kind of program they’re going to have.”
Baldwin did say that he would do it if asked.
“If they wanted me to do it, I’d probably do it … but I’m not quite sure they do. I think they may have a whole other idea.”
