This is a real howler. Next to Twitter, Donald Trump loved being an “actor” and all that came with it — or so it was said in Hollywood when he was doing The Apprentice. Today Trump wants you to know that he couldn’t care less what the union does, because they never did anything for him, anyway, and besides, he never even heard of them.

Trump and the Screen Actor’s Guild clashed last month, according to a January 19 news release, which cited Trump’s role in inciting the riot at the Capitol and his “reckless campaign of misinformation aimed at discrediting and ultimately threatening the safety of journalists, many of whom are SAG-AFTRA members.” The guild said that it could fine or expel Trump or both and here’s what he told them.

Ms. Carteris:

I write to you today regarding the so-called Disciplinary Committee hearing aimed at revoking my union membership. Who cares!

While I’m not familiar with your work, I’m very proud of my work on movies such as Home Alone 2, Zoolander and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps; and television shows including The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saturday Night Live, and of course, one of the most successful shows in television history,The Apprentice – to name just a few!

I’ve also greatly helped the cable news television business (said to be a dying platform with not much time left until I got involved in politics), and created thousands of jobs at networks such as MSDNC and Fake News CNN, among many others.

Which brings me to your blatant attempt at free media attention to distract from your dismal record as a union. Your organization has done little for its members, and nothing for me – besides collecting dues and promoting dangerous un-American policies and ideas – as evident by your massive unemployment rates and lawsuits from celebrated actors, who even recorded a video asking, “Why isn’t the union fighting for me?”

These, however, are policy failures. Your disciplinary failures are even more egregious.
I no longer wish to be associated with your union.

As such, this letter is to inform you of my immediate resignation from SAG-AFTRA. You have done nothing for me.

And he signs it “President” Donald J. Trump.”

SAG received the letter and issued a short statement, “Thank you” and so that is that, other than for the howling on Twitter, the other group of losers who told him to go away recently. Just like SAG and Fox News — oh, man, especially Fox News — they forget who got them where they are.

You absolutely don’t want Trump on a witness stand. His lawyer figured that out earlier today. Or, he probably figured it out a lot sooner, he just had to go on record with it today.

What is entertaining about the last two tweets is that apparently Trump has done “creative” projects that embarrass him — but he’s just fine with everything that happened in the four years he was in the White House. So Trump’s reel life stinks worse than his real life? That’s actually possible? Pardon me, my mind reels, I have to lie down.

  1. ‘ So Trump’s reel life stinks worse than his real life? That’s actually possible?’

    I have seen his ‘acting’ in these ‘roles’ and can confirm that it is possible.

    Also ‘Home Alone 2’ ? , many versions of the film now broadcast, cut his tiny and unnecessary scene out entirely, to the film’s benefit.

    In celluloid as well as actual reality, his presence is overblown puffery and completely valueless, other than being possibly harmful.

    • The DVD of Home Alone 2 that I have has the very short appearance of trump cut out. I bought it quite a few years ago. I was in fact very surprised to hear that trump was in the movie, and closely watched it to make sure that my copy of the DVD didn’t have that short appearance of trump in it. As Trump couldn’t even act for one minute like a true president in 4 years, I doubt that he could ever have been even as good as the worst actor in the universe!

      • I seem to recall that, at the time, the ‘price’ for shooting a scene in the Trump Dump was that his orangeness had to have a speaking part in it.

        Asfgaras I know, he did the same for other movies but his ‘scene’ sort of accidentally ended up on the cutting room floor before release.

      • The appearance in Home Alone 2 was really down to his orangeness making it a condition that, if they wanted to film inside the Trump Dump, he just HAD to have a speaking part in it. He did, as far as I know, try the same thing with other movies but, in those cases, the clip sort of accidentally ended up on the cutting room floor before release.

        HA2 just took their time with the scissors

  2. Maybe the folks who control the Hollywood Walk of Fame (they claim their by-laws prevent the revoking & removal of anyone’s start once it’s approved and installed) will FINALLY have Trump’s jackhammered out! Let’s see how he’d react to that! I’m sure he’d threaten to sue. I’m sure plenty of people in SAG including plenty who are struggling will pony up donations for a LOT better set of lawyers than Trump will be able to muster.

  3. He’s allowed to use the title, even if we’d like to catapult him into deep space. But AFAIK everything but “Apprentice” is cameos, and in “Apprentice” he was the pointy-haired boss that everyone hates.

  4. One late night host noted that being an out of work actor, now out of the union, he will lose health coverage. Time to sign up for Obamacare.
