    But there was nothing funny about the comedian's message.

    "It is time to overthrow the government of Donald Trump," he said. "Not in any violent or unlawful way."

    It was a call for Americans to vote.

    "Let's make America great again by making Donald Trump a casino operator again."

    When asked if he would run for office, Baldwin responded that he wouldn't. He joked that his wife told him she would divorce him if he did.

    "I've always wanted to do that. I've always dreamed of doing that..." he said.

    Baldwin says he's not sure any of the current potential Trump opponents are up for the task, but hopes someone materializes soon.

    "To me, every day I wake up, I still am horrified and I feel like I'm in some dream that Trump is the President of the United States. I almost can't even say it."
