“I’m not going to paint every African-American person with the same brush, but…”
One-half of the most baffling SNL season finale in recent memory, Alec Baldwin, is on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter, where he discussed his Sundays with Alec Baldwin talk show and… actually, let’s go to the pull quote.
Alec Baldwin is a fine actor ( Beetlejuice! 30 Rock! Beetlejuice! Mission: Impossible — Fallout! Beetle… I’m not going to fall for that again) with a distinctive voice, but when he says, “Black people love me. They love me. Everywhere I go, black people go crazy,” it’s hard to not hear Trump saying the same thing. The impersonator has become the impersonate-e (?).
Baldwin also discussed the time The Late Show host Stephen Colbert (who he has a lot of thoughts on) asked him what makes him an angry guy . “If I don’t [respond], I am the angry guy,” he said. “You can’t win either way because people have already made up their minds. It’s either, ‘Alec Baldwin, I think you’re a philanthropic, wonderful citizen of the community, whatever talent you have’ or ‘Alec Baldwin, you’re just an asshole.’ And it’s never going to change.”
Choose your side wisely.
