Alec Baldwin to Co-Write Satirical Book About President Trump

Alec Baldwin has a “yuge” announcement.

The actor is taking his “Saturday Night Live” impersonation of President Donald Trump to the next level by writing an entire book with Kurt Anderson titled “You Can’t Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story of My Fantastic First Year as President Donald J. Trump.” The book is scheduled to be published in November, according to the New York Times.

Anderson, currently the host of the public radio show “Studio 360,” is known as a founding editor of the now-defunct Spy magazine in the 1980s. There, Anderson coined a nickname for Trump, “short-fingered vulgarian.”

“I think it’s fair to say that Kurt will do most of the writing,” Baldwin told the Times over email. “We have that arrangement whereby he doesn’t put on the wig, I don’t open up a Word document.”

Baldwin will, however, narrate the audiobook as Trump, according to the Times.

Trump has donned the Trump wig on “SNL” since the 42nd season’s premiere. His frequent appearances in almost every episode since then have elicited various insults from Trump’s twitter account.

“Time to retire the boring and unfunny show,” Trump tweeted about “SNL” in October. “Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks.”

Later, in December, Trump tweeted that the NBC show is “unwatchable” and has also called it a “hit job.” At one point in December, Baldwin offered to “stop” his impersonation if Trump released his tax returns.

Penguin Press tweeted out the news about Baldwin and Anderson’s collaboration, writing, “we’re so excited to publish [the book].”
