"We have to get rid of him," actor says, and also defends his defense of Woody Allen.
"Every time I do it now, it's like agony. Agony. I can't," he told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview published Thursday.
"If things don't go in the right direction for the midterms ... I could go out on the street, stand on any corner and tap 10 people on the shoulder. And all 10 of them, in all likelihood,would be more qualified — ethically, morally, intellectually and spiritually — than Trump," he continued. "I'll vote for Mitt Romney. I don't care. Anybody over this guy. It doesn't matter. We have to get rid of him."
In fact, Baldwin even described getting Trump out of office as "another project" he has in the works, and plans to become more involved in American politics to make it happen.
"I was the keynote speaker at the Democratic Dinner in Iowa, and I'm gonna go do a couple more of those this year," he said. "My wife and I agreed that we're gonna give it everything we have. And then if, God forbid, he wins again in 2020, I'm wondering can I host a game show in Spain."
Baldwin was promoting his new ABC talk show "Sundays with Alec Baldwin," which premieres a sneak-peek episode after the Oscars this Sunday and will return with more episodes later this year. While talking about the hour-long interview series, he also defended his defense of friends Woody Allen and James Toback, both of whom have been accused to serious sexual misconduct.
"Right now, no one has been prosecuted. Nobody. Is that going to change or are we going to stay in the realm where it's just accusations and condemnations being played out in the press?" he said. "But my inclination to want to defend my friends — who either A) I thought were innocent, which is Woody or B) I had no knowledge of what they did and I still have no knowledge of what they did, which is Toback — is a normal inclination."
"It's a normal inclination to want to rally by your friends up until the point that they are convicted of something," Baldwin continued. "If they're convicted of a crime, well then you're sad, and that's tragic, but they’ve got to go through that process. In the meantime, I hope that we see some manifestation of this beyond just social media."
And if you're wondering what the odds are that Baldwin will convince Allen to appear on his new talk show to talk about the allegations, don't hold your breath.
"I doubt there's any amount of money you could pay Woody to come on and talk about this stuff," Baldwin said. "He has already said everything he has to say."
