A spokesperson for Melania Trump snapped back at Alec Baldwin Monday after he claimed that the first lady “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,” a spokesperson told ITK following the “Saturday Night Live” star’s comments during an interview Monday on WYNC’s “The Brian Lehrer Show.” (RELATED: Mocking Trump Gives ‘SNL’ Highest Ratings In 22 Years)
“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,” the 59-year-old actor explained during the radio show.
Baldwin added, that the first lady reportedly “told this person, very high up in the White House brass there, that, ‘That’s exactly what he’s like.’ Apparently, Trump is horrified and beside himself that his wife actually thinks it’s funny.”
The “30 Rock” star has seen his career skyrocket since he started mocking the president for over a year now on the late-night sketch comedy. He has previously stated it has given the actor more attention than he has ever received in his entire career.
He was on the show to promote his Trump parody book that recently came out called, “You Can’t Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story of My Fantastic First Year as President Donald J. Trump (A So-Called Parody).”
