Alec Baldwin is taking a step away from political satire to campaign for Virginia Democrats.
The 61-year-old actor, best known these days for his mocking impersonation of President Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live,” is heading to Virginia to help Democratic legislative candidates.
The progressive advocacy group People for the American Way helped organize the trip. Baldwin is a board member of the group and has been an outspoken critic of Trump.
Virginia is one of only four states holding legislative elections this year and the only one where partisan control of the legislature is up for grabs. National groups view Virginia as a warm up to the 2020 presidential cycle and are pouring money into the state.
Baldwin has been very vocal about his distaste for the Trump administration in the past, most notably by way of his over-the-top impression of the president on “SNL.” Although he’s previously stated he’d rather a meteor take out the building than continue to play Trump on the hit sketch series, he confirmed he’ll still do it. Baldwin recently revealed to “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon that the show’s creator, Lorne Michaels, convinced him to stick around a little longer.
My Question to you is do you even watch this wretch of a show anymore? Leave us a comment below.
