Maybe because it’s too good. So good, in fact, that a newspaper used Baldwin’s picture in a story about Trump.
‘That Moment When @AlecBaldwin IS In Fact Donald Trump’
That was the reaction from one of the many Twitter users who posted a picture of El Nacional showing Alec Baldwin in his Trump get-up next to a picture of Benjamin Netenyahu, the prime minister of Israel.
According to The Hill:
“It was not immediately clear whether the image of Baldwin was accidental or an intentional joke.”
Of course, Twitter doesn’t care.
And Twitter ran with it.

Dear El Nacional, Alec Baldwin will be pleased as punch. But let's hope the Dominican Republic isn't added to Trump's banned countries list pic.twitter.com/vt4NJe4NJf

El Nacional apologized (or, as BaldwinTrump would say, “app-logized”) for the error.
But we thank you for the laugh in the meantime.
Alec Baldwin is the host for tonight’s installment of Saturday Night Live, a show which is currently enjoying its highest ratings in 22 years.
But don’t tell Trump that:
Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can't get any worse. Sad

Methinks the emperor doth protest too much.
Shockingly, Trump was silent on Twitter after last week’s show, which included the Grim Reaper as Steve Bannon implying that he’s the actual man in charge.
Watch Alec Baldwin as Trump here, followed by Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer (which is one of the funniest sketches Saturday Night Live has ever done):
