Alec Baldwin's portrayal of Donald Trump on "Saturday Night Live" has been roundly praised by fans of the comedy show, but one of the actor's own brothers isn't laughing at the impression.
Stephen Baldwin, the youngest of four brothers, is a supporter of the Republican nominee and said late Wednesday night he's not amused by the imitations, despite the incredible success the skits have enjoyed in recent weeks.
"Well he’s got the voice down very well. I think it’s getting a little too nasty right now," Stephen Baldwin told CBS News. "What do I think about Alec Baldwin’s impersonation of Donald Trump and ‘SNL’ and everything they’re doing? I don’t want to be a party pooper here, but I don’t think it’s very funny. I don’t think there’s anything funny about this election."
This season, Alec Baldwin has been teaming up with comedian Kate McKinnon, who has impersonated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. The skits, many of which have focused on the presidential debates, have earned NBC millions of views online.
But for Stephen Baldwin, this election just isn't a joking matter. "Everybody’s got 20 days now to really do their homework," he said after the final presidential debate.
And the younger Baldwin has at least one other high-profile individual in his corner — the GOP candidate himself, who described the most recent episode of "SNL" as a "hit job" that "stinks."
