Conservative actor Stephen Baldwin said the election has taken a toll on his family, telling Fox News Sunday morning that he and his older brother Alec haven’t spoken since Donald Trump won the presidency.

“I haven’t even spoken to my own brother since the election,” the 50-year-old “The Usual Suspects” star said on “Fox & Friends.”

“So happy birthday, Alec! Love you!” he said.

Alec Baldwin, an outspoken liberal who impersonates the president on “Saturday Night Live,” turned 59 last week.

Asked if the election has “gotten in the way” of his family, Stephen Baldwin responded: “Well, yeah, this has been a tough election, you know?

“The Democratic side wanted what they wanted, and they lost,” he said. “So now what I’m excited about is how quickly all that community is going to come on board to support Donald Trump so he can make America great again.”

Stephen Baldwin, who came out in support of Mr. Trump in the primaries, also criticized his brother’s popular “SNL” impersonation.

“I think it’s funny in a bad way, which, is there such a thing, really?” he said. “Early on during the campaign, I thought that ‘SNL’ was getting a little too nasty.”

The younger Baldwin echoed similar sentiments in October when he told CBS News that his brother’s parody of the then-GOP nominee was getting “too nasty.”

In 2013, he was a contestant on Mr. Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” program. He finished in fifth place.
