Alec Baldwin Pokes Fun At Trump ‘Make America Great AgainIn Russian
Alec Baldwin, who has satirized Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live since before the election, joked about Trump even though the show is on break.
The actor posted a picture on Instagram in which Baldwin is wearing a red cap with the Trump campaign slogan “Make America Great Again. ” But it’s written in Cyrillic, the Russian alphabet.
Baldwin has mocked Trump and his thoughts on Russia in previous episodes of SNL. A U.S. intelligence report said Russia is behind the hacking meant to target the recent U.S. presidential campaign. But the President-elect downplayed the Russian role. He is also known for admiring the Russian president, Vladimir Putin.
An expert from CNN pointed out that the writing on Baldwin’s cap is inaccurate.
Former CNN Moscow bureau chief and CNN Contributor Jill Dougherty said this is not at all how Russians would say it or write it and wouldn’t be surprised if Baldwin came up with the phrase by plugging it into Google Translate. The words are technically correct, but there are grammatical errors.
“In fact, we just Google translated it, and it’s translated exactly like on the cap,” Dougherty said.
