Who Will Host 'Saturday Night Live' Season 44? Alec Baldwin Wants Melania Trump to Join Him For Donald Trump Impersonation

It's been a while since Alec Baldwin blessed Saturday Night Live fans with his impeccable impersonations of President Donald Trump. There's a possibility when SNL returns viewers will finally be reunited with the award-winning actor, who landed an Outstanding Supporting Actor Emmy for his incredible mockery of the president in 2017, and he's already got an idea of who he'd like to appear on-screen with him during Season 44—Melania Trump.

The 60-year-old appeared on Extra on Thursday night and begged the first lady to make an appearance on the SNL stage. "We're dying for Melania," he said.

"Melania, please, please, will you become the Eleanor Roosevelt of your generation? You'll become the most important first lady… Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Kennedy, Melania Trump!" Baldwin begged. "Come join us, Melania, you will not regret it."

While the White House has never confirmed the first lady watches SNL, Baldwin told Howard Stern that he's heard the president's wife is a fan of his Donald Trump impersonations. "I'm told she loves it," Baldwin said during an interview on Stern's radio show in June.

"More than one person, now a second person has come to us and said, yeah it's true. She watched SNL. She watched it online and she laughed and said, 'That's him! That's him!'" Baldwin continued.

As for the former real estate mogul, Donald Trump—no surprise—he's not a fan. The president has slammed SNL on more than one occasion, calling it a "boring and unfunny show" in various Twitter rants over the last years. Donald Trump also previously tweeted Baldwin's portrayal of him "stinks."

Perhaps Donald Trump's strongest criticism of Baldwin's imitation of him came following an interview of Baldwin with The Hollywood Reporter in March. Baldwin admitted playing the role was not much fun considering all the havoc the president has wreaked on the nation since winning the 2016 election. "Every time I do it now, it's like agony," he told the magazine.

After catching wind of the comment, Trump lambasted Baldwin on Twitter, writing: "Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch. Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!!"

Of course, Baldwin, who rarely ever backed down from a war of words with Donald Trump, replied almost instantly and noted his parodies wouldn't be ending anytime soon. "Agony though it may be, I'd like to hang in there for the impeachment hearings, the resignation speech, the farewell helicopter ride to Mara-A-Lago," he tweeted. "You know. The Good Stuff. That we've all been waiting for."

Saturday Night Live returns to NBC with Season 44 on September 29 at 11:30 p.m. ET.
