Saturday Night Live are squeezing as much out of this US Presidential Election as possible. The show recently utilized the great acting talents of Alec Baldwin to spoof the Republican candidate on multiple skits over the weekend. NME reports that the 58-year old New York local and star of such films as The Departed, The Aviator, Beetlejuice and The Hunt for Red October gave a near flawless impersonation of the real estate mogul. The parody was a response to the allegations of sexual assault coming fresh off a leaked tape in 2005.
Baldwin Impression Not Far From Reality
"Are you not entertained?" Baldwin asked in his best Trump voice. "I would like to take this time to formerly apple-o-jize - I deeply, apple-o-jize." Asked if he was trying to say the word 'apologize' he set the record straight. "No I would never do that," said Baldwin. "What I am doing is apple-o-gizing to all the people that were offended by my statements but more importantly to the people that were turned on by them. I hear it's really 50/50."
With the quote from Trump that he likes to grab women "by the pussy" while on a bus ride with Billy Bush, the jokes were lined up for Baldwin to knock them out of the park.
"I was trying to look cool," explained the actor. "What normal, red-blooded American doesn't want to impress the Billy Bush? Also, it's kind of funny that the only Bush that matters in this general election is Billy."
De Niro Holds No Punches For The Billionaire
Baldwin wasn't the only one to take a stab at Trump. NME reports that Academy Award winner Robert De Niro tore away from parody to deliver a damaging message for the Republican candidate. All while looking down the lens of the camera.
"He's so blatantly stupid. He's a punk, he's a dog, he's a pig, he's a con, a bullshit artist, a mutt who doesn't know what he's talking about, who doesn't do his homework, doesn't care, thinks he's gaming society, doesn't pay his taxes." Begins De Niro. "He's an idiot, Colin Powell said it best - he's a national disaster. He's an embarrassment to this country. It makes me so angry that this country has got to this point where this fool, this bozo has wound up where he has. He talks about how he wants to punch people in the face, well, I'd like to punch him in the face."
Don't sugarcoat it Robert, let us know how you really feel...
