"I've got a name for you: Alec Baldwin", Stern replies, prompting Baldwin to say, "If I ran, I would win..."

Before that, he also tweeted a cryptic message, saying: "If I run for a President, think of how entertaining the debates would be".

"Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his bad impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony".
