Chevy Chase Says Trump is ‘Hurting Our Country’

Chevy Chase called President Donald Trump an “ass” and said Friday he is “hurting our country.”

During an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, the 73-year-old actor praised Alec Baldwin for his “accurate” impersonation of Trump and said that “Saturday Night Live” was trying to make Trump “look like an ass.”

“That is exactly what Lorne [Michaels] is trying to do, make him look like an ass because he is one, for God sake,” Chase said. “He’s an ass, and he is looking like an ass and hurting our country.”

“Trump’s a tough guy to spoof,” he added. “Now, I am not trying to compare Alec and myself — there is no comparison, I am much better looking–but the way I dealt with it was make no attempt to look anything or sound anything like Gerald Ford. I just wrote the stuff that was funny and then would be clumsy when it was the right time.”
