Yet again, Alec Baldwin knocked it out of the park with his impression of Donald Trump…
The Saturday Night Live sketch opened with a Vice Presidential Debate before “breaking news” flashed on the screen, and Donald Trump appeared to comment on the leaked audio recordings in which he says being a “star” allows him to grab women “by the p****.” Trump said that he would like to “apple-a-gize,” and when asked if he was trying to “apologize,” Trump said, “No, I would never do that. What I am doing is apple-a-gizing to all the people who were deeply offended by my statements, but more importantly, to the people who were turned on by them. I hear it’s really 50-50.”
Trump was then asked what he would say to all the female voters. “I would say, women, if you give me a chance, I promise I can do a whole lot more than just grab it,” he said. “I can also bop it, twist it and pull it.” And oh, there’s more — just watch the video above!
A handful of celebrities have ripped into Trump following his latest scandal, and now some very prominent Republicans are withdrawing their support too.
Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger took to his Twitter to slam the presidential candidate, writing:
As proud as I am to label myself a Republican, there is one label that I hold above all else – American. My full statement: pic.twitter.com/biRvY8S3aZ

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice wrote on Facebook:
- “Enough! Donald Trump should not be President. He should withdraw. As a Republican, I hope to support someone who has the dignity and stature to run for the highest office in the greatest democracy on earth.”
John McCain, who was the republican presidential candidate in 2008, added on his website:
- “In addition to my well known differences with Donald Trump on public policy issues, I have raised questions about his character after his comments on Prisoners of War, the Khan Gold Star family, Judge Curiel and earlier inappropriate comments about women. As I said yesterday, there are no excuses for Donald Trump’s offensive and demeaning comments in the just released video; no woman should ever be victimized by this kind of inappropriate behavior. He alone bears the burden of his conduct and alone should suffer the consequences. Donald Trump’s behavior this week, concluding with the disclosure of his demeaning comments about women and his boasts about sexual assaults, make it impossible to continue to offer even conditional support for his candidacy.”
While McCain and his wife “will not vote for Donald Trump,” they aren’t voting for Clinton either. “We will write in the name of some good conservative Republican who is qualified to be President,” he added.
