Donald Trump isn’t alone in not liking Alec Baldwin’s spot-on impression of him on Saturday Night Live. It turns out that Alec’s younger brother Stephen isn’t a fan of it either.

“He’s got the voice down very well,” Stephen told CBS News at the third presidential debate in Las Vegas Wednesday. “I think it’s getting a little too nasty right now.”

He added: “I don’t want to be party pooper here, but I don’t think it’s very funny. I don’t think there’s anything funny about this election.”

Stephen, a Trump supporter, continued to focus on Election Day. “I think it’s very serious, very important. Young people, millennials, undecided voters — everybody’s got 20 days now to really start to do their homework and figure out who they think is gonna lead this country in the direction it needs to be, back on its feet economically.”

Trump, who sparred with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in the final debate Wednesday night, slammed Saturday Night Live for its sketch mocking the second presidential debate on Saturday.

“Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me. Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!” tweeted the former Celebrity Apprentice host on Sunday.

However, Alec does have a fan in the former Secretary of State, who called his impression “perfect.” “I can’t wait to see what else they’re going to do. His look, his scowling, his staring down then muttering his response, he was perfect,” Clinton recently told Extra.
