In advance of Spike’s tribute to him, Alec Baldwin roasted himself a bit in the above meta-spot in which Baldwin takes on his Donald Trump persona to appear as George Washington.
“Hello, everyone it’s me, George Washington, the guy who made America great the first time,” he says.
“I won our nation’s first election fair and square, complete landslide. Nobody thought I could win all 13 colonies but I did.”
“I created this terrific, incredible country for everybody, even the haters and the losers like Alec Baldwin, so they can have the freedom to insult the president.”
Spike’s One Night Only featuring Alec Baldwin aired Sunday, July 9 at 9/8 c and featured the actors friends and co-stars.
