Stephen Baldwin brands brother Alec's Trump act on Saturday Night Live 'not funny'

Stephen Baldwin is not a fan of his brother, Alec's, impersonation of Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, saying "I don't think it is very funny".

Stephen Baldwin spoke with CBSN after the third and final debate in Las Vegas about his brother's take on Trump.

"He's got the voice down very well. I think it's getting a little too nasty right now," Stephen Baldwin said. "I don't want to be a party pooper here, but I don't think it's very funny."

Trump has also let it be known that he does not think Alec Baldwin has captured him at all.


"Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me. Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!" tweeted Trump over the weekend.

Baldwin, a born-again evangelist and father of model Hailey Baldwin, told The Christian Post why he was supporting Trump for president.

"I've said this about Donald Trump, in my two experiences with him doing Celebrity Apprentice, I found him to be actually behind-the-scenes a pretty regular Joe guy. Down to earth, a father, a husband and a businessman," he said. "I think many people don't understand that Donald Trump has spent his life and career building his brand a certain way in business and that's kind of what everybody's use to.

"Don't get me wrong, he still says things in a way that are very brash and harsh and sometimes controversial, other times he just says some things the wrong way. I don't think there's a lot of people that would debate that," he said. "Another motivation for me is I believe that he would enact and support bringing the country back to that moral code. That is that religious freedom for Christians to be able to have prayer back in school if they so choose.

"I wholeheartedly believe Mr. Trump is the type of individual that will stand for those things. He is a Christian. That is something very personal to him and I respect that," he said.

Alec Baldwin is the eldest of the four Baldwin brothers at 58, while Stephen is the youngest at 50. Daniel and William are their middle brothers.
