“Hello everyone. It’s me, George Washington, who made America great the first time,” Alec Baldwin/Donald Trump/George Washington begins in a promo for Spike TV’s One Night Only Baldwin roast.
“I come to you this Independence Day with a special message. First, you’re welcome, for your amazing freedoms, all this tremendous democracy. I grabbed so much freedom from those British losers – when you’re president they let you do it.”
“I won our nation’s first election, fair and square. Complete landslide. Nobody thought I could win all 13 colonies but I did.”
Baldwin this week told CNN he will continue playing President Donald Trump on the upcoming season of NBC’s Saturday Night Live.
Spike TV’s One Night Only: Alec Baldwin taped at the Apollo Theater in Harlem on June 25. Previous honorees have included Eddie Murphy and Don Rickles. Bill Clinton makes a surprise appearance at Baldwin’s roast; previous roasters have included David Letterman, Jerry Seinfeld, Robert De Niro, Jon Stewart, and Martin Scorsese, among others.
