Alec Baldwin should play himself in ‘SNL’ sketch about wife’s heritage controversy: Trump Jr.


#Donald #Trump #Jr #Wednesday suggested actor #Alec #Baldwin play himself in a “#Saturday #Night #Live” sketch about his wife #Hilaria’s scandal over her heritage.

“#Alec #Baldwin should play #Alec #Baldwin when SNL parodies his wife pretending she’s #Spanish for the last few decades as opposed to the basic white girl from #Mass that she actually is,” the president’s son tweeted. “#It would be the first funny thing #Saturday #Night #Live has produced in years.”

#Baldwin, 62, has played #President #Trump since before he took office in an impression the president called “mean-spirited and not very funny.”

#Hilaria #Baldwin, 36, received a backlash on social media this week for implying she is from #Spain in the past and for using a #Spanish accent in the past when she was born in #Massachusetts.

WOMAN WHO SPARKED HILARIA BALDWIN SCANDAL SAYS SHE’S ‘SCARED’ ALEC BALDWIN MAY ‘PUNCH’ HER

A since-deleted tweet that sparked the controversy read: “#You have to admire #Hilaria #Baldwin’s commitment to her decade long grift where she impersonates a #Spanish person.”

#Comedian #Joe #Piscopo, who was an “SNL” cast member in the 1980s, agreed with #Trump #Jr, telling #Fox #News, “#We get offended too easily. #Why she did it? I don’t know. I think that’s subject for a sketch on ‘SNL,’ I’m just saying.”

There has been no indication that the show will cover the topic, and many say that producers won’t touch the topic due to #Alec #Baldwin’s ties to the show.

#Hilaria #Baldwin called the backlash “surreal,” telling The #New #York #Times, “There is not something I’m doing wrong, and I think there is a difference between hiding and creating a boundary.”

JOE PISCOPO ‘LOVES EVERY BIT’ OF HILARIA BALDWIN STORY REGARDING SPANISH CULTURAL APPROPRIATION CLAIMS

#Hilaria was born as #Hillary but told the newspaper family members have called her #Hilaria most of her life.

#In defense of his wife, #Alec #Baldwin shared a #Mark #Twain quote on his #Instagram #Tuesday that read: “A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”

#In an #April podcast interview, #Hilaria #Baldwin said, “I moved here [to America] when I was 19 to go to NYU from… my family lives in #Spain, they live in #Mallorca.”

The bilingual mother of five’s accent has also noticeably fluctuated over the years when she made appearances on TV and in a 2015 clip from “#Today,” she apparently forgot the #English word for “cucumber.”

#Meanwhile, her CAA speaker page, #Wikipedia and IMDB page all previously listed her birth country as #Spain. The talent agency has since removed any mention of her birthplace, while the latter two have made corrections. #Speaking in her latest interview, #Baldwin blames false reporting and says she has never actively misrepresented her heritage.

#She says she is bilingual and often speaks in various different accents depending on her mood. #She also noted she doesn’t read articles about herself and was unaware that her ethnicity was being incorrectly reported.

#As for the “cucumber” moment, she says that she was simply nervous to be on live TV and had a “brain fart.”
