Anti-Trump actor Alec Baldwin, who portrays the president on “Saturday Night Live” claims that black people like him more since he started playing the president.
According to Page Six:
Alec Baldwin believes he’s expanded his fanbase since playing Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live.”
“I don’t know how to say this and I don’t want to get it wrong either, because everything is a minefield of bombs going off, but ever since I played Trump, black people love me. They love me,” Baldwin, 60, told The Hollywood Reporter.
“Everywhere I go, black people go crazy. I think it’s because they’re most afraid of Trump. I’m not going to paint every African-American person with the same brush, but a significant number of them are sitting there going, ‘This is going to be bad for black folks.’”
Baldwin previously said portraying the POTUS was “agony,” but says he’ll be back for future episodes of “SNL” anyway.
Baldwin went on to talk about the claims of sexual misconduct against him while claiming that it was nothing but false accusations.
