This news is so big that, dare we say… it’s bigly.
Alec Baldwin’s outlandish impersonation of President Donald Trump has been pretty much universally praised even to the point where he says he’s being treated like he “cured polio.”
“I want to be very clear. I don’t feel that way,” the actor told HuffPost at the “Stand For Rights” event to raise awareness for the American Civil Liberties Union earlier this year. “But people will walk up to me — I can’t get over how effusive they are. ‘Thank you!’ Every age, every shape, size.”
Now, it turns out that his wildly popular impression is even better than we all thought.
In a Wired video posted this week, dialect coach Erik Singer, who’s analyzed actors’ accents for the news outlet in viral videos before, took a look at Baldwin’s Trump portrayal. Apparently, Baldwin gets a lot of intricate things right.
