In Alec Baldwin’s president parody, Trump is 'head writer'

Clip: 11/09/2017 | 5m 59s

Alec Baldwin first played then-candidate Donald Trump in October 2016 and assumed the parody would last until the election, but the actor continues to be a recurring guest on Saturday Night Live and an outspoken critic of the president. Baldwin sits down with Jeffrey Brown to discuss his book, “You Can’t Spell America Without Me,” a memoir in which he takes on Trump’s voice in a different way.
