Alec Baldwin recently won an Emmy for his role as President Trump on Saturday Night Live. The actor now claims that First Lady Melania Trump is a fan of his impersonation. The truth? WRONG!
From The Hill:
Alec Baldwin: Melania Trump ‘loves my impersonation’
Alec Baldwin says he’s heard from an insider that Melania Trump “loves” his impersonation of President Trump on “Saturday Night Live,” though the first lady’s office denies it.
“Someone told me — who’s friends with someone in the White House, or formerly in the White House — that Melania Trump loves ‘SNL’ and she loves my impersonation,” Baldwin, 59, said on WNYC’s “The Brian Lehrer Show” during a Monday interview.
According to Baldwin, the first lady “told this person, very high up in the White House brass there, that, ‘That’s exactly what he’s like.’”

Melania Trump sets Alec Baldwin straight about his impersonation of her husband
A spokesperson for the first lady fired back at the actor after he claimed that she “loves my impersonation” of President Donald Trump.
“That is not true, which is why Mr. Baldwin has no actual names to go with his bizarre assertion,” the spokeswoman told The Hill on Monday.

Alec Baldwin made unsubstantiated claim that Melania Trump likes his ‘SNL’ impression
As The Washington Post notes, Donald Trump has been very vocal about his distaste for the constant parodies of him from the long-running sketch show, and has even commented on Baldwin’s performance directly on Twitter.
“Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable!” he said in December of 2016. “Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse. Sad.”
Silly Alec. Next time, name the source.
