Baldwin On Trump: "We Can't Be Mean Enough To This Guy"

While humor directed at the President of the United States is incredibly common, it’s taken a decidedly different turn in the age of President Donald Trump. It’s no secret that the vast majority of the entertainment industry is in opposition to Trump, and that’s led to a ton of unloading on the commander-in-chief.

It’s gotten to the point that there are actually questions swirling around as to whether or not some of the humor is crossing the line. As the Daily Mail shares, the man that delivers a spot-on impression of the commander-in-chief certainly doesn’t think so.

During an appearance at George Washington University, Alec Baldwin noted that Trump deserves as much mockery as possible.

“We can't be mean enough to this guy,” he said.

When Trump was elected, Baldwin says that he tried to be optimistic, but he soon realized that he shouldn’t be.

“I really expected him to change. I thought he would take a deep breath and say, 'I'm the president now,' and begin to focus on, not only the power and the prestige and all of those kinds of tactile but more common perks and benefits of being president,” Baldwin said.

From Baldwin’s perspective, Trump is simply not doing his office justice.

“The president of the United States, beyond anyone alive, maybe more than anyone alive in the world, has the view of humanity that you could never get somewhere else. When you step out as president, you meet the best and the brightest around the world,” Baldwin added.

He continues, “You see real human suffering and people who are trying to heal that suffering. You come home and you meet the creme de la creme of the arts, letters, academia, politics, all you do is shake hands and go to dinners and have photo-ops with the greatest Americans alive or the neediest Americans alive.”

Based on that, Baldwin was hopeful that the gravity of things would sink in for Trump, but he doesn’t see that they have.

“And I thought to myself, my God, he would finally come to his senses and say 'what a tremendous opportunity this is for me as a human being,'" Baldwin continued. “Forget about it.”

It’s no secret that Baldwin is no fan of Trump, and he’s certainly entitled to his opinions. That said, it takes more than Trump to create a sense of divisiveness. Has he helped bring folks closer together?

Not necessarily, but there’s also such an inherent negativity directed at him that he’s damned if he does, and damned if he doesn’t. It’s not fair for anyone to exist under those standards, and that’s helping to lead to the hostile environment that we all have to deal with.

Trump can certainly take the lead and tone down the rhetoric at times, but critics can also put down the microscopes and stop looking to dissect anything related to Trump as the latest evidence that the sky is going to fall.

If both of those things happen, maybe we can get back to the days when everyone can enjoy comedic stylings together and without feeling alienated because of their personal beliefs.
