This Is Yuge: Alec Baldwin to Write Satirical Book About None Other Than Donald Trump
'You Can't Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story of My Fantastic First Year as President Donald J. Trump' will be published by Penguin Press. For real.
Alec Baldwin's on point performance as Donald Trump has been tremendous on the last two seasons of SNL. In his time so accurately mimicking Trump, Baldwin has amassed a polluted sea of knowledge on the former reality TV star. Naturally, then, he intends to put it to good use with a book.
A book, you say? Does Baldwin have the inside scoop? Does he know how Trump ticks (shivers)? Unlikely, considering a mere two percent of society are narcissists. Instead, Baldwin will be doing what he does best — satirizing an already ridiculous presidency.
According to Rolling Stone, the actor will partner with Kurt Andersen on a special new project, a book entitled You Can't Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story of My Fantastic First Year as President Donald J. Trump. Penguin Press made the announcement Wednesday.
Yes, this is real. As a matter of fact, fans can expect to hear Baldwin narrate the audiobook as the Trump we've come to know on SNL.
Election seasons are always a boon for sketch shows like SNL, which can add levity to even the most dire of situations. According to Variety, the show's viewership is up 22 percent for the '15-16 season compared to previous years, its highest ratings in more than two decades.
Expect Baldwin's Trump book to release November 7, 2017.
What a time to be alive.
