Alec Baldwin’s brother slams Mike Huckabee for panning SNL Trump role

Steven Adams
“Saturday Night Live” on March 30, 2019 featured a cold open with Robert DeNiro as special counsel Robert Mueller III, Alec Baldwin as President Donald Trump, Aidy Bryant as William Barr and Kate McKinnon as Rudy Giuliani.

Mike Huckabee started it. Billy Baldwin escalated it.

Former Arkansas governor Huckabee tried promoting his own television show by referencing Alec Baldwin’s statement that he is “so done” playing President Donald Trump on SNL. Huckabee tweeted “Good news for viewers who are “so done” with “SNL” & unfunny vicious Trump bashing instead of comedy.”

He continued with, “For refreshing variety, try my show instead tonight!”

Huckabee has a slot on the televagelist channel Trinity Broadcasting Network.

Alec’s brother, Billy, made it personal by attacking Huckabee’s family and his faith.

Huckabee’s daughter is White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Alec Baldwin has been portraying Trump on the late-night comedy series since 2016.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
