Alec Baldwin's impression of Donald Trump might have started as a heightened version of reality, but it's fast becoming a situation where the real Trump is out-weirding the parody Trump.
In fact, it's almost at a stage where the two are interchangeable and becoming almost unrecognisable from one another. Don't believe us? Take a look at this.

Yes, the newspaper of record in the Dominican Republic - El Nacional - used an image of Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump in a piece about Trump's policies in the Middle East. From the looks of it, it wasn't a satirical article or an opinion piece, but an actual news report - with SNL Trump on top of it.
It's either a very clever bit of political commentary or the picture editor messed up. Either way, you gotta love it.
