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.
