I’m here to talk about impressions, the one issue that really matters. I don’t know or care what you think about President Trump. I don’t know or care what you think of Bill O’Reilly. Don’t tell me what you think. I don’t care. This is about Alec Baldwin and his impressions.

Welcome to the no-spin zone.


Alec Baldwin, special-recurring-non-cast-non-host-SNL-guest, has upped his game by doing two impersonations simultaneously. Say what you will about Baldwin (and there is a lot you could say), but agree that this is a feat. It’s an easy trick to prerecord one impersonation then perform the other live, but really hard to pull off. Cheers.

But are the impressions good? Honestly, I never loved the pouty Trump. Any impression worth it’s salt takes a quirk and turns it into a personality, i.e. Dana Carvey’s George H.W. Bush. The toddler-about-to-cry doesn’t quite land. But Trump, instead of rising above a liberal late night comedy show, hates it and cries about it like a toddler, so here we are.

Baldwin nails O’Reilly: the over enthusiastic smile, his voice ramping up the first half of a sentence only to mumble his way through the second half. the book peddling…it’s all there. Even if you are a Factor Faithful– I assume that is what his fans area called- you can admit he does a good job. The thing is, O’Reilly can laugh about something like this, so it will be short-lived.

We’ll have to settle for the lesser of the two Baldwin impressions. C’est la vie…

You can watch both impressions here, but A WARNING FIRST: IF YOU LIKE EITHER REAL PERSON, DON’T WATCH IT. IF SNL MAKES YOU ANGRY WITH IT’S SEXUAL INNUENDO AND DRUG REFERENCES, DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND DON’T WATCH IT. IF YOU ALREADY WANT TO RANT ON FACEBOOK ABOUT THIS DO NOT WATCH THIS! For the rest of you, knock yourself out.
