25 Days of Happiness, Day 13: SNL and Alec Baldwin

So, the election. Yeah. Look, I’m not going to say anything, because even though it was supposedly over a month ago, the thing is, it’s still not really over. And things are happening. And I am writing this on Monday night, and by the time it publishes on Tuesday at noon, we could have entered a whole new phase, you know?

It’s not often that you KNOW you are living through history. These days are most definitely one of those times.

But there was at least one good things to come out of the overwhelming HOLY CRAPness of the past few political months, and that was Alec Baldwin. Specifically, Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump on Saturday Night.

Now don’t get me wrong – Kate McKinnon’s Hillary was outstanding. (And shall we talk about the half box of tissues I went through when she sang Hallelujah on the first show post-election?) But Baldwin’s Trump – oh. Masterpiece. A gift to all of us who lived through the aforementioned HOLY CRAPness.

It’s kind of hard to watch this now, but it’s so well done that it’s worth the ache. Watch. Laugh. Remember.
