Key Words: The guy who plays Trump on TV says he’d ‘1,000%’ beat him in the 2020 election

Alec Baldwin won an Emmy in 2017 for his uncanny impersonation of President Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live.” Next up, winning the White House?

‘I would absolutely win—1,000%. Hands down. It would be the funniest, most exciting, craziest campaign.

—Baldwin

That’s his answer when Howard Stern brought up the notion of a Baldwin candidacy in an interview this week.

Lest you think/hope that Baldwin was joking, the actor previously told students at George Washington University in a speech last year that he’d make a “good president” and that running for office is “something that I want to do.” He acknowledged, however, that such a move doesn’t fit his current lifestyle.

As for the Stern interview, Baldwin said he’d bring “common sense” to the American political arena.

“The only reason I say that is because I’d love to run for that kind of position to have things just be very common sense,” he said. “There’s so many things this country needs to do that are so obvious.”

Watch this clip from the show:

Trump’s probably too busy to respond at the moment—North Korea and all—but don’t be surprised if he hits Twitter in the wee hours to take a swing at Baldwin. After all, these two have a history together:
