The Hill reports:
Alec Baldwin reprised his impersonation of Donald Trump on Thursday during a protest of the president-elect hosted by celebrities Baldwin, Michael Moore and Mark Ruffalo outside a Trump New York City hotel.
Baldwin stood up to speak, pretending to be Trump and complaining about the cold outside.
“I just want to say, that standing out here in the freezing cold for a long time. I have to pee, but I’m holding it in,” Baldwin said in the voice he uses to impersonate Trump on “Saturday Night Live.”
“I’m going to the Russian Consulate later tonight,” he continued, mocking Trump’s relationship with Russia.
Baldwin went on to discuss the focus of the protest, which is to challenge Trump’s presidency.
“Donald Trump and Steve Bannon and Mike Pence and all these people that are a part of Trump’s administration think you’re going to lay down,” Baldwin said. “The one thing they don’t realize is New Yorkers never lay down.”
Bannon is a top Trump adviser, and Pence will become vice president Thursday.
Baldwin went on to encourage the crowd to join in on the 100 days of protest started by Moore.
“I’m a parent,” Baldwin added. “Our children are never too young to know what’s going on and to teach them what a real American is. And real Americans want full transparency of their government.”
Baldwin concluded by introducing the Rev. Al Sharpton.
The night included speeches from New York Mayor Bill De Blasio, abd actor and singer Cher.
