Alec Baldwin might end up moving to Ireland if President Trump ever decides to take revenge on him.
The Irish American’s portrayals of the 45th President on Saturday Night Live have earned him both global plaudits and the ire of his Commander-in-Chief.
“I’m being asked if I’m worried about a tax audit. I’m not,” he assured an Irish interviewer.
“Am I planning on leaving the country? Should I be? Do I need to leave?
“I’m not planning on it, but if it comes to that, I have a couple of ideas where. Maybe Ireland might make a nice change of scenery.
“Would you harbour me? I’ve got Irish blood in me somewhere, that’s where I get my winning sense of humour.
“Maybe that’s enough to get a[n Irish] passport and hide out from all these apparent threats.”
The 58 year old grew up in Massapequa, a very Irish suburb of New York City and wears his heritage as a bad of honor, previously using it to tweet opposition to President Trump’s proposed Muslim registry.
when I travel back to the US, I hope they have a box for me to check that reads "Muslim Irish Catholic."— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) January 29, 2017
But it’s his activities on screen that have really enraged the President. Only a few weeks ago, the most powerful person on earth declared, “I think the Alec Baldwin situation is not good,” and that he thought his performance “ridiculous” and that he was “disappointed” in his fellow New Yorker. Usually the President prefers to tweet his disapproval about the show.
.@NBCNews is bad but Saturday Night Live is the worst of NBC. Not funny, cast is terrible, always a complete hit job. Really bad television!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 15, 2017
Just tried watching Saturday Night Live - unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can't get any worse. Sad— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 4, 2016
And Baldwin has not been afraid to hold back.
When African Americans felt abused/neglected, they turned to ppl like John Lewis, Julian Bond and MLK for leadership. MCW's chose Trump...— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) January 15, 2017
