Alec Baldwin - who has portrayed POTUS on Saturday Night Live since 2016 - said in an interview with Howard Stern on Monday that if he ran for president, he could unseat Trump. The King of All Media joked back and forth with Baldwin about his summer gig and whether it would clash with a presidential campaign.
Don't expect to see Alec Baldwin on the ballot in 2020, but the actor says if he ran he would "absolutely win".
The comedian said that while he would have the "funniest, most exciting, most insane campaign", he is hopeful that "somebody great" will run instead.More news: Judge allows AT&T and Time Warner to merge
"I'm told she loves it", Baldwin continued. His impersonation - which won the actor an Emmy award past year - has drawn the ire of the president, especially on Twitter.
According to Alec Baldwin, while he can't actually run for the presidency, and doesn't even really want to, he hopes that someone else would take his position and do a great job.
"Where are you then?" added Stern, who then mocked Baldwin's game-show hosting duties.More news: Manchester United make a Positive Start in the Transfer Window
"There are so many things that this country needs to do that are so obvious", he added.
"Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his bad impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony".
In the very same interview with Howard Stern, the actor also went on to suggest that Donald Trump's meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un was little more than a cover-up to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.More news: White House aide apologises over ‘special place in hell’ comment
