This newspaper accidentally printed a photo of Alec Baldwin instead of Trump

Joseph McCormick February 14, 2017

When life imitates art too accurately, sometimes photos are going to get mixed up.

Or at least that’s what happened at the Dominican national newspaper El Nacional on Friday, when it accidentally printed a photo of actor Alec Baldwin’s Trump SNL sketch instead of the real thing.

The photo was printed alongside a picture of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

After the gaffe, the newspaper printed an apology, despite some believing that it was an intentional joke.

“The situation went unnoticed by those who revised page 19,” the newspaper said in a statement on Saturday.

“El Nacional apologises to its readers and anyone who felt affected”.

Meanwhile on Twitter…

For those unfamiliar with Baldwin’s Trump, check it out here via SNL, where the President makes out with Russian President ‘Putin’.

Baldwin is one of a raft of SNL stars who have taken on Trump and his associates, with Melissa McCarthy taking aim at Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Rosie O’Donnell, who is desperate to take on Steve Bannon, and Kate McKinnon who relentlessly mocked Trump in her Hillary Clinton guise.
