Actor Alec Baldwin, who has been tormenting the President-elect with his portrayal of Trump on NBC’s ‘Saturday Night Live,’ is reportedly in talks to take his role outside of ‘SNL.’
“I’m going to do [Saturday Night Live’ as much as I can,” Baldwin told ABC News, "and there’s discussions about other venues we might pursue to further express our gratitude and admiration for the Trump administration.”
When asked about the President-elect and his plans to hold him accountable over the next four years, Baldwin said that he won’t have to do anything, and credited Trump with being "the head writer of all the material we do.”
"We just sit back and we look at Twitter, we read the news and we go. ‘There it is!’ And we probably should be, according to the WGA, be giving Trump some writing credits for what he’s done for us,” he said. "we’re just gonna sit back and just let the good times roll.”
Trump has been very vocal about his distaste for Baldwin’s portrayal of him with regular early Sunday morning tweets blasting the actor and the show. And for his part, the actor has only increased his taunts of the President-elect, tweeting back some zingers.
Recently, Baldwin capitalized on Trump’s troubles in booking celebrities to perform at his inauguration by mockingly offering to perform the AC/DC song ‘Highway to Hell.’
