On Monday night, Alec Baldwin sat down with ExtraTV to talk about what very well may be the most famous role of his career — President Donald Trump.
Baldwin began portraying the president on “Saturday Night Live” long before the election, and his impression has gotten under Trump’s skin, as the actor and the show have been the subject of a handful of critical tweets. But Baldwin says that he might be moving on from the role that has boosted his career.
Baldwin is no fan of the president, and in his interview, he criticized Trump for his bad temper.
“Trump just overwhelmingly lacks any sportsmanship. He remains bitter and angry, and you just want to look at him and go ‘you won,'” Baldwin said. “I think the maliciousness of this White House has people very worried, which is why I’m not going to do it much longer. I don’t know how much more people can take it.”
President Trump has said that he will not attend the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. As the president will be absent, many of Baldwin’s fans have lobbied for him to play the leader at the event.
“I don’t think that’s going to happen. I don’t think that they want that,” Baldwin said. “I think for their prestige and their integrity…if they want me to do it, I would probably do it.”
