On Friday, Alec Baldwin was spotted wearing a red hat similar to the Donald Trump ‘Make America Great Again’ baseball cap.
But the one that Baldwin was wearing used the Cyrillic alphabet to convey the message in Russian, an obvious jab at the President-elect and his continuous support of Russia, especially in the wake of the revelations by the U.S. intelligence community regarding Moscow’s hacking of certain U.S. establishments — government and corporate.
On Friday, the actor posted a selfie of himself wearing the ‘Russian MAGA cap’ on Instagram.
Trump has repeatedly clashed with Baldwin over the actor’s portrayal of him on NBC’s ‘Saturday Night Live,’ with regular early Sunday morning tweets. Baldwin, on the other hand, seems to be only too happy to get under the President-elect’s skin, tweeting back with zingers.
Since Trump’s election victory, Baldwin has regularly portrayed the President-elect as a know-nothing who is incapable of grasping even simple concepts. In November, after watching an episode of the show, Trump tweeted blasting the show and the actor, “Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse. Sad”

The actor responded by offering the President-elect an out — a way that he could rid himself of the impersonations for good. He offered to stop impersonating Trump if Trump would just release his taxes, a challenge to which Trump has never responded.
Release your tax returns and I'll stop.
