While Donald Trump was preparing for Inauguration Day in Washington, D.C. on Thursday night, multiple protests were starting to take place in cities across the country. One protest took place outside of a Trump Hotel in New York City, which featured an appearance by Alec Baldwin.

Baldwin on Trump

As they have for the better part of 40 years, the sketch comedy show "Saturday Night Live" has made spoofs and satire over politicians, mostly during election season. For the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump was an easy target, with Alec Baldwin being brought in to play the role of the billionaire real estate mogul.

Much to the chagrin of Trump, Baldwin received rave reviews from critics, prompting the president-elect to react negatively on social media on a routine basis. Trump became so angry that in the weeks leading up to Election Day, he called for the show to be cancelled, while referring to Baldwin as "sad" and "not funny." According to The Hill on January 19, Baldwin brought his mockery of Trump to the New York City Protest.

Despite the cold weather, Alec Baldwin joined filmmaker Michael Moore, actor Robert De Niro, and others as the protest against Donald Trump took place in the Big Apple.

With his impression of Trump ready to go, Baldwin told those on hand, "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." "I'm going to the Russian consulate later tonight," Baldwin said, continuing his impression.

Change of tone

Getting serious, Alec Baldwin then went on to rip Donald Trump and his administration over what they have proposed to do in the White House.

"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," he pointed out, before noting "They don't realize New Yorkers never lay down." The audience cheered Baldwin on, as the protest continued.

Moving forward

With Donald Trump set to become the 45th President of the United States on Inauguration Day, the backlash against him doesn't look to be slowing down anytime soon. Over 50 Democrats have announced that they will boycott the inauguration, with the idea of bipartisan relationship in Congress not getting off on the right track.
