It is well known fact that Alec Baldwin has reached a such deplorable level of political angst, that everything which drivels out of his mouth in reference to public policy is decadently obnoxious and typical of an elitist radical.
The actor, who is most well-known for promising to leave the country in the wake of the Bush election to the presidency in 2000, is unfortunately still living on US soil, and is part of an active and feverish groupthink effort that has ruined late night television, with a blatant attack on one side of the political spectrum.
Baldwin’s angry and sardonic portrayal of Trump, which borders on the disturbing rather than the humorous, has set off the warning bells throughout the comedic community, and prompted a negative response from Saturday Night Live alum. MSN shares the candid thoughts of former cast member Rob Schneider, on Baldwin and the overall performance of the show in keeping up with contemporary politics. Apparently, Schneider is bearish on how well the writers and comedians are handling current societal controversies, and is especially critical on the lack of subtlety and balance within the skits. He makes some insightful comments as to the direction of the show in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s.
As the celebrity community begins to realize that viewers are voting with their remotes, or abandoning traditional mediums completely for the abundance of entertainment options on devices, the Saturday Night Live brass has failed to acknowledge the shift in audience trends, and the show has earned tepid ratings. Factor in a lack of star power, and the willingness to attack the right, and the format is doomed for stagnation and a painful and slow decline in popularity.
