Alec Baldwin’s “Trump” Confession

Alec Baldwin revealed on “Ellen” that President Donald J. Trump was invited to make an appearance on “Saturday Night Live” back in February. “When I hosted SNL this season (for a record 17th time), we invited (President Trump) to come,” Baldwin, who famously impersonates Trump on SNL, told host Ellen DeGeneres. “We were so hopeful he would come, but he didn’t show up.”

Baldwin made similar comments last month on “The Howard Stern Show.”

Stern asked Baldwin if appearing with Trump would have implied that the actor supported his policies. Baldwin, an outspoken critic of Trump, didn’t think so, telling Stern that “SNL is an entertainment show. It’s there to entertain and then, when that’s over with, I don’t hold back.”

Trump hosted “Saturday Night Live” in November 2015 when he was a presidential candidate, but it’s no secret that The Donald and “Saturday Night Live” have a pretty adversarial relationship these days. Last year, Trump attacked the show repeatedly, calling it “unwatchable” and “not funny at all.”

Baldwin told DeGeneres that he was initially reluctant to do the impersonation. “Lorne [Michaels] was calling me and saying, ‘Do you want to play Trump? I said I don’t want to play Trump. That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard in my life.

In March, Baldwin told “Extra” that “the maliciousness of this White House has people very worried, which is why I’m not going to do (the impersonation) much longer.”
