Live from New York, it’s...Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump?
Ya read that right.
The erstwhile Emmy-winning star of TV’s 30 Rock is going to be featured throughout the upcoming 42nd season of TV’s Saturday Night Live as the Republican presidential nominee. Writing that made me throw up in my mouth a little bit just now – FYI.
Baldwin, of course, will appear opposite fellow Emmy winner Kate McKinnon, who will continue rockin’ it as America’s next president, the Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton.
The news was confirmed today, via the show’s Twitter account.
You can see Baldwin make his debut as the blowhard – that is probably the nicest thing I’ve ever called Trump... – on Oct. 1, when Margot Robbie hosts the first episode of the new season.
