AceShowbiz – Alec Baldwin has gone back to his iconic “Saturday Night Live” character to express his contempt at Donald Trump‘s suggestion for using disinfectant injections as coronavirus cure. On the same day the 45th President offered a clarification to his controversial remark, the former “30 Rock” star mocked the former by poking fun at his love for cheeseburgers.
Through Instagram on Friday, April 24, the 62-year-old posted a video of him putting out his best impression of the POTUS. Kicking off the 3-minute clip, he stated, “I want to clear up something right now about what was said yesterday about disinfectants and using disinfectants to fight the coronavirus. I was, of course, being facetious.”
“It was sarcasm, but the fake news media didn’t pick up on that,” the father of Ireland Baldwin went on. “I was joking. I wasn’t suggesting that you take Lysol and shoot it into your veins or squirt it on some washcloth and huff it yourself or that you snort it.”
“I’m not being sarcastic. I’m not joking at all, and that is cheeseburgers,” the “Beetlejuice” actor continued, before explaining that the meals “have always come to the rescue.” He added, “You take a cheeseburger and you dip it in butter, you soak it in butter, and you insert it in your rectum.”
Noting that the “cheeseburgers make everything normal,” the ex-husband of Kim Basinger assured people that it would definitely “kill the virus dead.” He additionally gushed, “Cheeseburgers have always saved my life, cheeseburgers have always picked me up when I am down.”
Baldwin’s jest came after Trump threw in the controversial statement during his daily briefing on Thursday, April 23. “I see the disinfectant – where it knocks it out in a minute, one minute,” he voiced his thought at the time. “And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning?”
Receiving many backlash for his remark, the POTUS clarified himself one day later. “I was asking a sarcastic – and a very sarcastic question – to the reporters in the room about disinfectant on the inside,” he claimed. “But it does kill it, and it would kill it on the hands and that would make things much better. That was done in the form of a sarcastic question to the reporters.”
