Alec Baldwin has branded President Trump and his supporters as "psychotics" and sees the leader's refusal to address the country's major problems as a "form of madness" that reminds him of the psychological character Norman Bates.

Baldwin spoke ahead of the catastrophic debate with Joe Biden on Tuesday night in which Trump claimed he had support from Portland's Sheriff regarding protests and that he got on well with the California governor amid forest fires, accusing him of covering up problems, instead of treating them with them.

Baldwin has been known for years for his Emmy award-winning portrayal of Trump. After much research and study of the characters, he now draws obvious comparisons with Alfred Hitchcock's fictional character with a dissociative identity.
"This vision of the world, this white privilege look of the world, is really like Norman Bates' dead mother in the basement," Baldwin continued.
"Just keep putting powder on her, putting make-up on her, throwing your ventriloquist-style voice into her dead corpse."
Baldwin, 62, believes there is a deeper problem with Trump using the adopted slogan "Make America Great Again".
