Oh WOW, Donald Trump is not going to like this!!!
A newspaper called El Nacional in the Dominican Republic just apologized on Saturday afternoon after mistakenly using a photo of Alec Baldwin dressed as The Donald on Saturday Night Live in a story about the real Donald Trump! Oops!!
The paper placed the photo right next to one of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and published the day’s edition before ever realizing their BIG mistake — and while the news organization was quick and forceful in their sincere apology, it still made everyone laugh!
Here’s the pic, via Twitter, of the newspaper’s erroneous page (below):
And the tweet that noticed it:
Dear El Nacional, Alec Baldwin will be pleased as punch. But let’s hope the Dominican Republic isn’t added to Trump’s banned countries list pic.twitter.com/vt4NJe4NJf

And, per Variety, here’s the translated apology from El Nacional about making the mistake in the first place:
“El Nacional published on Friday as Donald Trump a picture of actor Alec Baldwin, who imitates on a television program the president of the United States.
The picture was sent that day by Associated Press (AP) with the name of the actor and informed about the program, but it was placed as if it were the one of Trump, situation that happened unnoticed for all that reviewed page 19.
El Nacional apologizes to the readers and to all those who felt affected by the publication. Actor Baldwin imitates President Trump on the Saturday Night Live weekly show on the National Broadcasting Company (NBC), one of the most important in the United States.”
Just goes to show: (a) everybody makes mistakes, and (b) Baldwin’s impression is getting REALLY good!
Also, like the tweet said, let’s hope the Dominican Republic doesn’t see negative fallout from Dictator Donald over this one!!
