Actor Zach Braff has trolled President Donald Trump on Twitter in the most spectacular way!
Zach Braff, best known for “Scrubs” and “Garden State” suggested that actor Alec Baldwin do his famous impression of Trump, made famous on Saturday Night Live, at the White house Correspondents' Association dinner after Trump announced on Twitter that he wouldn't be attending.
“Alec Baldwin time to suit up,” Braff tweeted.

“I will not be attending the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!” Trump had tweeted.
The sitting president typically attends the dinner, where there is discussion of journalism and some light-hearted ribbing aimed at both the press and the president. It's a great example of “If we all can't make fun of ourselves, we're taking ourselves too seriously.”
As a side note, the last president to skip this dinner was former president Ronald Reagan in 1981. But even then, he had a decent excuse, he was recovering from an assassination attempt!
After Zach's tweet, Twitter exploded with people supporting his idea:
Email from a viewer: “PLEASE, please, have Alec Baldwin invited to the White House Correspondents dinner since Trump is not going…”
