Alec Baldwin says he’s heard from a White House insider that Melania Trump “loves” his impersonation of President Trump on “Saturday Night Live,” and agrees that “that’s exactly what he’s like.”
“Someone told me — who’s friends with someone in the White House, or formerly in the White House — that Melania Trump loves ‘SNL’ and she loves my impersonation,” Baldwin, said on WNYC’s “The Brian Lehrer Show” during a Monday interview.
According to the 59-year-old actor, the first lady “told this person, very high up in the White House brass there, that, ‘That’s exactly what he’s like.’”
Baldwin, who won an Emmy Award in September for his searing portrayal of Trump on SNL, said Trump “is horrified and beside himself that his wife actually thinks it’s funny.”
“That is not true, which is why Mr. Baldwin has no actual names to go with his bizarre assertion,” said a spokeswoman for the first lady in a statement to ITK.
Trump slammed Baldwin’s impersonation, tweeting last December that the impression “just can’t get any worse” and said the show “unwatchable” and “not funny.”
