1. Alec made more sense than Trump did.

6. So does pretty much everybody!

Though I thought that Alec Baldwin came off as more "normal" than he usually does as Trump. I'm guessing that he was concentrating on the bizarre new voice patterns...

2. I hope everyone caught on

to the way Alec mimicked the rising voice inflections 45 used in that news conference. That was crazy. Trump is only getting worse.

3. I noticed immediately - good touch!

Trump is such a worldwide embarrassment that it boggles the mind!

4. Yes. We keep forgetting that: we get caught up in fighting for our constitution, and

forget that the world is bent over backwards laughing at him.

5. It really does boggle the mind that this has gone on for so long

And just gets worse every day. We see it, the rest of the world sees it - so how bad does it have to get??

7. How bad did it have to get with

Hitler or Mussolini?

(I hate to make those comparisons).

How bad does it have to get with Kim in North Korea?

What do we have to do? How cowardly are we?

8. Isn't it up to Congress to step in? I thought that was their responsibility...

I just saw Lindsey Graham on MSNBC and I had to change the channel. I kept wondering what John McCain would think...

9. Does the entire fate of the free world depend on Pelosi and Schumer?


What can we do to help them?

The fate of the world depended on FDR, then on Truman.

Are we that good? Do we have leadership that is their equal?

10. I'm grateful every day for Nancy Pelosi

I can't imagine where we'd be without her! And I'm proud of Chuck Schumer, as well - he's my senator and I keep meaning to call him just to encourage and support him. I've only called him once before and I realize that's important now - they probably get plenty of calls of complaint, so we should call when we're proud of them, too...

11. You are right.

I need to call Durbin and Duckworth to encourage them.

I have attended their events and town halls, but I need to do more.

13. I feel somewhat conflicted about my other senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, now

She was also my congresswoman and was very popular here - in a traditionally Republican district. There were elections when the party didn't even bother to field a candidate until 2006 when she managed to defeat a Republican who had been in office for years. And it was Hillary Clinton who advised her when to run - and President Clinton came to the district to campaign for her. I was there - along with half of the district - and he is a truly charismatic speaker. I credit his efforts with her win. So it's not just the Al Franken episode that I have conflicts about - she also said President Clinton should have stepped down when she probably wouldn't have been in office without him. So I guess I'll just call Schumer.

"...and my personal hell of playing president will finally be over."

17. Alec Baldwin as Trump was a gift to the country.

No one has had a more successful run or been better at impersonating a President than him. He's a wonderful actor.

I'd like to go back and find the first time he did it. I guess it was during the campaign?

22. Good one! Any public figure - let alone a president - is "fair game," what did he expect??

Johnny Carson and the Smothers Brothers made jokes about politicians - didn't he ever watch TV??

21. I watched this again trying to figure out what triggered Trump so much for

him to freak out on Twitter. Basically, Alan was just playing a funnier version of him, so the only thing I can think of is that Trump has no idea as to how ridiculous he looks or comes across to the rest of us. He really thinks that Alec's portrayal is a complete falsehood, whereas the reason it is so funny is that it is so close to the truth of who Trump really is.

He is offended because he does not like having a mirror held up to his face.

Thanks again for posting!

23. Apparently he's never looked in a mirror

He goes out of his way to make himself bizarre looking - let alone what comes out of his mouth - what does he expect? His eyesight must be as bad as his understanding of the issues. I actually thought that Alec Baldwin downplayed his impersonation last night - and concentrated on the nonsensical speech.
