ALEC BALDWIN AND KURT ANDERSON ON TRUMP WATCH

What goes into creating an iconic impression? Does assuming the personality of a subject, even to make fun of them, allow you any new insight into their way of thinking?

On this week’s "TrumpWatch", host Jesse Lent speaks with Alec Baldwin whose impression of Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live,” both before and after the 2016 election, has become the definitive impression of the 45th President.

In addition to discussing what it’s like to perform as someone he admittedly dislikes, Alec compares playing Trump to some of his other iconic roles.

Jesse also speaks with Kurt Andersen, the host of “Studio 360” on Public Radio International, who co-authored a new Trump parody book with Alec, entitled “You Can't Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story of My Fantastic First Year as President Donald J. Trump.”
