Alec Baldwin impersonates Donald Trump at anti-Trump rally in NYC
Live, from New York, it’s. . . Thursday night?
Alec Baldwin, known for his impersonations of President-elect Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live,” rallied a crowd in New York City on the eve of the inauguration, including an impression of Trump needing to use the bathroom.
“I just want to say,” Baldwin said in his best Trump voice, “I’ve been standing out here in the freezing cold for a long time. I have to go to the bathroom, I have to pee, but I’m holding it in. . . I’m going to a function at the Russian consulate tonight, I’m going to hold it until I get there. . . and then when I get to the Russian consulate I’m going to have a really, really long pee, like the biggest pee I’ve ever had in my lifetime.”
Snapping back into his regular speaking voice, Baldwin railed against the president-elect and his incoming administration.
“These people are a disgrace,” Baldwin said, specifically naming Steve Bannon and Mike Pence as well as Trump. “They are a disgrace to everything you and I believe in.”
Baldwin also said that Americans want “full transparency of their government, and we’ve never been further away from that than we are now.”
He also implored the crowd to spread the word about the IDNYC program, which provides free identification card for all New York City residents. A city website says the identification card helps “the most vulnerable communities,” including undocumented immigrants.
Hundreds gathered at the “We Stand United” rally outside the Trump International Hotel and Tower near Central Park. Other celebrities made remarks at the event, including Michael Moore, Robert DeNiro, and Sally Field.
