Actor Alec Baldwin said he would “absolutely win” if he ran against Donald Trump for the presidency in 2020, calling him a “maniac” and “weird guy.”
Baldwin, who lampoons Trump on “Saturday Night Live” and is an outspoken critic of him and the Republican Party, was jokingly put up for the White House bid by shock jock Howard Stern on Monday.
“If I ran, I would win,” Baldwin told Stern. “I would absolutely win. 1,000 percent.”
“Hands down,” he added. “It would be the funniest, most exciting, most crazy campaign.”
He added he was not the “hope” of the Democratic Party, and he hoped someone great would emerge as the party’s standard-bearer.
“The only reason I say that is because I’d love to run for that kind of position to have things just be very common sense,” Baldwin said. “There’s so many things this country needs to do that are so obvious.”
Baldwin claimed in the same interview First Lady Melania Trump loves his SNL impression of her husband, according to anonymous White House insiders.
“She must know what a maniac he is and what a weird guy he is,” Baldwin said.
Baldwin has stated doing the Trump impression is “agony” and would do anything to see he is voted out of office.
“I’ll vote for Mitt Romney. I don’t care. Anybody over this guy. It doesn’t matter. We have to get rid of him,” he told the Hollywood Reporter
