Alec Baldwin: I’ve Heard Melania Loves My Trump Impersonation

Alec Baldwin says he’s heard from an insider that Melania TrumpMelania TrumpTrump ambassador pick faced complaints from female workers: report Trump lashes out at 'Fake News Media' over Mueller indictments Sanders rebuffs WaPo on Trump focusing on shooting responders: 'Very misleading' MORE> “loves” his impersonation of President Trump on “Saturday Night Live,” though the first lady's office denies it.

“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,” Baldwin, 59, said on WNYC’s “The Brian Lehrer Show” during a Monday interview.

According to Baldwin, the first lady “told this person, very high up in the White House brass there, that, ‘That’s exactly what he’s like.’”

Baldwin, an outspoken critic of the president, won an Emmy Award in September for his searing portrayal of Trump on NBC’s late-night sketch comedy show.

A representative of the first lady's office denied his claim in a statement to ITK.

"That is not true, which is why Mr. Baldwin has no actual names to go with his bizarre assertion," the spokeswoman said.

Trump — who guest hosted “SNL” in 2015 as a White House hopeful — has slammed Baldwin’s impersonation, tweeting last December that the impression “just can’t get any worse” and calling the show “unwatchable” and “not funny.”

“Apparently, Trump is horrified and beside himself that his wife actually thinks it’s funny,” Baldwin said Monday while promoting his new book with co-author Kurt Andersen, “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).”
