Alec Baldwin 'Overjoyed' He's Going To Be Out Of A Job At SNL

The actor has been portraying Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live for years.

Alec Baldwin might be out of a job soon, and he couldn’t be happier about it.

The actor, who has played Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live for a number of years, was among the stars celebrating the president’s election loss over the weekend.

“I don’t believe I’ve ever been this overjoyed to lose a job before!” read a post on the Twitter account for the Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation.

This weekend’s episode of SNL aired just hours after the election was called for Democrat Joe Biden, and saw Baldwin making what could be one of his final appearances ― although he stayed true to his character by saying that he wouldn’t go easily.

“I was re-elected president of the United States,” Baldwin’s version of Trump announced. “But, of course, they are trying to steal the election away from me.”

“I’m not going to say goodbye, America,” he concluded, after a melancholic piano rendition of Macho Man, echoing Kate McKinnon’s Hallelujah performance four years earlier. “I’m just going to say, ‘See you in court!’”
