Uber-liberal thespian Alec Baldwin is experiencing a comeback of sorts with his stardom as Saturday Night Live’s satirical President Trump.
Yet his political activism has been no secret for decades.
And now he’s taking advantage of that stardom in what looks to be the groundwork for a future campaign.
With the caveat that he’s not quite ready for a White House run just yet, he emphatically stated: “I would be a good president.”
Later this month he’s slated as the keynote to the Iowa Democrat Fall Gala, which looks an awful lot like a budding exploratory effort.
Meanwhile, some supporters are pushing him to run for mayor of NYC.
If you thought candidate Donald Trump had baggage, Alec Baldwin is the bellhop for Hollywood’s moral vacuousness.
Here’s more from PJ Media…
Actor and political activist Alec Baldwin, who plays President Trump on Saturday Night Live, said tonight that he wants to run for public office and that he would make a “good president.”
Baldwin and Kurt Andersen released their political satire, You Can’t Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story of My Fantastic First Year as President Donald J. Trump, a week ago.
During a discussion at George Washington University about the new book, Baldwin was directly asked if he would run for president in 2020 against Trump.
“I got married again. I love my wife more than anything. We have three little kids and another one coming. To run for office is something that I want to do but it a) doesn’t seem to be practical with my lifestyle now with my children, and No. 2, I’m not quite sure that Trump has left it open for non-traditional candidates to move, but really, the pendulum might swing the other way and people are going to want people with real, bonafide credentials as the head of state house, a governor,” Baldwin said.
“I don’t know if people post-Trump will want someone again who has never held elected office. I mean, I care. Do I think I would be a good president? Yeah, I think I would be a good president. I really think I would. No. 1, I would enjoy it. I would be, ‘Get me a chocolate cake from the hotel. I’m so depressed.’ That wouldn’t be me at all. I would enjoy that window on the world, you know, and try to get things done,” he added.
