"Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!"
Tweeted Donald Trump.
Unfunny? Judge for yourself:
We laughed a lot. Baldwin's impersonation of Trump certainly doesn't stink. Obviously, "SNL" is on the Clinton side politically, but why not laugh at yourself? And remember when Trump was on the show? That was last November, blogged here. They did a good job with him then, I think. But of course, back then, they probably didn't think he'd end up as the nominee... or they thought that if he was the nominee, Hillary would easily trounce him. Now, they must see the need to contribute to the effort to destroy him, and yet I thought the cold open (the embedded clip) was pretty gentle and mostly funny because it was silly — Trump looming in the background and moving around in the town hall debate.
