Actor Alec Baldwin and Trump archenemy has come up with a new way of mocking the President-elect. He has posted a selfie where he is wearing a baseball cap with “make America great again” written in Russian.
All throughout the Trump campaign, Baldwin was there to ridicule him as much as possible. Now with his inauguration approaching, Baldwin has struck again.
The cap is a clear reference to the conflict between Trump and the U.S Intelligence agencies. According to Mashable, the literal translation is “make America cool again.”
The selfie emerged shortly after U.S Intelligence agencies accused Vladimir Putin of undermining Hilary Clinton’s bid to become president of the U.S.
Baldwin and Trump’s disdain for one another is obvious. In response to Baldwin’s impression of him on Saturday Night Live, Trump tweeted, “Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me,” Trump tweeted. “Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!”
In another sketch Mr Putin was a surprise guest at Trump’s house over Christmas, arriving via the chimney.
Trump has recently tweeted he would like to have good relations with Russia. It read that “having a good relationship with Russia would be a good thing, not a bad thing,” and that only “stupid people” would believe the opposite.”
Baldwin isn’t the only famous face to ridicule the president-elect. Mark Hamil, known for playing Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, and The Joker in the 1990s show Batman: The animated series, read out Trumps New Year’s Eve message in character as The Joker.
Trump wrote, “Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don’t know what to do. Love!”
The recording had an eerie tone and the passive aggressive nature of the tweet made it well suited to The Joker.
