Alec Baldwin has been a mainstay on “Saturday Night Live” these last couple years, playing Donald Trump in a way that clearly irritates the man himself. Though it’s highly unlikely that Trump will appear on “SNL” anytime soon (if ever again), Baldwin has extended an invitation to Melania Trump on Twitter.

“Come over to the light,” he beckons. “We will welcome you as a hero in ways you never imagined possible.” The full tweet:

“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.
