Alec Baldwin Pulls Double Duty as Bill O’Reilly and Donald Trump on ‘SNL': Watch
If Alec Baldwin‘s uncanny ability to transform into Donald Trump leaves you reeling with laughter while watching Saturday Night Live, you’ll do a double take when you see his mind-boggling Bill O’Reilly impression.
The actor appeared on NBC’s hit sketch show on April 8, where he pulled double duty as both the controversial Fox News talking head and the controversial president during a skit that lampooned the conservative spin machine that is The O’Reilly Factor.
