Trump’s Son Says Alec Baldwin Should Play Himself in SNL Parody Mocking His ‘Spanish’ Wife Hilaria

Hollywood actor Alec Baldwin, who impersonates Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, has been hit by a scandal: his 36-year-old wife Hilaria, originally from Boston, has been accused of pretending to be Spanish. She responded by saying that people have “misrepresented” her.

Donald Trump Jr., the son of the US president, just could not stay away from the controversy surrounding the wife of Alec Baldwin, the actor who frequently takes aim at his family and father in particular during Saturday Night Live appearances.

Hilaria Baldwin, born Hillary Hayward-Thomas, is having a difficult time on social media after it was revealed on Twitter that the socialite, who repeatedly spoke with a heavy Spanish accent during her TV appearances and even once had difficulty remembering the English word for “cucumber” during the Today Show, had no solid links to Spain whatsoever – apart from the fact that her parents moved there in 2011 and she had travelled a lot to the country as a child. Her husband, however, claimed at some point that his wife was from Spain, and her bio at CAA and IMDb pages had previously stated Mallorca, Spain as her place of birth.

“Alec Baldwin should play Alec Baldwin when SNL parodies his wife pretending she’s Spanish for the last few decades as opposed to the basic white girl from Mass that she actually is. It would be the first funny thing Saturday Night Live has produced in years,” Don Jr. wrote on Twitter.

Shortly before the tweet, he shared an article about Alec Baldwin’s wife titled “Hilaria Baldwin Says People Are Just ‘Confused’ About Her Fake Accent, Spanish Heritage.”

“They’re confused as to why anyone would spend decades lying about your place of birth and fake an accent…”, the president’s son commented.

Don Jr.’s words have found some response among Twitter crowd who have been following news surrounding the “fake Spanish heritage” scandal for days. But many just could not ignore the fact that a lot of Baldwin’s impersonations are actually too funny to miss.
