Who should replace Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump on 'SNL'? | The Tylt
Alec Baldwin says he might soon step down from playing President Donald Trump on "Saturday Night Live." While fans are shocked, we are all wondering who could replace Baldwin. Leslie Jones warmed us up to the idea of her replacing Baldwin as Trump in a previous "SNL" skit. Jimmy Fallon also has a popular Trump impersonation on NBC's "The Tonight Show," and he could easily make his grand return on "SNL." Who do you think could replace Baldwin? 📺😂
Who should replace Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump on 'SNL'?
According to Extra, Baldwin said:
His policies aside, which you can hate, I thought he would have just relaxed. The maliciousness of this White House has people worried, which is why I’m not going to do it much longer, the impersonation. I don’t know how much more people can take it.
Leslie or Jimmy—who's the best choice to replace Baldwin?
Watch one of Baldwin's latest skits as Trump, and see how hard it will be to replace him.
Jones already alluded to replacing Baldwin in a skit, and fans have already taken to the idea of her impersonating Trump more often. What could piss off President Trump even more? Being impersonated by a Black female comedian.
And what could be more enraging to a man as sexist, racist, and TV-obsessed as Trump than being played by a black woman on television? (SNL’s staff will no doubt be pondering that very question on Monday morning, assuming they haven’t been shipped to Guantanamo by then.) So Leslie Jones stepped up to the plate and took on Trump’s hair and suit for a brief sketch about, well, her desire to play Donald Trump.
Watch Jones impersonate Trump, and see why this bold choice is a good one!
Fallon has already cemented his impersonation of Trump with the President's look, mannerism, voice and small hands. He's perfect to take on the role. Plus, he's a former "SNL" cast member—what better way to welcome him back? He's now the host of "The Tonight Show." Both NBC programs could collaborate and crossover moving forward.
Watch Fallon as Trump, and you'll see why he's the best alternative to Baldwin.
Fans say pick Jones to replace Baldwin.
I'm not happy with Alec Baldwin leaving SNL but as long as Leslie Jones gets to play trump I'll survive.— Andrew Seifert (@__Professor_S__) March 7, 2017
It would be a progressive move!
Fallon could easily replace Baldwin.
Jimmy Fallon and Alec Baldwin are hilarious impersonating Donald Trump. Fallon uses this little arm and very small hand looks like Trump's— Mark Williamson (@gnganinja) March 2, 2017
