Alec Baldwin said he would win against Trump if he ran against in 2020.
Technically, it was Howard Stern’s idea. But Alec Baldwin was right there with him.
“I’ve got a name for you: Alec Baldwin,” the SiriusXM host told his guest on Monday during a discussion about who the Democrats will run against Donald Trump in 2020.
“If I ran, I would win,” Baldwin replied, confidently. “I would absolutely win. One thousand percent.” The only two things stopping him, he joked, are his wife’s disapproval and his role as host of The Match Game on ABC.
“Why don’t you run for president as Donald Trump?” Stern suggested. And again, Baldwin, who is now best known for his Emmy-winning portrayal of Trump on Saturday Night Live, repeated his assertion.
“If I ran for president, I would win. Hands down, I would win,” he said. “It would be the funniest, most exciting, craziest campaign.” Hell, they could just hold the presidential debates on SNL and then the show wouldn’t even have to parody them.
Let’s hope the Dems choose Baldwin for their candidate.
