Alec Baldwin's Approach To His Trump Impersonation Is Brilliant


So that's how he does it.

Few political impressions have made an impact the way Alec Baldwin's version of President Donald Trump on "Saturday Night Live" has, even if Baldwin isn't actually a regular cast member on the show. "I think, more than anything I've ever done, people come up to me and say something on the streets", Baldwin explained, revealing how he is approached by people who want to thank him for lampooning the controversial president while out and about in NY.

To play the real estate developer turned reality TV star turned president, Baldwin said he needed "to make it totally a caricature".

"Left eyebrow up, right eyebrow down". Still, people love it. Baldwin shared that strangers always stop to thank him for his Trump impression while he is out and about in NY, to the point that it's "eerie". On Tuesday, he stopped by 'The Late Show' and surprised host Stephen Colbert with an impromptu impersonation of Richard Nixon.

"It's not going to open the door for nontraditional candidates", opined Baldwin. "Lovely idea", Colbert said, "but the tax march did not get Trump to release his taxes, much like the women's march did not get Trump to release his women".

What's better than an Alec Baldwin impression of Trump?
