I’m a … diehard coke head.” He was a member of VH1’s reality television show, Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.

Alec Baldwin impersonates Donald Trump during a “We Stand United” anti-Trump rally on January 19, 2017 in New York City. Thousands of people gathered outside the Trump International Hotel in Manhattan to protest on the eve of Donald Trump’s inauguration as the 45th President of the United States. Baldwin regularly impersonates Trump on “Saturday Night Live.”

The brothers all have very different opinions on President Donald Trump.

While Stephen supported President Trump in the election, Alec and Billy did not.

Speaking to FOX Business before the election, Stephen said, “If Alec and Billy don’t see the corruption or if they’re willing to look the other way like so many other people, that’s on them.”

In a Tweet, Stephen said, “If my father were alive today (a veteran) He would be ashamed & disgusted of media biased & manipulation by people like @andersoncooper.” Billy fired back, “@StephenBaldwin7 @andersoncooper If our father were alive today… he’d smack you in the side of the head for supporting Donald Trump.”

Later on, Stephen said of Alec’s impersonation of Donald Trump, “Well [Alec’s] got the voice down very well. I think it’s getting a little too nasty right now… I don’t want to be a party pooper here, but I don’t think it’s very funny. I don’t think there’s anything funny about this election.”


5. Stephen Baldwin Did Not Attend the Roast
