Haha, “this is us” am I right!!

Congratulations to Alec Baldwin for winning an Emmy award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his portrayal of our president (that’s Donald Trump—the Emmys keep reminding me, because I forget) on Saturday Night Live.

After some crock about him NOT getting his wife PREGNANT while he played Trump on TV (okay...), he said these words out loud:

I always remember what someone taught me. That is, when you die, you don’t remember a bill that Congress passed, or a decision the Supreme Court made, or an address made by the president. You remember a song, you remember a line from a movie, you remember a play, a book, a painting, a poem. What we do is important. And for all of your out there [jabs Emmy at crowd] in motion pictures and television, don’t stop doing what you’re doing, the audience is counting on you. Thank you.

This seems demonstrably untrue? Civil rights? Gay marriage? Roe v. Wade? I’m stopping now because this feels like a trap.
