Bummed Alec Baldwin dishes on SNL and NBC execs election conflict: ‘SNL tell people who to vote for?’

Alec Baldwin, who played the character of Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live prior to the election, said the sketch comedy show wanted to endorse a candidate but was stopped by NBC executives.

Baldwin, a staunch Democrat, made the statement in response to TV critic Daniel D’Addario taking on SNL in a series of tweets for, what he called, its lack of courage.

In order to prove the show had courage, Baldwin replied by saying they were going to endorse a candidate.

They were going to, but they didn’t have the courage to stand up to network execs . . . who pay their salaries?

Baldwin stopped playing Trump on SNL after the election and has no plans to return to the role.
