Here’s a thought: Alec Baldwin could run for president, and Donald Trump could play him on “Saturday Night Live.”
That’s the alternate reality that was knocking around in fans’ heads this weekend after Baldwin raised an image of him running for president on Twitter. ”Think of how entertaining debates would be,” he tweeted on his AB Foundation account.

That’s all fans needed to hear, with many begging him to “do it.”

Some were worried about who could replace Baldwin on “SNL,” but the solution was obvious.

But a handful were, frankly, not very excited about the idea. “I don’t want entertainment. I want a REAL president,” tweeted one.
Love ya Alec but I dont want to see someone from showbiz in the presidency ever again in my lifetime. Twice has been 3x times too many.— Michael MacGowan (@MichaelKBlack9) October 21, 2017
