    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.

    Baldwin called on comedian Kathy Griffin to ignore President Trump's criticism of a photo she took holding up a decapitated head of the president. [Snip] "Trump is such a senile idiot, all he has is Twitter fights," Baldwin tweeted.

Baldwin's comments were how Hyde and other lawmakers were voting to impeach former President Bill Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

    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. …

    Actor Alec Baldwin has cheekily offered to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration in January as the president-elect reportedly struggles to secure artists for the ceremony. Baldwin, who parodies Mr Trump on Saturday Night Live, tweeted to Mr Trump yesterday with an offer to sing AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell”. The pair have frequently clashed on Twitter over Baldwin’s impersonation of Mr Trump. The president-elect has dismissed the long-running comedy program as “sad” and “totally one-sided” on Twitter. The crew at Saturday Night Live took another dig at Donald Trump, this time having a shirtless Vladimir Putin surprise the President-elect for Christmas....

Baldwin added: "I'm not an impressionist, per se, but if you do any kind of comedy and they ask you to do that, most of the time, there's some degree of appreciation, I think, involving somebody you like. Trump is somebody who, I don't hate Trump, but he's not somebody I admire, so it was more difficult." Us Weekly reached out to NBC, which had no comment.

    The actor, starring in the new movie “God’s Club,” shared why he thinks Trump is the best candidate in “The Church Boys” podcast on The Blaze TV this week. “I like Donald Trump because — I said this to Don Lemon on CNN a week before the first Republican national debate — I said, ‘I like Donald Trump as a man, I like Donald Trump potentially as a president, because he doesn’t care what you think,'” Baldwin said. Appearing, and being “fired” twice, on “Celebrity Apprentice” gave Baldwin a personal perspective of the GOP front-runner as someone who does not...

    MADISON, Wisconsin — As the nation celebrates its veterans and pays tribute to their sacrifices, it’s important to remember the promise made to America’s protectors has too often been broken. The headlines over the past few years in particular have screamed of neglect, ill-treatment and other abuses of too many veterans. That broken faith was no more apparent than in Wisconsin, at the Tomah Veterans Affairs Medical Center. While federal lawmakers have conducted a series of investigations into widespread over-prescription of opiates that led to the death of a 35-year-old Marine veteran at the facility and have pledged changes to...
