Alec Baldwin, who plays President Donald Trump on NBC’s Saturday Night Live appeared on the Howard Stern Show and claims that if he ran for President in 2020, he would defeat President Trump.
In the interview, Baldwin says that he can only think of one or two names that can actually beat Trump. Stern jumps in and says “I can think of one name, Alec Baldwin”.
“If I ran, I would win… Hands down, I would win. It would be the funniest, most exciting, most crazy campaign.”
Though Baldwin’s idea sounds like a joke at first — “I’ve gotta do Match Game!” he suddenly remembers, referencing his current gig as the host of ABC’s summer game show — he later becomes more thoughtful about the idea of running for president, shooting down Stern’s insinuation that he is “the hope of the Democratic Party.”
“I’m only saying [I would run] because people don’t really have a sense of who’s going to come up [on the Democrats’ side],” Baldwin continues. “Somebody great’s going to come up, I hope. But the only reason I say that is because I’d love to run for that kind of position, to have things be very common sense. There’s so many things this country needs to do that are so obvious.”
