There’s a reason Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump impression works so well on Saturday Night Live. As in the past, the show has utilized the likes of Darrell Hammond and Taran Killam to spoof The Donald. But it wasn’t until Baldwin’s take on him did it promote the Presidential candidate to get ruffled by the show. Why now? Plenty of people out there have pulled a Trump impression over the year. It’s not like Baldwin has the mannerisms down better than others, in fact there people we could point to that have better ones. Rather the reason Baldwin gets to Trump is the fact probably more based on what SNL writers choose to spoof of him. They talk about his failures, more than over-elaborate his successes. So while making fun of The Donald for being too rich or landing too many pretty women, they rather spoof things like his scandals and lying. That played against Kate McKinnon’s decision to portray Hillary Clinton as socially awkward just works.
