Saturday Night Live certainly needed a Donald Trump this year, so they went to 16-time host, 30 Rock veteran and deft impressionist Alec Baldwin. This weekend will mark his fourth consecutive SNL in the role, which he's signed up to play all season.

So what does 50-year-old Republican Stephen Baldwin think of his 58-year-old brother's role? “Well he’s got the voice down very well," he told CBS News at Wednesday night's final presidential debate. "I think it’s getting a little too nasty right now."

Baldwin, whose credits include The Usual Suspects and The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas, went on:

"I said this before, I'll say it again: What do I think about Alec Baldwin's impersonation of Donald Trump and SNL and everything they're doing? 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. 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. We have never had this much stagnation in our economy in...God only knows how long, I don't know exactly the numbers. But...it's just...there's no fooling around now."

Trump's not a fan of Alec Baldwin's impression, either:
