First, I have a “shocking announcement” for those who think that I am a Trump hater.
I’m with the former president on this one because disgraced Hollywood Leftist Alec Baldwin has long deserved a comeuppance of the “bigly” kind. Hell, let’s just call it what it is: well-deserved karma.
The headline “last laugh” refers to Baldwin’s portrayal on “Saturday Night Live” of Trump, in the “Who’s now laughing, Alec?” type of way.
Remember the idiotic behavior?
Who’s still laughing? Donald Trump, not Alec Baldwin.
According to the Washington Examiner’s report, Trump will give Baldwin the spotlight in his upcoming book “Letters To Trump,” which is scheduled to be released on April 25. The actor has written a “gushy note” to the former reality TV star and real estate tycoon.
Former President Trump wrote about Baldwin:
Every time I saw Alec Baldwin, he said, “I want to portray your life story.”
Little did I know he was a bad guy and would play my life in a very different way and with much lesser ability than an actor on Saturday Night Live versus a comedian.
Baldwin wrote a note in handwriting to Trump thanking him for “comping’ a penthouse during a recent New York trip. The note from 1998 reads as follows:
You are an incredibly generous and sweet man, even for a guy who is in a very tough industry. You will never be able to thank me enough for the amazing penthouse that you “comped”. You are a gentleman.
Who would have thought it?
Who’d a thunk it?

In terms of politics, it is important to note that Trump changed his party affiliations like IHOP does pancakes. Trump has switched parties five times according to voting records. He registered as a Republican for the first time in 1987. In 1991, he switched to the Independence Party. Less than two years after that, he switched again, becoming a Democrat.
He returned to the Republican Party in 1999, only to check the box “I do not wish to enroll in a party” two years later. Trump then returned to the GOP in April 2012 — and announced his candidacy for the GOP presidential nomination just three years later, in June 2015.
You can make of “all of the aforementioned” whatever you want; my point is that Trump has been a political target most of his adult life, including when he was a registered Democrat during the time of Baldwin’s note.
Baldwin’s deserved punishment is less about his fatal shooting on the set of “Rust”, a movie that was never finished. Baldwin claimed he wasn’t the one who fired the gun, but New Mexico prosecutors ruled he was. It’s more about how the arrogant, leftist has treated everyone else but himself for years.
Trump wrote about Baldwin’s denial of the truth in his book.
Alec Baldwin became a psycho over time. He is a sick puppy. It’s hard to believe that he believed the gun wasn’t loaded. In any case, I wish him luck but I still like the young Alec Baldwin – there’s nothing good in what time has done to him.
Donald, you’ve got it right — and with class.
The book “Letters To Trump” was released by the Donald Trump Jr.-led firm, along with family friend Sergio Gor and Trump associates. It has been “a huge” success in pre-release sales. The book is $99, and a signed copy can be purchased for $399.
The latter might be the ideal coffee table book to give that “special someone” in your life.
