Trump trumps Fake Trump

Alec Baldwin whined to the Hollywood Reporter about mocking President Donald John Trump on SNL.

Trump got him good.
The interviewer asked, "How much longer will you play Trump on Saturday Night Live?"

Whiny 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."

President Trump tweeted, "Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch. Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!"

Hammond was good. Dana Carvey was good as Bush 41. No one did Reagan as well as Phil Hartman, not even Reagan.

But Baldwin seems to base his performance on the New York Daily News depiction of Trump. I doubt Whiny bothered to study Trump.

The media chose to go to war with Donald John Trump in 2017 rather than accept him as president.

The media chose poorly.

From Leslie Eastman's review at Legal Insurrection:
Surber, a recovering journalist with over 30 years of experience, has been cataloging the #FakeNews that has been regularly offered as serious analysis of President Donald Trump’s actions, policies, and opinions. He has brought his enormous collection together in the longest, most serious book he has yet written: Fake News Follies of 2017.
Fake News Follies of 2017 is available on Kindle and in paperback.

Autographed copies are available. Email me at DonSurber@GMail.com for details. I am including a "director's cut." I will give you the original Chapter 1 that I cut because while the chapter was amusing, it really had nothing to do with the Fake News Follies of 2017.

  1. Ladies and Gentlemen - with his inner circle in total chaos, and Russia punking him on many levels - here is your president at 5:40 a.m.

    "Alex Baldwin, whose dieing mediocre career was saved by his impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing DJT was agony for him. Alex, it was also agony for those who were forced to watch. You were terrible. Bring back Darrell Hammond, much funnier and a far greater talent!”

    2. "Grow up" - good one. I'm not the one tweeting at 5:40 a.m. with butt hurt.

    3. He was still awake from taking the 3am calls Obama was afraid to take because Jarret was asleep. He works round the clock.

    5. Project much? You guys want Trump to be a pussy like Obama so badly that you'll throw anything at the wall despite the complete absence of proof.

      Why are you lefties so worried about Russia anyways...the 80s called and wants their foreign policy back.

  2. If I had a dollar for every Hollywood jerk who threatened to leave the country if Trump were elected/re-elected I'd buy Baldwin a one way ticket to Spain.

    2. Why Spain? Why not Mexico? Or Haiti?

  4. Alec Baldwin and his wife think that "giving it everything we have" is to give more keynote speeches at local Democratic Party dinners. And he may be right about that.

    I wonder if in these inspirational speeches he reprises any of his lines from Glengarry Glen Ross?

    (Anyway, Trump was right. Baldwin's career has been going downhill since his star turn in 2004's Team America: World Police.)

    1. He was brilliant in Team America!

      Some say his performance was wooden, and it looked like he was some puppet on a string, but those naysayers just don't see the depths of his acting!

      Why, it took years of rehearsal and lots of talent for Baldwin to play that blockhead so accurately!

  5. And Spain is asking what it did to deserve Alec Baldwin.

  6. “I'm wondering can I host a game show in Spain.”

    Nah, I think Baldwin should go on a hitchhiking tour of the Middle East.

    Where he will rapidly discover just what it means there to stand by the side of the road with your thumb extended.

  7. Alec Baldwin should impersonate the Alec Baldwin of "Red October". That was the only decent acting he ever did.

    And Connery had to carry him for most of that.

  9. I absolutely love how President Donald John Trump, 45th President of the United States, lives inside the lefty heads 24/7. Sleeping or waking, it's all Trump, all the time. :)
