Alec Baldwin Is Co-Writing A Satirical Book About Donald Trump
If you're among the millions who look forward to Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump impersonations on Saturday Night Live each week, you're going to love this. Alec Baldwin just went full Trump with a new book, titled You Can't Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story of My Fantastic First Year as President Donald J. Trump. Baldwin will co-write his Trump book with Reset author and Studio 360 host Kurt Andersen.
Baldwin began impersonating Trump on the weekly sketch-comedy show in October 2016, taking over for frequent SNL-Trump Darrell Hammond. Following the general election, Baldwin said he planned to continue satirizing the notoriously thin-skinned Trump "as much as I can."
Regarding his book-writing partnership with Andersen, Baldwin tells The New York Times that "it’s fair to say that Kurt will do most of the writing," adding: "We have that arrangement whereby he doesn’t put on the wig, I don’t open up a Word document." Baldwin will narrate the audio version of his upcoming book in his Donald Trump persona.
You Can't Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story of My Fantastic First Year as President Donald J. Trump is currently slated for release in November 2017 from Penguin Press.
