It has come to this: Alec Baldwin, who parodies Donald Trump regularly on “Saturday Night Live,” is expanding on that franchise with a book, which he is co-writing with Spy magazine co-founder Kurt Andersen. The Los Angeles Times reports that the book, “You Can’t Spell America Without ME,” is a parody written as Donald J. Trump.
The book carries the subtitle “The Really Tremendous Inside Story of My Fantastic First Year as President Donald J. Trump,” and will be published in November by Penguin Press.
“Baldwin told the New York Times that he’ll leave the heavy lifting to Andersen, whose Spy magazine lampooned Trump throughout the 1980s, long before he sought the presidency,” the L.A. Times notes.
Baldwin reportedly said: “I think it’s fair to say that Kurt will do most of the writing. We have that arrangement whereby he doesn’t put on the wig, I don’t open up a Word document.”
