Alec Baldwin's Approach To His Trump Impersonation Is Brilliant

Baldwin 'I really feel sorry' for Trump

Baldwin 'I really feel sorry' for Trump

The 30 Rock actor, who has become known for his unflattering impressions of current incumbent Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, said given the chance he'd like to lead the American people "on a more spiritual level".

In reply, Baldwin said his impression was "totally a caricature" and went through the motions of how he pulls it off. You go, 'Left eyebrow up, right eyebrow down.

"Trump isn't your first questionable president that you have experience with", said Colbert, bringing out a letter Richard Nixon wrote to Baldwin about losing his bid for president at his university.

It definitely isn't an easy face to make, let alone hold for the duration of an entire "SNL" sketch, we'd imagine. "More than anything I've ever done, people come up to me and say something on the streets", usually "thank you". Colbert and Baldwin start talking the "SNL" version of Trump around 3:15.

Trump signs 'Buy American, Hire American' executive order targeting foreign material sourcing
Critics of the programme have said these organisations get crowded out by outsourcing companies that are mostly from India. The Trump administration said that if the waivers are not benefiting the USA they will be "renegotiated or revoked".

He showed Colbert how he prepared for the impersonations and discussed how he pulls the look off.

"You pick a few things...left eyebrow up, right eyebrow down - and shove your face out like you're trying to suck the chrome off the fender of a vehicle".

That's Alec Baldwin's trick in mastering the flawless Donald Trump impression!
