As if President Donald Trump wasn't irate enough at Alec Baldwin's impersonation of him on Saturday Night Live, Baldwin upped his trolling game of Trump on Monday by teasing a hypothetical White House run against the incumbent Republican in 2020.
Trump himself could have written this tweet:
"If I ran for President, would you vote for me? I won’t ask you for any $. And I promise I will win. Beating Trump would be so easy. So easy. So easy."
"These tweets save me millions in polling," Baldwin added.
Could be fun.
Baldwin first floated the idea of challenging Trump on Howard Stern's radio show last year.
Baldwin was “1,000 percent sure” he would win “hands down," he said. “It would be the funniest, most exciting, most crazy campaign,” he joked.
It would be amazing, and we already have a pretty decent picture of how it would all go down.
Baldwin parodies Trump on Saturday Night Live, often angering the president to the point of lashing out on Twitter. In February, Trump called SNL a "Republican hit job" that "should be looked into."
Trump made a similar complaint last month and suggested that there should be "consequences" for entertainment outlets that make fun of him.
"Should Federal Election Commission and/or FCC look into this?" Trump added. 'There must be Collusion with the Democrats and, of course, Russia! Such one-sided media coverage, most of it Fake News. Hard to believe I won and am winning. Approval Rating 52%, 93% with Republicans. Sorry! #MAGA"
Baldwin should run as fake Trump challenging real Trump.
Some are over the whole celebrity presidency thing, though.
Maybe we can find a middle ground:
