Actor/activist/Trump impersonator Alec Baldwin declared in social media over the weekend that President Trump is “punishment for slavery” and a host of other purported American “sins.”
“Trump is a curse, brought down on us as punishment 4 our sins,” tweeted Baldwin, who frequently spoofs Trump on Saturday Night Live. “The slaughter of Native Americans, slavery, Japanese internment, Vietnam. Every hateful, misogynistic, racist notion, intertwined w our better nature, Trump embodies those. He is us. Now we can face it + exorcise it,” he wrote.
“[O]nce Trump is gone,” he added, “[t]he period of healing for us will be long + will require our best.”
