Alec Baldwin has invited Melania Trump on Saturday Night Live in the wake of controversy over a jacket she wore, in which it was written, “I really don’t care. Do u?”

The 60-year-old actor, who spoofs her husband Donald Trump on the NBC sketch comedy show, shared a tweet on Saturday, June 23, writing,

Dear Melania. We know what you’re thinking. What you’re feeling. You are quaking w anticipation. Shuddering w a strange, newfound courage. Come. Come over to the light. We will welcome you as a hero in ways you never imagined possible. And then do SNL w me. Sincerely, Alec.

Here's the tweet, check it out.

The eldest of the four Baldwin brothers then posted a photo taken with the First Lady of the United States in 2007 and wrote in the caption “We have a chair waiting for you in the @nbcsnl make-up room.”

Check it out.

Melania has previously been played by Cecily Strong on SNL, most recognizably in a takeoff of Beyoncé‘s single Sorry, called Melanianade.

As previously reported, on Thursday, June 21, Melania wore a $39 Zara jacket that read, “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?” when she went to McAllen, Texas.

Many people and celebrities were outraged by Melania's fashion choice but the first lady’s press secretary Stephanie Grisham says “there was no hidden message.”

The 72-year-old U.S. president later shared a tweet saying that his wife’s jacket referred to “the Fake News Media”.

He further added, “Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!”

Some sources also said that Melania was sending a secret message to her husband, whom porn star Stormy Daniels previously claimed of having an affair with shortly after the birth of Melania and Trump's son, Barron Trump.
