A Dominican Newspaper Couldn’t Tell President Trump And Alec Baldwin’s Trump Apart

President Trump is not a fan of Alec Baldwin’s impression on “Saturday Night Live.” On more than one occasion, the president has used his personal Twitter account to fire shots at the actor.

Trump is convinced that “the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse.”

Fans of “Saturday Night Live,” however, can’t get enough of Alec Baldwin’s Trump impression. His recent hosting duties on “SNL” earned the show its highest ratings for a single episode in six years, according to Fortune, and the show’s overall ratings are at a 20-year high.

Alec Baldwin’s impression is apparently so good that it fooled the Dominican Newspaper El Nacional.

No, it wasn’t a joke. In a story titled “Trump says settlements in Israel don’t favor peace,” El Nacional posted a photo of the actor in his “SNL” Trump costume and makeup. The photo of Baldwin-as-Trump appeared on page 19 of the February 10th issue.

Shortly after the mix up, El Nacional issued an apology.

El Nacional explained the mix up on their website, saying that they had received the image of Baldwin as Trump from the Associated Press (AP). The misidentification went unnoticed by the editors, which led to the unfortunate error. The Dominican newspaper apologized to anyone that was “affected” by the error.

So far President Trump has not tweeted about El Nacional‘s mix-up.

Beyoncé stood out, as usual, at this year’s Grammy awards. Because of her wardrobe and overall aesthetic of her performance, people all over Twitter are now starting to compare Queen Bey to La Virgen De Guadalupe. Yes, the sacred Virgin Mary. Check out how people felt about this comparison:

In case you missed it, here’s how Beyoncé looked during her performance at the Grammys.

Which many of her fans felt blessed to witness. ??

And as soon as Bey began to perform, many noticed the resemblance right away:

Like, “HOLD UP — let me take out my Virgen de Guadalupe statue for comparison really quick.”

The resemblance was actually so spot on, some people even felt like they were in church.⛪️

So Beyoncé’s performance might help you feel a little less guilty in case you missed Sunday morning mass.

Which is why three minutes into Bey’s performance, people on Twitter started reciting prayers like:

I guess you can say this guy was feeling extra blessed.??

For a better wardrobe comparison, check out these side by side images:

Not identical, but definitely a few similarities including the gold details and the over-the-head veil.

Here’s another side by side comparison including Bey’s enormous, gold halo.

The comparisons began before the Grammys, when Beyoncé released her maternity photos:

From the colors to the roses, there are undeniable similarities.

It’s no wonder this man’s niece literally confused Beyoncé for La Virgen de Guadalupe:

Some are even suggesting that Televisa should sign a contract with Beyoncé so that she can be featured in the next season of “La Rosa de Guadalupe.”

Now imagine how badass her audition would be…??

But some people are not liking this comparison at all…


Others are absolutely in love with the elements of the Virgen de Guadalupe that they saw in Bey’s wardrobe and performance.

They definitely appreciate the artistic and religious inspiration.

But no matter what Beyoncé wore that night, there’s no doubt many people felt blessed simply by her presence.

#Goddess ??

Not that she can make miracles happen or anything ?…
