Alec Baldwin On 'Saturday Night Live' Impression: 'I Don't Hate Trump'

Alec Baldwin says he doesn't have a dislike for Donald Trump despite his impression on 'Saturday Night Live'.

"I don't hate Trump, but he's not somebody I admire," Baldwin said in an election day interview on WNYC's 'The Brian Lehrer Show'.

"You just watch him and try to see him, like a caricaturist who draws. This is an exaggeration. I almost sprained my jaw pushing my lower jaw forward to talk the way he does."

"They knew where they were headed with election coverage with it being as close as it was and all," he said. "When Lorne Michaels asked me, I said no. I thought, I don't want do that. I don't think I can. But you get lucky, and I think people were ready to take in that version of him, which is so aggressive."

"One of my greatest joys is that I got to do it with Kate McKinnon," he added. "She is just this staggering talented woman. And she's smart, because she mixes the sweet and the sour in there."

Baldwin also gave his thoughts on Trump's path to the nomination.

"The Apprentice was a huge success, and Trump was a huge television star who managed to trick people into thinking he was the guy from the show," Baldwin said. "So that to me was the miracle of this candidacy, that he was able to fake everyone out into believing that he really is that guy from The Apprentice."

Incidentally, Baldwin may be doing a lot more of Trump with the former 'Apprentice' host being named President elect of the United States.
