Just in case you were thinking of wheeling out your own impression in the near future, Alec Baldwin is here with some pointers on how he's become the most successful faux-president ever.

It must suck on some level for Alec Baldwin that his entire career spanning decades has come down to doing idiotic impressions of Donald Trump on SNL but it doesn't look like Trump's going anywhere soon so Baldwin's probably got the right idea hitching his wagon to this train for now.

Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel last night, Baldwin explained how he does his version of Trump, and apart from the exaggerated pout and hand gestures, it all comes down to thought process.

"To me, Trump is someone who is always searching for a stronger, better word, and he never finds it," Baldwin said.

And with that realisation, a terrible beauty was born.
