That sent shockwaves through the entertainment community, at least as it relates to the inauguration, and now Holliday is speaking out to explain her decision, and what she went through with the entire process.
Speaking with THR, Holliday reveals her reasoning in the first place for accepting the invitation late last week:
Alec Baldwin has been teasing Donald Trump for months now, in addition to blasting the President-elect on Saturday Night Live, and last night, the actor did NOT hold back a steady stream of jokes and roasts for The Donald!!
In a cold open to the show (as you can watch on video, above), Baldwin rips Trump apart for his "pee pee parties," his connections to Russia, his hatred of journalists, and SO much more — and there's even a surprise appearance or two there, too!!
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!!
Trump didn't directly respond to Baldwin this time, but The Donald did tweet this (below) earlier in the evening on Saturday:
Inauguration Day is turning out to be even bigger than expected. January 20th, Washington D.C. Have fun!

After 146 years of traveling entertainment and controversy (more on that below), the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is planning on shutting down, offering its final show in May, according to Kenneth Feld, the CEO and producer of the show.
The news was announced Saturday night on the company's website, and cited steadily declining ticket sales to their shows across the country — even after the company stopped using elephants in its tours, at the request of animal rights activists.
