Way to tell ’em! Alec Baldwin spoke out at a massive anti-Donald Trump rally against the incoming president. Keep reading for how he did his hilarious impression of the PEOTUS while joking about taking a pee at the Russian Embassy.
On the eve of Donald Trump‘s inauguration, celebrities and thousands of New Yorkers showed up to protest his policies at the United We Stand rally Jan. 19, and Alec Baldwin, 58, was among the proud citizens to get up and speak out against him. The actor, who portrays the 70-year-old tycoon on Saturday Night Live much to Donald’s chagrin, brought a little levity to his speech with his imitation. “I just want to say, I’ve been standing out here in the freezing cold for a long time. I have to go to the bathroom — I have to pee,” he said in his best Donald voice.
“But I’m holding it in, holding it in. I’m not going to pee. I’m going to a function at the Russian consulate tonight. I’m going to hold it in until I get there. And then when I get to the Russian consulate, I’m going to have a really, really long pee. Like the biggest pee I’ve ever had in my lifetime,” he joked.
Then he really got down to business, slamming the billionaire and the incoming vice president as well. “These people are a disgrace, but there is hope,” he told the cheering crowd. “Trump and Pence think you’re going to lay down. That’s one thing about New Yorkers: You don’t lay down.” Needless to say that brought tons of applause from the thousands of Big Apple residents who braved the cold night air to participate in the event.
He added, “We must teach our children what real Americans are – teach them that we demand a government that has full participation and full transparency these people are a disgrace! Go to IDNYC.gov and participate and be educated on what is happening, stand-up for our freedom.”

Other stars that lent their voices included Oscar winner Julianne Moore, 56, who spoke out about immigrant rights as she’s a first generation American since her mom moved to the U.S. from Scotland. Sally Field, 70, spoke out on labor and workers rights, while Mark Ruffalo, 49, encouraged the crowd to stay filled with hope, love and decency during what looks to be four dark years ahead. Native New Yorker Robert DeNiro, 73, slammed Donald, saying he’s “a bad example of this country and this city.”
HollywoodLifers, do you think the protest sent a clear message to Donald? Or will he completely ignore it?
