There has been so much talk about the American Presidency in the past few days, weeks and months, following the confirmation that US businessman and reality television star Donald Trump had won the race to the White House. Now that The Donald is in charge of running the country, there have been many people who have been vocal about their disapproval and their concerns, including some very big name superstars in the US.
One such star, who has made it very clear just how against Donald Trump he is, is the Hollywood veteran Alec Baldwin, who has now been talking about the possibility of one day running for the Presidency himself. While Alec has admitted that he would love to have the chance to bring America back to being great again, he did concede that the chances of it ever happening are very slim indeed.
Baldwin said, "I'd have to give up the life I have now [with three young children], which even if I had a good chance of winning, that's a risk I don't want to take. But I don't think I have a good chance of winning. In my mind, Trump has slammed the door on non-traditional candidates, and I think it's not going to happen. Nobody knows they would win, but if I thought I was going to win I'd like to, I would love to lead people in this country on a more spiritual level, and say to them I don't care what your religion is, let's talk about the American spirit. I think that people in the United States, they have a terrible dichotomy, and that is that they love their country and they hate their government."
He then went on to add, "The government of the United States has never been less popular than it is now. People absolutely loathe and detest the federal government of the United States. They hate it. They're ashamed of it. They can't believe we've sunk this far. At the same time, a majority of people love their country. I believe that we need somebody to come in who is going to start to sing an old song, an old favourite song, which is to talk about peace. Peace now is a naive thing, no one talks about peace now. I think that Americans are becoming a little cranky and filled with fear."
For now then, we will just have to make do with Alec Baldwin the actor, which we are more than happy about. Alec stars in the impressive new animated movie The Boss Baby, where he lends his voice to the lead character in the film. If you have yet to see The Boss Baby then we highly recommend that you give it a watch, you will not be disappointed.
