The cover of Alec Baldwin’s upcoming parody book on President Trump is out, and it features the “Saturday Night Live” star doing his best pose as the commander in chief in a faux Oval Office.

The cover of “You Can’t Spell America Without Me” — Baldwin’s book with Spy magazine co-founder Kurt Andersen, written from Trump’s perspective — was revealed by Entertainment Weekly on Wednesday.

A description on publisher Penguin Press’s website dubs it “Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpIvanka Trump pens op-ed on kindergartners learning tech Bharara, Yates tamp down expectations Mueller will bring criminal charges Overnight Cybersecurity: Equifax security employee left after breach | Lawmakers float bill to reform warrantless surveillance | Intel leaders keeping collusion probe open MORE’s presidential memoir, as recorded by two world-renowned Trump scholars, and experts on greatness generally.”

The book, its publisher promises, takes readers into Trump’s “private encounters with world leaders, a few of whom he does not insult.”

“You are there at the genius Oval Office strategy sessions with his advisers. You are there in his White House bedroom as he crafts the pre-dawn Twitter pronouncements that rock the world. And, of course, you are there on the golf course as Trump attempts to manage the burdens of his office.”

An excerpt penned in Trump’s voice says: “People say if you want it done right you have to do it yourself, even when ‘it’ is a ‘memoir.’ So every word of this book was written by me, using a special advanced word processing system during the many, many nights I’ve been forced to stay alone in the White House — only me, just me, trust me, nobody helped. And it’s all 100 percent true, so true — people are already saying it may be the truest book ever published. Enjoy.”

The book is poised to hit store shelves on Nov. 7, almost exactly one year after Trump was elected.

Trump has called Baldwin’s recurring portrayal of him “sad,” saying the impression “just can’t get any worse.”
