Alec Baldwin Shockingly Responds To Rob Schneider “SNL Was Over” Comment!!

Alec Baldwin has something to say to Rob Schneider 

Rob Schneider stated earlier this week that he believes Saturday Night Live is “finished,” describing the time he felt it had occurred. He mentioned the sketch in which Hillary Clinton is seen sitting at a piano and singing “Hallelujah” after she lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. In response to those remarks, Alec Baldwin, who has played the former president on Saturday Night Live for the past six years, appeared.

McKinnon has previously discussed the “Hallelujah” sketch, saying it made her feel like she was a part of the crowd. The aforementioned sketch has received 12.9 million views on YouTube and has undoubtedly had an effect on viewers. Schneider reacted on Baldwin’s impression along with his remarks regarding McKinnon, claiming that Baldwin had “nothing but a simmering, seething rage against” his Trump. Then, the 30 Rock star replied to the remarks on Instagram.

When Rob Schneider thought SNL was over

If we’re talking about Rob Schneider’s opinions about Kate McKinnon portraying Hillary Clinton so many years ago, it must be an exceedingly slow news cycle. During the campaign in 2016, we began doing it. Unbelievably, he was then elected in November, and for those four years, I ran the show while we did it. Quite a bit the first year, slightly less the second, less the third, and not much the fourth year.

Following Trump’s victory in the 2016 election, Baldwin’s imitation remained a staple on Saturday Night Live throughout his time in office. Alec Baldwin appeared less frequently as his term progressed, although he claimed he would likely return to play Trump if requested. During the 2020 presidential campaign, the actor reprised his role as Trump. Jim Carrey’s portrayal of Joe Biden and Baldwin’s Trump were featured in the “First Debate Cold Open.”

Alec Baldwin discussed his views on Schneider’s assertions that Saturday Night Live is over and what he thinks of a former cast member of the program making such statements.

He said that he just have one thing to say. He comes from the school of thought—and he’s been in this company for a while—where you criticize someone’s judgment without mentioning the fact that you didn’t have an issue with it when they hired you. Put you on the show when their hiring decision resulted from that judgment. Naturally, Rob Schneider had a sharp mind and is a very, very hilarious man.

Alec Baldwin then praised Schneider’s sense of humor before moving on to discuss his views on political analysts and commentators.

Since 2020, Alec Baldwin hasn’t had an SNL appearance. The impression has now been assumed by one of the show’s new cast members, James Austin Johnson, and it has elicited significant emotions from viewers.

In the upcoming 48th season of SNL, the newcomer will appear alongside Bowen Yang, Kenan Thompson, and other fan favorites. But many are departing. Along with other long-standing cast members, Kate McKinnon and Pete Davidson’s departure was revealed at the conclusion of Season 47. Additionally recently revealed departures from the show are Melissa Villaseor, Alex Moffat, and Aristotle Athari.
