Paparazzo-beating actor Alec Baldwin had the nerve to accuse President Donald Trump and his supporters of causing the “moral collapse” of America on Monday, January 13. The 61-year-old actor, known for his Donald Trump impersonation on NBC sketch series Saturday Night Live, dropped the satire for a more direct and aggressive condemnation of the Hollywood-hated president and his followers on social media.
It’s no surprise that people in the “mainstream media” in news and entertainment are tilted so far to the left that they very likely could not be much more liberal. Nevertheless, in a ridiculous effort to bring more conservative viewers to NBC’s Saturday Night Live program, producer Lorne Michaels saw his clumsy strategy blow up in his face after it was discovered newly hired “conservative” comic Shane Gillis had used his podcast to openly attack homosexuals, Asians and other minority groups.
On Monday night's Amanpour & Co. on PBS, former Time Managing Editor Walter Isaacson interviewed Alec Baldwin about, among other things, his Donald Trump impression on Saturday Night Live. Baldwin admitted he didn't understand Trump, and that his impression is a "caricature....we're doing like an essence of Trump. His corrupt, amoral, Machiavellian nature is at the fore." Then he said he was distraught that being president didn't change Trump at all.
Good for literally every sound-minded person on the planet: Alec Baldwin says he’s going to start winding down his terrible impression of Donald Trump. Sitting down with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, Baldwin intimated that he might be starting to grow tired of the role, and that it’s the SNL producers who “keep pulling me back in.” Sad!
Appearing on Monday’s Today show to promote a new movie, Alec Baldwin dismissed President Trump’s criticism of how the actor portrays him on Saturday Night Live. Baldwin claimed that he “can’t care” what Trump thinks and lamented the “dark history” that has supposedly occurred since the President took office.
Given the ongoing anti-Trump onslaught in late-night television, it should come as no surprise that Republicans and Democrats have very different perspectives on how political content is used in those “comedy” shows, whether they’re on the mainstream networks or cable TV. According to a recent survey, 54 percent of Democrats said they watch late-night talk shows, compared to 26 percent of Republicans. Also, Democrats were far more likely than those in the GOP to say they like it when late-night hosts discuss politics or personal political views.
Conservative street artist Sabo struck a nerve earlier this year when he plastered the words, “We All Knew” across Hollywood. Sabo’s message? Entertainment insiders clearly knew something about mega producer Harvey Weinstein’s alleged reign of sexual abuse terror. How could so many women come forward about abuse accusations without someone in Savethe industry hearing about it … and saying nothing?
Fortunately for any conservatives tuning into The Alec Baldwin Show on ABC, the interview time with Planned Parenthood’s former president Cecile Richards was quite short, especially compared to the other guest, comedian, and actor, Mike Myers. The Richards interview only lasted about ten minutes of the hour-long show.
The Alec Baldwin Show premiered on ABC Sunday night and it went about as I expected. The first guest on the talk show was the actor/liberal political activist, Robert De Niro. About half-way through the interview, Baldwin and De Niro launched into an attack on President Trump and Republicans in general, too.
One might expect Jerry Seinfeld's latest edition of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, "2018: Freshly Brewed," on Netflix to get political, since comedians just can't seem to help themselves right now in jumping on the Trump bashing train, so I was pleasantly surprised to find the focus on funny instead of on politics. In fact, when guests tried to get political, Seinfeld quickly shut them down, or - shock - they talked about liberal intolerance!
Much of the damage people on both left and right feared President Donald Trump would do hasn’t come to pass. But he may leave us something infinitely worse than high taxes or bruised international feelings: President Baldwin..
Comedienne Michelle Wolf is a hero, according to media and Hollywood figures who are racing to defend her recent outrageous statements, regardless of how the rest of America reacts.
