Actor Alec Baldwin was triggered on Sunday morning after the political press passed around a “new” report about Donald Trump heckling Barack Obama in an faux Apprentice performance during the 2012 election. The problem? The story wasn’t new. Not even close. Breitbart broke it exclusively in July 2013. Still, it was enough to send Baldwin over the deep end.
“Let’s not spend the final weekend of Summer talking about this Faux-Bama tape,” the Boss Baby 2 star said of the recording that was meant to be used by Mitt Romney’s president campaign in 2012.
“Who fucking cares?” Baldwin asked in a 8:56 a.m. tweet. “Register to vote. And let’s get this fascist whore out of our lives.”

Who fucking cares?
Register to vote.
And let’s get this fascist whore out of our lives.

The latest media-induce phony scandal, not shockingly, comes from a new book by President Trump’s former attorney turned convicted felon Michael Cohen.
Here’s how CNN reported it:
Trump’s disdain for Obama was so extreme that he took his fixation a step further, according to Cohen: Trump hired a “Faux-Bama” to participate in a video in which Trump “ritualistically belittled the first black president and then fired him.”Cohen’s book, “Disloyal: A Memoir,” doesn’t name the man who was allegedly hired to play Obama or provide a specific date for the incident, but it does include a photograph of Trump sitting behind a desk, facing a Black man wearing a suit with an American flag pin affixed to the lapel. On Trump’s desk are two books, one displaying Obama’s name in large letters.
