The Baldwin brothers are going to war over Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Actor Stephen Baldwin joined the FOX Business Networkâ€™s Maria Bartiromo to discuss why heâ€™s at odds with his brothers over the presidential election.
â€œMaria, I was going to ask you to like slap me around on your show today because Iâ€™m in a little bit of a Twitter war with my brother, but itâ€™s not serious, we are having fun, we are having our opinionsâ€¦Iâ€™m for Trump [and] Alec and Billy [are] for Mrs. Clinton â€“ thatâ€™s great,â€ he said.
But Stephen says heâ€™s â€œseeing sizeable push back.â€
â€œWhen my brother Billy jokes around and said my dad, if he were alive heâ€™d slap you upside the head for supporting Trumpâ€¦Boy those Democrats are so violent,â€ joked Baldwin.
He also discussed how his brother took him on while impersonating Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live.
â€œI had a sense that something like that was coming but that all gets back to something I said at the third debate, somebody said to me, â€˜you like your brotherâ€™s Trump impersonation?â€™ The truth is, I love the impersonation, itâ€™s funnyâ€¦What I said in that response to that question was, â€˜what I donâ€™t think is funny is how they are mocking this whole reality of this election. I donâ€™t think this election is very funny. I think the stakes are way too high.â€™"
When it comes to whatâ€™s most important to him during this election, he said, â€œWhatâ€™s going to drive life and the quality of life in this country to a better place quickly is the economy. So many people are suffering.â€
And he thinks that Trump is the guy to get the U.S. economy on the right track. However, when it comes to discussing his views with his brothers, Baldwin said, â€œI donâ€™t try to beat a dead horse here. If Alec and Billy donâ€™t see the corruption or if they are willing to look the other way like so many other people, thatâ€™s on them.â€
