Alec Baldwin is writing a parody memoir of Trump's first year. This is not an 'SNL' skit.


Alec Baldwin, whose impersonations of President Trump on "Saturday Night Live" became instant classics, is now co-writing a memoir about Trump's first year in office.

The book, presumably written from the perspective of Baldwin-as-Trump, is titled "You Can't Spell American Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story of My Fantastic First Year as President Donald J. Trump." Penguin Press announced the book Wednesday.

Baldwin will also read the audiobook version. 

Kurt Andersen is also a co-writer.

We have that arrangement whereby he doesn't put on the wig, I don't open up a word document.

Baldwin admitted Andersen would do most of the actual writing in an interview with The New York Times.

When asked about the book's tone, he said it would be "sharp. It won't just be fun-loving."

Penguin Press seemed excited to be involved.

Here's a look at the book's cover.

This comes on the heels of the Obamas inking book deals for non-parody memoirs rumored to be in the tens of millions.

Baldwin's character has become so iconic, celebrities and fans have petitioned to have him headline the White House Correspondents' Association dinner after Trump declined. 

So far, despite the urging of Zach Braff, George Takei and Michael Moore, among others, Baldwin hasn't accepted the offer. 

Trump has said Baldwin's portrayal of him "stinks."
