Donald Trump Issues Executive Order Banning Actors From Impersonating Public Officials

L-R: Baldwin as Trump, McCarthy as Spicer, and Fey as Palin

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington, D.C.) – You may have seen the last of President Donald Trump, Press Secretary Sean Spicer and Sarah Palin on television — at least on ‘Saturday Night Live’ (SNL). Or Hillary Clinton for that matter.

Today, Trump signed his latest Executive Order, this one banning actors from impersonating public officials and other politicians on TV.

The order came just minutes after the popular TV show aired its latest episode.  It featured a skit mimicking White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and his outburst during a recent press briefing.  Actress Melissa McCarthy played the role of Spicer.

In recent months, SNL had featured Donald Trump the candidate and the president, impersonated by Alec Baldwin.

In past years, Tina Fey had played the role of then VP candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

At least nine different performers have played the role of Hillary Clinton on SNL, including Kate McKinnon.

In explaining the new Executive Order, (the real) Sean Spicer said that the ban had nothing to do with politics or egos.  “Rather,” he said, “the president felt that the actors were doing ‘a terrible job’ mimicking the politicians.”
