Alec Baldwin: I’m Going To ‘Give It Everything’ To Get Rid Of Trump
Alec Baldwin said he and his wife have decided that they are going to “give it everything we have” to help Democrats win the midterms and “get rid of” President Donald Trump.
“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,” the 59-year-old actor shared with The Hollywood Reporter Thursday.
“I’ll vote for Mitt Romney,” he added. “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,” he continued. “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.”
In the same piece, Baldwin was asked about playing Trump on “Saturday Night Live” and how much longer he plans to do his impersonation of the president.
“Every time I do it now, it’s like agony,” the “30 Rock” star explained. “Agony. I can’t.”
Earlier this week, ABC announced that they had purchased another eight more episodes of “Sunday’s with Alec Baldwin,” with the pilot airing this Sunday after the Oscars.
The first episode hosted by Baldwin is being billed as a sneak peek and will feature an hour-long show with comedian Jerry Seinfeld and “Saturday Night Live” alum Kate McKinnon. The topics will range from the current state of comedy under Trump to the ups-and-downs of their lives before and after they made it big.
