Alec Baldwin, who played Lamont Cranston aka The Shadow in the 1994 film, is no stranger to taking on President Trump. He routinely impersonates the President on Saturday Night Live, a move that has appeared to revive his career. His most recent attack on the President is to call him “lazy, corrupt, neurologically impaired.”
Baldwin recently took to Twitter, where he wrote, “Trump is lazy, corrupt, neurologically impaired. But he must also be quite confused.”
Trump is lazy, corrupt, neurologically impaired. But he must also be quite confused.
He believes the world is, or should be, like the set of The Apprentice, where he is paid handsomely 4 doing very little. And that all of his hatred/bad behavior will be shelved by Mark Burnett.

Trump has drawn ire from Baldwin over the years. Just last month the actor claimed that the President insinuated that he was going to use violence against his political opposition. Baldwin stated, “Trump’s goons are gonna beat the s*** out of you”.

The comment came after President Trump spoke with Breitbart News where he remarked:
“You know, the left plays a tougher game, it’s very funny. I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don’t play it tougher. Okay?”
President Trump would add:
“I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad. But the left plays it cuter and tougher.”
Following his attacks on President Trump, Baldwin would float the idea of running for President asking, “If I ran for President, would you vote for me?” He would add, “Beating Trump would be so easy. So Easy.”
If I ran for President, would you vote for me?
I won’t ask you for any $.
And I promise I will win.
Beating Trump would be so easy.

Baldwin has floated the idea of running for the President before. Last year, when speaking with Howard Stern, he stated, “if I ran, I would win.” The actor was one thousand percent sure that if he ran he could win the high seat.
You can see the clip below:
Baldwin’s been stirring the pot of late. He recently faced criticism from his own brother Stephen Baldwin, who described his brother’s actions as the “spirit of hate.” Stephen Baldwin’s criticism came after Alec Baldwin signed onto Alyssa Milano’s letter calling for Hollywood to boycott the state of Georgia over a pro-life heartbeat bill.
What do you think of Alec Baldwin’s hot take on President Trump’s mental state? And if he in fact ran, do you believe that the actor could pull of a successful bid for the White House? Let me know!
