Alec Baldwin says 'black people love me' since playing Trump on 'SNL'

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

"She's a tragic front person for [the #MeToo] cause, and I say that because you don't stand much of a chance of getting where you want to be if you're going to arbitrarily alienate and excoriate innocent men", he said. Baldwin says the actress denied the allegation and called him to warn him about it. It's for this reason that Alec thinks Black people have been so into him lately. "I think it's because they're most afraid of Trump", Alec Baldwin told the Hollywood Reporter.

"Everywhere I go, black people go insane".

In April, Baldwin said the Trump administration is full of "pirates, whores and thieves".

"But what worries me is that this is a fire that needs constant kindling", he griped.

In the wide-ranging interview, done ahead of the premiere of his new talk show, the actor shared his complicated thoughts on the #MeToo movement, explained why "black people love [him]" and revealed which family member he isn't really talking to right now.
