Actor Jon Hamm was profiled in the New York Times, and briefly discussed his run in with Donald Trump in 2016 when the then presidential candidate hosted Saturday Night Live.
The Mad Man star claimed that, during the after-party, Trump and Bill O’Reilly tried to do the “tall man thing” and Hamm wasn’t intimidated and blurted out, “I’m as alpha as you, let’s go.”
The talk turned to Donald J. Trump, whom he saw, briefly, at a “Saturday Night Live” party in Midtown after the episode hosted by Mr. Trump during the presidential campaign.
“He was with Bill O’Reilly,” Mr. Hamm said. “They’re both tall dudes. And I’m a tall dude. And they both do that tall-dude thing, which is try to intimidate you. And it doesn’t work on me. I’m like, ‘I’m as alpha as you. Let’s go. You’re not going to chest-bump me.’ It was a very weird night. It was the shortest I’ve ever stayed at an ‘S.N.L.’ after-party.”
Update: Donald Trump Jr checked in on Twitter and provided the actor with a dose of reality.
Pro tip: If you have to tell others you're an alpha… you're not. https://t.co/OwI6WYafwj
