There is another candidate running against Donald Trump. That is no surprise, now that the number of presidential wannabes has reached 720 — okay the number is just 17. Still, that is substantially more than in previous years. Plus, there are more people out there waiting in the wings just for a chance to run right down to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW and hop in Lincoln’s bed. Yet, this last alleged candidate has something very special that no one else can offer.
Donald Trump does not appear to have a sense of humor, except with Russians in the Oval Office for some strange reason. Some of the best humor is self-depreciating, but POTUS is only into self-aggrandizing. No wonder Alec Baldwin won an Emmy Award in 2017 for his take on the president of these United States during SNL’s (Saturday Night Live) cold opens. Baldwin had to work on material where the man in question is already a joke and make him more so — no small task. Check out Baldwin’s last tweet to his million plus Twitter followers:
‘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. So easy. So easy.’
Baldwin has a few things against him. He would only be 62-years-old should he win the 2020 presidential election as opposed to Trump’s 74 years on earth. On the other hand, since POTUS has the eery ability to make himself an inch taller during his yearly physical, maybe he can make himself a decade younger?
We know that Baldwin has been toying with a presidential run before. Funny, that is what Trump did, too, before he ran in 2016. The actor appeared on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show and said:
If I ran, I would win. I would absolutely win. (My run would be) the funniest, most exciting, most crazy campaign.’
Trump does not find Baldwin’s imitation of him at all amusing. He cannot laugh at himself, he cannot even laugh at other people laugh at him. Last year, the commander-in-chief tweeted:
‘(Baldwin’s) dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation.’
A person might think that if Baldwin’s impersonation was so terribly “terrible,” it would not have saved his “dying mediocre career.” Maybe, POTUS secretly believes the actor’s impersonation is really good. Then, Trump would be running against a younger Trump, and he is certain no one could beat that.
