Tom Hanks made a fantastic Chris Wallace. This was the most over the top one of the 3. By now, the writers are probably like, what the hell, why hold back? If a thing is this ridiculous, go all the way.

Baldwin gets better every time with Trump's mannerisms, almost to the point I could tolerate a Trump Presidency if Baldwin would continue to lampoon and ridicule him for four years.

What I find most hilarious is that Alec Baldwin has the shameless impudence and the unmitigated effrontary to mock Donald Trump. Baldwin physically assaults people, demeans women worse than Trump, and throws tantrums that would make a 5-year old look mature. Hollywood douchebaggery at its absolute apex!

It's a comedy skit, you should probably chill on the shameless impudence and effrontery. I also think an effontary has something to do with one of those roll out awnings advertised on TV all the time.


Act now and we will include this decorative effrontary!

Thanks Reldra! I had missed it, as usual.

Who you gonna vote for? The Republican or Donald Trump?

That line made me laugh out loud.

Baldwin is a closet Trump voter.

He will get so much money and attention over the next four years doing his impression.

Besides, Baldwin is in real life what he projects Trump's persona as being.

It is a political hit piece disguised as comedy.
Hillary gets an award winning comedian to portray her, Trump gets a pretentious unpopular actor portraying him.

You missed my point entirely. I said the real comedy is that Baldwin is mocking someone for character defects that Baldwin himself displays to a much greater degree.

Effrontery is rude, shameless behaviour.

Of course, even comedy skits are rigged.

When you spell it right, it is.

I have to disagree--Baldwin's Trump is one of the worst that I have seen. I think that it's because he takes the mannerisms so far over the top that it goes beyond humorous to me and makes me think that he isn't in control over the amplitude of his mockery.

Plus, I just think that Baldwin and Trump are way too similar is personality and actions for Baldwin to think that mocking Trump is something that is okay for him to do.

While Reldra points out--rightfully so--that it's a comedy skit, that doesn't mean that it is funny to everyone. Hell, Taran Killam did a better Trump than Baldwin, and it's not even that good, either. Darrell Hammond, though--there's no one that he doesn't get on point.


I'm not trying to be a Debbie Downer (see what I did there?), but I just had to disagree because my wife and I were talking about how much we didn't like Baldwin's Trump. But to be fair, I don't like Baldwin as a human being, so that may sway my opinion, although I like most of his appearances on SNL, so who knows.

Sorta like Trump. His hyperbolic platitudes and constant hand gestures are what make him so inimitably mockable.

I see this as a clown playing a caricature of a clown.

Oh no doubt about that. SNL has long been a tool of liberal media. But even I, a Trump voter, have to laugh at Baldwin's portrayal. And when he made that crack about his brother....priceless. The gal doing Hillary...hysterical.

Probably doing as much damage to the system as Fey did to Palin...but not much to do about it.
