Even though SNL is on hiatus for the summer, Baldwin, who is known for playing Donald Trump on the legendary late-night sketch show, is already planning for the next season and hopes that the First Lady will join him.
In his open letter on Twitter, Baldwin wrote: “Dear Melania- We know what you’re thinking. What you’re feeling. You are quaking w anticipation. Shuddering w a strange, newfound courage. Come. Come over to the light. We will welcome you as a hero in ways you never imagined possible. And then do SNL w me. Sincerely, Alec.”
He followed up with a tweet of the two of them and the caption, “We have a chair waiting for you in the @nbcsnl make-up room.”
Even if she declines his invitation, we will always have Cecily Strong’s delightful Melania impression.
This comes after she was dragged for wearing a jacket that said “I REALLY DON’T DON’T CARE, DO U?” after visiting immigrant children at a detention center in Texas. Her jacket comes in the wake of the backlash of the Trump administration’s family separation policy. He has since signed an executive order ending the policy.
