Alec Baldwin has teased a presidential run.
The 59-year-old actor – who is recently known for lampooning Donald Trump on Saturday Night live – raise many eyebrows with an interesting tweet on Friday night.
From his Alec Baldwin Foundation account he wrote: ‘If I run for a President, think of how entertaining the debates would be.’
One-on-one: Alec Baldwin has teased a presidential run against Donald Trump
No doubt he had many tongues wagging as even aside his parody portrayal of Trump, he has been very vocal about his distaste for the 44th President of the US.
Baldwin recently spoke candidly about his Emmy-winning role mocking Trump in an interview with GQ Magazine.
‘I think the powers that be, the money behind the Republican party, they’ll have to get the smell out of the room so that Pence can be the runner in 2020. And the sooner they get rid of him the better,’ the Saturday Night Live star said.
The actor took home an Emmy for the Best Supporting Actor on SNL two weeks ago for his portrayal of the commander-in-chief.

Baldwin told GQ that he doesn’t believe Republicans will deal with much more from Trump.
‘How much more are they going to put up with? I don’t think they’ll put up with much more… I imagine he’ll resign.
‘I imagine they’ll cite health problems. There might be things that would present themselves so he’d be forced to. And I’m not just talking about tapes with hookers…
‘Putin is surrounded by a team of people who are ten moves ahead of everybody. If Trump f**ks them, they will just burn him to the ground. It’d kill him,’ Baldwin added.

Despite it all, Baldwin said that ‘one of the real tradegies for him, on a Shakespearean level, is that his name is ruined’.
‘His children are going to have to change their names when he gets out of the White House. Everything that he wanted to achieve, the opposite has resulted,’ the actor noted.
Donald Trump has previously criticized the NBC show as back in December he called it ‘totally unwatchable’ and a ‘hit-job’ – likely only adding to its allure for his opponents.
Around that time the 71-year-old businessman took a swipe at Baldwin’s portrayal.
Trump wrote: ‘Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse.’
