Alec Baldwin has a message for Melania Trump.

In the wake of her controversial outfit choice last week — she made a surprise visit to Texas to witness the migrant-children crisis wearing a green Zara parka with the words “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?” emblazoned on the back — Baldwin tweeted a pointed message at the First Lady.

“Dear Melania — We know what you’re thinking. What you’re feeling,” he wrote. “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.”

“We have a chair waiting for you in the @nbcsnl make-up room,” added Baldwin, who famously spoofs President Donald Trump on the NBC sketch comedy series. (Melania has been played by Cecily Strong.)

Social media erupted over Melania’s jacket, calling it “tone deaf” — but her communications director, Stephanie Grisham, insisted that the jacket had “no hidden message.”

“It’s a jacket. There was no hidden message,” Grisham said in a statement. “After today’s important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn’t going to choose to focus on her wardrobe (Much like her high heels last year).”

President Trump weighed in, tweeting that her jacket was a message for the “fake news media.”

“Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!” he said.
