Alec Baldwin couldn’t help himself.
Although Baldwin wasn’t wearing the suit or wig that he’s used in his portrayal of the president-elect on “Saturday Night Live” in recent months, he still managed to throw effective shade at Trump by repeatedly referencing his alleged ties to Russia.
“I just want to say, I’ve been standing out here in the freezing cold for a long time,” Baldwin said, as Trump. “I have to go to the bathroom. I have to pee. But I’m holding it in, I’m holding it in, I’m not gonna pee. I’m going to a function at the Russian consulate tonight, I’m gonna hold it in ‘till I get there.”
“And then when I get to the Russian consulate, I’m going to have a really, really long pee,” he continued. “Like the biggest pee I’ve ever had in my lifetime.”
Baldwin later turned serious and urged the crowd to “never lay down” in resisting Trump and his administration. He also encouraged demonstrators to tell their children what was happening.
“They’re never too young for you to teach them about what’s going on here,” Baldwin said. “They’re never too young for you to teach them what a real American is.”
Singer Cher and actors Robert De Niro, Julianne Moore and Marisa Tomei also appeared at the event, which filmmaker Michael Moore and actor Mark Ruffalo helped organize.
