Frequent Donald Trump-hater Alec Baldwin decided to target White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders over the weekend, going so far as to call her a “mouthpiece for fascism,” but it didn’t end well for him.
It all started when Baldwin told USA Today that he is “so done” with portraying Trump on the NBC television show “Saturday Night Live.”
“They should find somebody who wants to do it. I feel like I’m done with that now. I’m so done with that,” Baldwin said. “I really don’t have a lot invested in my Trump impersonation, so please find someone and convince Lorne [Michaels] to replace me. I’m completely down with that. Winning the Emmy for that show aside, it was not some career goal of mine.”
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee immediately took to Twitter to celebrate the news, expressing joy that we will no longer need to watch Baldwin’s offensive portrayal of the president.
“Alec Baldwin announced that he’s ‘so done’ playing @realDonaldTrump on ‘Saturday Night Live,’” Huckabee tweeted. “Good news for viewers who are ‘so done’ with ‘SNL’ & unfunny vicious Trump bashing instead of comedy. For refreshing variety, try my show instead tonight!”
This simple statement “triggered” Baldwin, who is clearly so much of a snowflake that he can’t take even the slightest criticism despite constantly throwing out attacks on conservatives himself. In responding to Huckabee, Baldwin decided to go after his daughter Sanders, who has worked in the Trump White House for years now.
Who knows what the future holds?” Baldwin wrote. “I tell what it should hold. That you, who have sucked a govt paycheck out of the economy while you were a dreadful Lt gov and then gov and that daughter of yours, a mouthpiece for fascism, that you go away. Just…go away.”
However, this move immediately came back to bite Baldwin, as social media users pointed out that he had no business going after a “strong woman” like Sanders.
“Another pathetic liberal man attacking a strong woman. Where is #NOW on this one? Where are the feminists? #Hypocrites,” one user tweeted.
Others called out Baldwin for being ignorant as to what fascism really means.
“It’s a waste of time to argue with the uneducated,” one person wrote. “They obviously don’t know what fascism means or they wouldn’t continue to practice it themselves.”
Still others stated that Sanders is far too busy doing important work in the White House to care what a crazed liberal celebrity like Baldwin thinks about her anyways.
“Hey Alec? Why don’t you worry about being clean and sober!!!” a Twitter user wrote. “You and Pelosi need to hook up!!! Also you think Sara Sanders cares what you have to say about her? …Boy Bye!! Umm.. No.”
It’s safe to say that Baldwin will think twice before he messes with Sanders again!
