Alec Baldwin took home the Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role as Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, and, of course, he called out the President in his acceptance speech tonight. In addition to offering the president his Emmy win, “at long last,” Baldwin noted, to lots of laughs, “My wife and I had three children in three years and we didn’t have a child last year during the SNL season… You put that orange wig on, it’s birth control, trust me.” Below is his full speech.
I suppose I should say, “At long last, Mr. President, here is your Emmy.” I want to thank my wife, my wife and I had three children in three years and we didn’t have a child last year during the SNL season. I wonder if there is a correlation there. You put that orange wig on, it’s birth control, trust me. Thank you to Lorne, always to Lorne, thank you to Chris and Sarah and kenward and all the great writers at SNL, congratulations to Kate and, thank you to the cast, thank you to Lindsey and to Grace for making me feel welcome there. Thank you to Stephen for giving me a lot of encouragement.
“I want to say, if I leave anybody out, I’m sorry, but I want to get this in. I always remember someone told me when you die you don’t remember a bill that Congress passed or a decision the Supreme Court made, or an address made by the President. You remember a song, you remember a line from a movie, you remember a play, you remember a book, a painting, a poem. What we do is important. And for all of you out there in motion pictures and television, don’t stop doing what you are doing. The audience is counting on you. Thank you.”
