Trump’s Not Going To Like This: Alec Baldwin Is Returning To ‘SNL’

Alec Baldwin has ended months of speculation on the future of his role as President Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, telling CNN on Monday that he would return to the show next season.

Yeah, were going to fit that in, Baldwin told the network. I think people have enjoyed it.

Baldwin suggested previously he might not be part of the shows upcoming 43rd season.

I dont quite know if people want to continue with that, he said in March.If everything stays the same in the country as it is now, I dont think people will be in the mood to laugh about it come September.

However, CNN reported Baldwin would indeed return to the role, although his busy schedule will limit the number of appearances. The news network quoted him as saying viewers would geta couple celery sticks rather than a whole meal.

That may come as unwelcome news to at least one high-profile SNL viewer: Trump himself, who has complained on Twitter about what he called anunwatchable show.

Viewers disagreed. Baldwins impersonation of Trump, as well as other mid-season surprises such as Melissa McCarthys recurring role as White House press secretarySean Spicer, helped to propel SNL to some of its best ratings in years.

Theres even talk that Baldwin could win an Emmyfor his performances as the president.

The shows new season begins in fall. An air date for the premiere has not been announced.
