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:

Why not?

The pair's differing stances on how to curb the global pandemic that's resulted in a national health crisis in the United States are already highlighting just how much more effective—and levelheaded—a Biden presidency would be.

President Donald Trump's hatred of the late Republican Senator from Arizona, John McCain, was widely known even before McCain cast the decisive vote that saved the Affordable Care Act in 2017.

That hatred has only worsened since that vote, with Trump initially refusing to lower flags at half staff to honor him and even implying that McCain is in Hell.

Pastor and Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. came under fire late last month when he ordered faculty to return to the university and gave students the option to return, despite the mounting health crisis in the United States.

Surely enough, it wasn't long before students began falling ill.

Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway may be one of President Donald Trump's most vocal defenders, but her husband—Republican lawyer George Conway—is decidedly not.

After months of speaking out against Trump on Twitter, Conway and three other prominent Republican strategists formed Project Lincoln late last year.
