Twitter Explodes After Dominican Newspaper Prints Photo Of Alec Baldwin Instead of Trump By Mistake
Prepare For War: Dominican Newspaper Prints Photo Of Alec Baldwin Instead of Trump
Alec Baldwin’s impression of President Donald Trump is so good that he a Dominican newspaper mistook him for the real thing. As Oscar Wilde said, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. President Trump, however, does not agree. Donald Trump has called SNL and their latest skits boring, unwatchable and biased since they started the parodies of him. The American people, however, are simply loving it. Not only because Baldwin is hilarious but because he really does a good impression; so good, that Dominican newspaper El Nacional printed on Friday a photo of Alec Baldwin doing his impression of President Trump on SNL—instead of a photo of President Trump.
The photo appeared in an article about Donald Trump and Israel, regarding the Israeli illegal settlements and the damage they have cause on the Israel-Palestine road to peace. The photo, which was used side-by-side with a photo of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, was not exactly clear if it was used accidentally or as an intentional joke, although the next day El Nacional published a note apologizing for the mistake and stating that the photo was sent to them by the Associated Press and that no one had noticed the mistake. Guess we can’t blame them.
Whether the incident was intentional or not, social media users found the incident extremely funny:
Dear El Nacional, Alec Baldwin will be pleased as punch. But let's hope the Dominican Republic isn't added to Trump's banned countries list pic.twitter.com/vt4NJe4NJf

Guess the Dominican Republic will receive the next blow from Trump’s White House and El Nacional will headline a new list even worse than that of the “fake news” outlets who pester the administration with inconvenient facts. Surely worth the price in exchange for an increase in the number of subscribers and a good laugh.
