Baldwin on Trump ‘Saturday Night Live’ attacks: I wonder if this qualifies as ‘threat to my safety’

Actor Alec Baldwin on Sunday night asked if the latest attack President Trump lobbed against NBC and “Saturday Night Live” could be viewed as a “threat to my safety and that of my family.”

“I wonder if a sitting President exhorting his followers that my role in a TV comedy qualifies me as an enemy of the people constitutes a threat to my safety and that of my family?” Baldwin tweeted just hours after Trump accused the network of continually engaging “Republican hit jobs.”


Baldwin, who has impersonated Trump on “Saturday Night Live” throughout his presidency, mocked Trump’s national emergency declaration on the most recent showing of the program. 

Baldwin, acting as Trump, called the emergency to fund a wall along the southern border “fake.”

{mosads}“We have a tremendous amount of drugs flowing into the country from the southern border — or the brown line, as many people have asked me not to call it,” Baldwin said. “That’s why we need wall. Because wall works. Wall makes safe.”

Trump denounced the show on Sunday, and accused major networks of engaging in “collusion” against his presidency. 

“Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC!” Trump tweeted. “Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution?

“Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion!”

Trump declared a national emergency to divert $8 billion in funds from the military for the construction of a border wall last week.
