These two Dons just couldn’t get along.
“Mad Men” star Jon Hamm discussed an encounter he had with Donald Trump in 2015 where the now-President attempted to intimidate him — and Hamm wasn’t having it.
“He was with Bill O’Reilly. 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,” he told the New York Times in a profile this week.
“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.'”
Then-presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks as guest host during the monologue on “Saturday Night Live,” Saturday, Nov. 7, 2015.
Hamm, who played Don Draper on the popular AMC series, had attended the late night party, which followed the November 2015 episode that Trump hosted.
“It was a very weird night. It was the shortest I’ve ever stayed at an ‘SNL’ after-party,” Hamm continued.
The actor previously made an appearance in a video urging for the support of Planned Parenthood and speaking out against Trump’s proposed plans for health care back in June.
Hamm shared another story about being in the same room as Trump with Conan O’Brien back in 2011 where he recalled being at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner when former President Obama poked fun at Trump.
Celebrities who are against Donald Trump
“Watching that dude (Trump) who has no problem telling people what to do and giving people trouble, he didn’t take it very well,” Hamm said, laughing.
The actor later joined in on a shot at Trump by starring in an H&R Block ad, which fired back at a previous quote in which the President said he hoped to put the tax company out of business.
Hamm was joined by Jake Gyllenhaal in a fund-raiser for Hillary Clinton in Oct. 2016 — clearly publicizing his allegiances with someone other than Trump.
