Lara Trump Teams Up With Fox News’ Sean Hannity to Slam Alec Baldwin’s ‘Beating Trump Would Be So Easy’ Tweet

President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump teamed up with Fox News host Sean Hannity to bash actor and Donald Trump critic Alec Baldwin, who tweeted that it “would be so easy” to beat the president in the upcoming election.

Baldwin, who has impersonated Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live and has previous beef with Hannity, on Monday morning tweeted from his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter handle @ABFalecbaldwin: “If I ran for President, would you vote for me? I won’t ask you for any $. And I promise I will win. Beating Trump would be so easy. So easy. So easy.”

That night, Hannity brought up Baldwin’s attempts to be a talk radio host, and aired episodes from 2006 in which Baldwin made digs at him and got no callers into his show. Lara Trump, who is married to the president’s son Eric Trump and is a 2020 senior campaign adviser for the president, said she had “no idea” about the history between Hannity and Baldwin and ripped the latter’s 2020 bid tease.

“Well listen, if he wants to add his name to the hundred other people that are now running on the Democrat’s side trying to become president, you know what, we welcome the challenge,” she said of Baldwin.

“The funny thing is everyone thinks it’s so easy, everyone thinks it’s so easy to run for president, to run this country,” she said. “But it’s not that easy apparently to be a talk show host as you found out.”

Lara Trump continued: “The funny thing with him is you notice the only way he can get his name back out there is by bringing in the president. He’s obsessed with talking about President Trump because it’s the only way anybody pays attention to him.”

Hannity then asked her what she thought of “how radical left the Democratic Party has gone.”

“It’s actually very scary,” Lara Trump said. She then painted a picture of “someone who is running on socialism” who wants to “take over every single aspect of your life,” versus her father-in-law as president responsible for “record high stock markets, with the jobs pouring back into this country.”

“Guess what?” she said. “I think people are going to go in and vote for Donald Trump.”

Lara Trump added that the Trump campaign is “not worried” about anyone who has made a 2020 bid “because they’re making their case for us with all the nonsensical things you see coming out of that side.” She said Democrats continue to analyze special counsel Robert Mueller’s no collusion conclusion, and demand Donald Trump’s tax returns, “to distract.”

“The reality is the fight against Donald Trump for becoming president in 2020—I think they know is an impossible battle,” Lara Trump said.
