Left-wing actor Alec Baldwin seems to think that Bill Clinton deserves “a couple of years” more in the White House.

“If we follow Trump’s thinking about what was ‘stolen’ by his political opponents, let’s go further,” Alec Baldwin fumed on Tuesday. “I want Bill Clinton back in office for a couple of years.”

Baldwin was goaded by a pair of President Trump’s tweets about how he has had two years of his presidency stolen from him over the “collusion delusion.”

On Saturday, May 4, the president re-tweeted a tweet by Christian activist Jerry Falwell who insisted that the media has stolen two years of Trump’s presidency with a constant stream of lies about “Russia collusion.” And that now that special counsel Robert Mueller has proven the “collusion” claims to be false, Trump is owed two extra years in the White House as a sort of do-over.

In a tweet of his own, the president later added, “Despite the tremendous success that I have had as President, including perhaps the greatest ECONOMY and most successful first two years of any President in history, they have stolen two years of my (our) Presidency (Collusion Delusion) that we will never be able to get back.”

But Baldwin was also spurred by a story by CNN that claims “hundreds of former Justice officials assert Trump would be facing felony charges if he were not president.”

“Trump wants two years added on due to the ‘attempted coup?'” Baldwin said.

“But…but…subtract for the corruption, stupidity, poor management skills, miserable leadership qualities, greed, sloth, bad hair dye, AND THIS,” Baldwin tweeted about the CNN story.
