VIDEO: Is All Hollywood Out To Take Down Trump?
It's a bit of a fish-in-a-barrel at this stage, but Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump impression has wound up the president again to the extent that Trump has wondered aloud whether there isn't some kind of "retribution" which could be meted out to these awful, awful people. "You all see why I gotta fake this emergency, right? I have to because I want to," Baldwin's Trump said. "It’s really simple. We have a problem. Drugs are coming into this country through no wall. Walls work, walls make us safe. You don’t have to be smart to understand that - in fact it’s even easier to understand if you’re not that smart."
In fact, Trump has a massive problem with comedians per se. He mourned the death of Robin Williams in 2014, and noted that he was "one of the only comedians to make me laugh" - that's despite Williams describing Trump as "a man who plays Monopoly with real buildings... a scary man" and comparing his ownership of beauty pageants to American footballer and convicted animal abuser and dogfight-organiser Michael Vick owning pet stores in a 2012 stand-up routine - but generally he is a fan.
