I think we’ll be watching Alec Baldwin play Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live for a long, long, long time. Baldwin just laid out the condition under which he would stop playing the role and it’s a condition we know Trump will not agree to.
Too much to hide!
Donald Trump told the world that he tried watching Saturday Night Live AGAIN, but couldn’t, “Unwatchable!” Trump said, “Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse. Sad”
Baldwin happily replied; – “Release you tax returns and I’ll stop”
Release your tax returns and I’ll stop.

No one really knows for sure, but Baldwin’s Up Late almost 2 months rondavous with the cable news network is up.
The show, “Up Late,” launched in October and featured Baldwin talking softly with various guests — ranging from politicians to actors.
But behind the scenes, there were clashes between staffers on the show and the anger-prone actor.
“Both sides seemed to not be able to work with each other,” an insider said.
“He told them he didn’t want to work on the show and they said well, we don’t want you working on it,” a source close to the situation said.
Baldwin has been fuming over how MSNBC suspended his program on the heels of his latest public outburst, while tensions between the actor and staffers on the show have been growing steadily since its October debut.
One meltdown at MSNBC allegedly included demands for a personal humidifier and his own makeup room because a woman he would have been sharing it with has cancer and a sensitivity to hairspray.
An insider blasted the allegation as “completely false and coming from someone who is now upset that their job is in jeopardy because the show is not continuing.”
Network officials put Baldwin on ice almost two weeks ago after he lashed out at photographer in Manhattan, allegedly calling him a “c–ksucking f-g.”
When the video of the incident went viral on TMZ, the actor then insisted he actually called the photographer a “c–ksucking fathead.”
Publicly, both sides are claiming the severing of ties was mutual.
“We are jointly confirming that ‘Up Late’ will not continue on MSNBC,” a rep for the actor told The News.
“This is a mutual parting, and we wish Alec all the best,” said a rep for the network.
