Alec Baldwin mulls 2020 presidential run: ‘If I ran, I would win’

Alec Baldwin

On Monday, Baldwin-who won an Emmy previous year for his portrayal of Donald Trump on SNL-told Howard Stern that he could beat the current Commander in Chief if he made a decision to run for the top office in 2020.

Appearing on The Howard Stern Show last week, Baldwin spoke about how he could beat Trump in an election and that he learned the first lady enjoys his impression of her husband.

Donald Trump "broke the mold, he broke the box, and you don't necessarily have to be an experienced politician now to think that you are able to win the presidency", Navarro said. "Oprah. Alec Baldwin. And so, it's opened up the possibilities for people who may not be traditional politicians but who are interested".

"If I ran for president, I would win".

The comedian said that while he would have the "funniest, most exciting, most insane campaign", he is hopeful that "somebody great" will run instead.

Baldwin then turned down Stern's claim that he is the "the hope of the Democratic Party".

"Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his bad impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony".

"I'd love to run for that kind of position to have things just be very common sense", he added. "There are so many things that this country needs to do that are so obvious".

"I'm told she loves it", he relayed.

Baldwin said he wants Democrats "to have a smart opposition to keep them on their toes".
