Sorry Alec Baldwin, but Melania Trump is not a fan.
A spokesperson for the first lady fired back at the actor after he claimed that she “loves my impersonation” of President Donald Trump.
“That is not true, which is why Mr. Baldwin has no actual names to go with his bizarre assertion,” the spokeswoman told The Hill on Monday.
The “Saturday Night Live” star had made the remarks on WYNC’s “The Brian Lehrer Show” Monday.
“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 said in the interview.
The 59 year-old actor claimed the first lady “told this person, very high up in the White House brass there, that, ‘That’s exactly what he’s like.’”
Baldwin has been doing his impersonation of Trump for well over a year now on NBC’s late-night sketch comedy show and won an Emmy Award in September for his portrayal of Trump.
The president is not a fan, however, tweeting last year that the impression “just can’t get any worse” and calling the show “unwatchable.”
Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me.Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!

“Apparently, Trump is horrified and beside himself that his wife actually thinks it’s funny,” Baldwin claimed Monday.
The “30 Rock” star was promoting his new book, “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).”
