First lady Melania Trump is setting the record straight on Alec Baldwin’s “bizarre” claim that she secretly loves his President Trump impression on “Saturday Night Live.”
“This is a scoop I have for you, and I saved this for you, Brian Lehrer,” Mr. Baldwin said. “Someone told me, who is friends with someone in the White House, or formerly in the White House, that Melania Trump loves ‘SNL’ and she loves my impersonation.”
He claimed that the first lady told a top official, “That’s exactly what he’s like.”
Stephanie Grisham, the office of the first lady’s director of communications, said the claim isn’t true.
Mr. Baldwin won a Primetime Emmy for his portrayal in September.
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),” was released Tuesday.
