It’s been a weird month and a half for the First Lady of the United States. In the middle of May, Melania Trump went to the hospital for a procedure to treat a “benign kidney condition.” She then ended up staying there much longer than anticipated and wasn’t seen for weeks afterwards, prompting the public to come up with a myriad of theories as to where she was.

She then popped back into the spotlight with a tweeted photo and things seemed to be back to normal. Until last week, that is, when Melania wore that jacket to visit migrant children who were taken from their parents and detained in cages. Not a good look.

Many people criticized the move for being at the very least inconsiderate and at the most, a message of complete indifference to the torment of others. One person interpreted it differently, however. Alec Baldwin — AKA the more popular Donald Trump — sees it as a Trump subversion. He penned a very strange letter to Melania in tweet form to that effect.

He seems to read Melania’s “I don’t really care” statement as a message to her husband that she wants to leave him and join the anti-Trump fight. It’s possible, but it doesn’t seem like the most likely interpretation. And it’s even weirder that Baldwin used phrases like “quaking w anticipation” and “shuddering w a strange, newfound courage.”

At the end of the letter, he makes an offer to Melania to appear on Saturday Night Live alongside him. Now that would be a crazy cold open.

The actor followed up his initial tweet with a picture of himself and Mrs. Trump at an event in 2007. He added to the appeal, saying, “We have a chair waiting for you in the @nbcsnl makeup room.”

Last year, Alec Baldwin told Megyn Kelly that someone “in the know” informed him that Melania watches him on SNL and “loves” his Trump impersonation. The White House later denied it and called Baldwin’s claims “bizarre.” It’s hard to know which side is more reliable.

Will we see Melania playing herself opposite Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump on the next season of SNL? At this point, nothing would surprise us.
