Actor Alec Baldwin, in a tweet on Sunday, November 15, called for President Donald Trump to be buried in a Nazi graveyard with a Swastika placed on his grave. The celebrity activist took to Twitter to describe his idea of a fitting burial for Trump, writing: "Bury Trump in a Nazi graveyard and put a swastika on his grave. The majority of Americans made the right choice. Trump is a maniac." The actor wrote the tweet from his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation account, which has over 1 million followers.

Many of the actor's followers agreed with his comments, with some saying that Trump's presidency would be remembered as the most divisive era in American politics. One wrote: "His four years at the helm will be remembered as the darkest, most divisive and demented era in American politics. And when you reflect on the woes and ills of past Presidents, that says a lot. #TrumpGenocide" While another drew a similarity between the president and the North Korean ruler Kim Jong-un: "It’s almost cult like. He wants his followers to look at him like North Koreans look at Kim Jong-un."



 



 

There were others, however, who expressed concern over the suggestion of burying the president. One wrote: "As everyone knows, the further left you go, the more antisemitic you become. Shame on you for denigrating the memory of the Holocaust." A fourth said: "Please, stop using the Holocaust to justify your political point of view."



 



 

Baldwin, who is a known staunch Trump critic, has consistently voiced his opinion on Trump over the past four years, particularly in his skits on 'Saturday Night Live'. SNL, during the Trump presidency, has taken swipes at the president and his administration, enlisting Baldwin to play the Republican leader. Baldwin, shortly after Joe Biden's projected win in the 2020 presidential elections last week, had tweeted: "I don’t believe I’ve ever been this overjoyed to lose a job before," referring to his SNL kit role.



 

The actor has previously defended his impersonation of Trump while he was hospitalized with coronavirus, saying that he would not have done so if the Republican was "truly, gravely ill." Despite the popularity of his impression of Trump, the 61-year-old actor has stated multiple times that he dislikes playing the president.

“I think every time I did Trump after the first season — the first season everybody was high, they were in a lot of pain, they were confused,” Baldwin explained in the Season 3 premiere of Kevin Nealon’s YouTube series 'Hiking with Kevin' earlier this year. “They thought, even if you didn’t like [Hillary Clinton], it is impossible that he would beat her. They just didn’t see that.” He added that after his Emmy-winning portrayal of Trump in the first season, he had it as “fun, fun fun.” “Then, every time I did it — the second and third season I did it, I’d go into my room and I was like ‘I hope a meteor hits this building and kills me because I don’t want to do this ever again. I hate this," the actor said.
