Alec Baldwin's Trump act fools newspaper - BBC

Actor Alec Baldwin's impression on Saturday Night Live of Donald Trump tricked a national newspaper into thinking he was the real thing, according to BBC.


El Nacional in the Dominican Republic has now apologized for accidentally publishing a still of Alec Baldwin, captioned as the US president, next to Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, BBC reported.

The image accompanied an article about Israeli settlements.

The paper has said sorry to readers and "anyone affected".

"Not funny, cast is terrible, always a complete hit job. Really bad television!" he once tweeted.
