El Nacional, a major newspaper in the Dominican Republic, issued an apology Saturday after readers realized a photo of Donald Trump, used for a story on U.S. – Israeli relations, was actually Alec Baldwin portraying Trump on SNL. According to the paper, the mistake went “unnoticed” due to a “mix-up of photos.”
The paper officially stated, “The picture was sent that day by the Associated Press with the name of the actor and the program, but was placed as if it were the one of Trump. El Nacional apologizes to the readers and to all those who felt sincerely affected by the publication. Alec Baldwin imitates Trump on one of the most important shows in the U.S.” A full retraction and explanation will be printed in Sunday’s paper. Meanwhile, Twitter had a field day responding to the paper’s mix-up.
