    Actor Alec Baldwin has issued a political video for the Mic news site, urging supporters to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of possible Russian collusion in the 2016 election. Baldwin, who frequently parodies President Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, did the video for Mic, a liberal web site, which billed it as “opinion. In the video, Baldwin claims the Mueller investigation is under fire and touts activism as the cure to stop it from being shut down. “We need your help to stop Trump,” says one of the images. In the video, Baldwin claims, “There is mounting evidence...

    Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) is among the crop of Democrats suddenly sparking outrage over the condition of immigration detention centers at the U.S.-Mexico border. Images of children placed in cages have been going viral. The problem is, the conditions are largely the same as they had been under President Obama. In fact, some of the photos being circulated look eerily similar to those taken in 2014. Baldwin was going on about the Trump White House's terrible policy on CNN, until Brooke Baldwin asked the senator if she was just as outraged during the Obama years. Not exactly, but she did...

    This week actor Robert De Niro wowed the audience at the annual Tony Awards with what many are characterizing as “the most powerful, elegant, and irrefutable argument against the Trump agenda ever uttered by anyone.” De Niro’s brief message consisted of two simple words: “F*ck Trump.” The audience gave him a standing ovation. Tom Perez, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee called De Niro’s statement “simple, but remarkably brilliant. I don’t know why no one else thought of it before now. If we had used this insight back in the 2016 campaign the horrible outcome could’ve been averted. All is...

    The 2020 presidential race might just be a face-off between Donald Trump and the man who plays him on TV. Alec Baldwin — who has portrayed POTUS on Saturday Night Live since 2016 — said in an interview with Howard Stern on Monday that if he ran for president, he could unseat Trump. In the interview embedded above, Baldwin and Stern’s conversation turns to the 2020 election, and Baldwin admits that he “can only think of a couple people who I think could beat Trump.” “I’ve got a name for you: Alec Baldwin,” Stern replies, prompting Baldwin to say, “If...

    A few days ago, Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin was hoping he wouldn’t be in a position anytime soon to be asked a question about the national anthem and a statement by president Donald Trump that would result in a headline-making comment. Baldwin, like many of his NFL-playing counterparts, thought the issue of players making protests during the anthem was receding and the focus turning to the league acting in concert with players to address their concerns that led to the protests in the first place.

    If Tina Fey can do it, why not her 30 Rock co-star Alec Baldwin? And if their SNL commander-in-chief can honcho her Broadway show, why not his as well? Those were the questions raised Monday when Baldwin told Howard Stern he has Broadway in his sights for a solo show based on his Emmy-winning impersonation of Donald J, Trump, with Lorne Michaels producing. Michaels is also producing Fey’s musical adaptation of Mean Girls, slated to arrive on Broadway in the spring. Baldwin was interviewed on Stern’s Sirius XM program to promote You Can’t Spell America Without Me, his new book,...

    MARSHFIELD -- The Wisconsin man who blew the whistle on political campaigning by postal workers says U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin's office never responded to his concerns, an accusation Baldwin's office denies. Timm Kopp, a letter carrier from Marshfield, grew concerned that postal workers were allowed to take time off work to campaign for their unions' preferred Democratic Party candidates, causing staff shortages. A federal investigation found the U.S. Postal Service had violated a federal law, and the agency has promised changes.

    Alec Baldwin does a pretty convincing Donald Trump impersonation — just ask a newspaper in the Dominican Republic. El Nacional published an apology on Saturday after mistakenly running a photo of the actor doing his impression of the U.S. president on “Saturday Night Live” instead of Trump himself. Accompanying an article in its Friday edition headlined in Spanish: “Trump says settlements in Israel don’t favor peace,” a photo of a scowling Baldwin in a blond wig appears next to a photo of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. …
