Whoops! Newspaper Posts Photo of Alec Baldwin on SNL Instead of Donald Trump
In an article about President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Dominican newspaper El Nacional made the editorial decision to use a photo of actor Alec Baldwin impersonating Trump on Saturday Night Live rather than one of Trump himself.

The photo has been changed in the online version of the story to one of the actual Trump, but the print version is already out there.
Coincidentally, Baldwin is scheduled to host SNL tonight for his record-breaking 17th time. It is a given that he’ll be pulling out his Trump impression.
As you’d expect, there were jokes on Twitter:

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
