Alec Baldwin Says Trump Tweeting About Him Is "Surreal"

Alec Baldwin Says Trump Tweeting About Him Is

"It is kind of surreal though, you know-the president of the United States", Baldwin told host Jimmy Fallon.

Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his awful impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony.

The 59-year-old did admit that it was "surreal" to be attacked on Twitter by the president, but wondered about Trump's Twitter obsession and whether he interrupts important meetings to say, "Hold on one minute, Alec Baldwin is a loser".

There are many reasons for Saturday Night Live's surge in the ratings over the last two seasons, but arguably the biggest contributing factor is Alec Baldwin's Emmy-winning impression of President Donald Trump.

"Well, the interesting thing is nobody is actually forced to watch", Baldwin quipped to Fallon. "Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent".

Alec Baldwin really, really meant what he said about the agony of becoming Trump.

"We thought we'd do three shows", Baldwin recalls of those campaign days.

While Baldwin had expressed concern over making Trump seem "too cuddly", all indications pointed toward an extended run in the role for him.

As for Trump's tweet that true agony is being forced to watch SNL, Baldwin noted that the only forcing going on is Trump's requirement that some people listen to him: "We call them the Cabinet".

"Does he have like alerts?"

"Like is he there, as they say, watching "Fox & Friends" in the morning, he's got like his triple order of bacon", said Baldwin, "And he's got a phone and he's watching the news. And he's like tweeting, tweeting".
