Donald Trump gets last laugh on SNL! Alec Baldwin tucked his tail between his legs and moved on

Actor and comedian Alec Baldwin tucked his tail between his legs and ran from playing the role of President-elect Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live” this week.

In fact, he might have run from it forever.

Baldwin told ex-REM frontman Michael Stipe this week that his contempt for Trump was the reason he never intended to do the impression after Election Day.

“When I was approached by Lorne, who is a friend of mine, to do it, my first impulse was ‘no.’ Because in order to do that effectively, you need to have at least some appreciation of the person … for which Trump I have none,” he said.

He said something similar when he spoke to WNYC’s The Brian Lehrer Show.

“I’m trying to shed the Donald Trump cloak,” he said.

One year ago, Ann Coulter was mercilessly laughed at on Bill Maher’s stage … but who’s laughing now?

“I’m not an impressionist, per se, but if you do any kind of comedy and they ask you to do that, most of the time, there’s some degree of appreciation, I think, involving somebody you like,” the staunch Democrat said. “Trump is somebody who, I don’t hate Trump, but he’s not somebody I admire, so it was more difficult.”

NBC has not commented or said who, if anyone, will play the role of the president-elect in tonight’s episode.
