"I would absolutely win", Baldwin admits rather confidently.

All righty. Here we are in topsy-turvy land where Alec Baldwin says he'd win if he ran for president.

Baldwin, who lampoons Trump on "Saturday Night Live" and is an outspoken critic of him and the Republican Party, was jokingly put up for the White House bid by shock jock Howard Stern on Monday.

To run for office is something that I want to do", Baldwin said at the time, but added that campaign "doesn't seem to be practical with my lifestyle and my children.

Could Alec Baldwin go from impersonating the president to becoming the president?

Despite his confidence in a potential run, Baldwin said he hopes a good candidate emerges to campaign against Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

And, after the f-bombs at the Tonys on Sunday night, it looks like De Niro is staying true to his word about speaking out. He said in Toronto: "I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behaviour of my president". "It's a disgrace.

Baldwin also said his campaign would be "the funniest, most exciting, most insane campaign". His impersonation - which won the actor an Emmy award past year - has drawn the ire of the president, especially on Twitter.

"I'm only saying that because people don't really have a sense of who's going to come up", he said.

Baldwin did say, however, that he would love to run for that type of position.

"Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his bad impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. There are so many things that this country needs to do that are so obvious".
