Alec Baldwin to Pen a Book As Donald Trump
Alec Baldwin and Kurt Andersen are teaming up to pen a satirical book about President Trump.
Baldwin has a new-found success since portraying the president on “Saturday Night Live” and now he’s taking his parody to new heights.
The book, titled “You Can’t Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story of My Fantastic First Year as President Donald J. Trump” is scheduled for publication in November. Baldwin (as President Trump) will read the audiobook version.
Andersen says the book would focus on showcasing the real President Trump, as opposed to Baldwin’s version of him. “I think we’ll be channeling and amplifying the real Trump,” Mr. Andersen said. “Writing for a five- or 10-minute sketch is different than writing a book, which has to be a narrative.”
“I think it’s fair to say that Kurt will do most of the writing,” Baldwin said in an email interview. “We have that arrangement whereby he doesn’t put on the wig, I don’t open up a Word document.”
