Alec Baldwin said he's down to fill in for Trump at the White House Correspondents' Dinner


President Trump said last month he would skip the White House Correspondents' Dinner. 

Conveniently, Alec Baldwin said he's down to fill in for Trump during an interview on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Wednesday night.  

Almost immediately after Trump's announcement, fans of Baldwin and his wildly popular impersonation of Trump started calling for him to replace the president. It seems he might have heard those calls.

It should be the one the president hates seeing do it the most. And that's undoubtedly you.
Jimmy Kimmel, on Baldwin

When asked if he was lobbying to replace Trump, Baldwin responded, "Well, I wouldn't say I'm not lobbying."  He also acknowledged that many other Trump impersonators were fighting for that honor. 

Trump has said Baldwin's portrayal of him "stinks."

Zach Braff led the charge for Baldwin to replace Trump early on.

George Takei followed suit.

And so did Michael Moore.

On Wednesday, Baldwin also revealed he was working on a parody memoir of Trump's first year in office.
