A Brief One from Doug Draper
Posted March 2nd, 2018 on Niagara At Large
When you’ve got Russia’s strongman, Vladimir Putin, bragging that he now has a new generation of nuclear missiles that can penetrate all defense systems and turn American cities into craters, and you are once again confronted with intelligence reports that Russia is hacking American elections, what do you do if you are supposed to be “the leader of the free world.”
Well, if you are Donald Trump, you get up at six o’clock in the morning and fire off a nasty tweet about actor/comedian Alec Baldwin and the way he portrays you on Saturday Night Live, of course!
No wonder, as Trump put it a few weeks back when he blew aside charges from his own Department of Justice that Russian nationals are interfering in U.S. elections, “they are laughing their asses off in Moscow.”
But the last laugh in this March 2nd’s Twitter war between Trump and Alec Baldwin, went to Baldwin. Here are the Tweets –
Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch. Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!
Baldwin’s Reply –
Agony though it may be, I’d like to hang in there for the impeachment hearings, the resignation speech, the farewell helicopter ride to Mara-A-Lago. You know. The Good Stuff. That we’ve all been waiting for.
I think there are millions of us around the world who are with you Alec.
The Good Stuff can’t come soon enough!
