Alec Baldwin’s portrayal of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has gotten rave reviews from fans of “Saturday Night Live.” His skits with Kate McKinnon, who plays Hillary Clinton, have been instant viral hits during the new season.

But there’s at least one person who isn’t entirely impressed -- Baldwin’s younger brother, Stephen.

“He’s got the voice down very well. I think it’s getting a little too nasty right now,” Stephen told CBSN’s Vladimir Duthiers after the third and final presidential debate of 2016

“I don’t want to be a party pooper here, but I don’t think it’s very funny,” he continued. “Everybody’s got 20 days now to really do their homework.”

Baldwin went on to say he thinks this election is a very serious matter, and the issues facing our country shouldn’t be joked about. He has also said in the past he thinks Trump would make a good president.

This isn’t the first bad review the elder Baldwin was gotten for his performance. After the most recent episode of “SNL”, Trump himself tweeted that the skits are a “hit job,” and that Alec Baldwin “stinks.”

It’s worth noting that Trump praised “SNL” when he hosted the sketch show in November of 2015.
