It was a case of mistaken identity for a Dominican Republic newspaper when they inadvertently used a photo of Alec Baldwin portraying Donald Trump instead of a photo of the commander-in-chief himself.

The article in El Nacional reported on President Trump’s Israeli settlements and ran with Baldwin’s Trump-esque pic alongside one of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Trump has long been a critic of Baldwin’s “Saturday Night Live” impersonation of him, tweeting, “Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks.”

It didn’t take long for the paper to issue a correction, but it also didn’t take long for the funny faux pas to spread like wildfire across social media.
