Actor Stephen Baldwin told The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday he has been treated poorly in Hollywood because he supports President Donald Trump and because he believes in Jesus.

"Who do I take more persecution from, Trump or Jesus? [Laughs.] That's an interesting question, my friend," Baldwin said when THR reporter Paul Bond asked whether his Christianity or his support for Trump hurt him more.

"I'm certainly happy we can giggle about it. Humor was invented by Jesus. Please put that in the interview, so all those fabulous people in Hollywood can read that Baldwin said Jesus invented humor.

"But this is why I'm doing American Pilgrimage, because we all connect through humor, but we're losing that joy, that irony of laughing. Let me tell you something: I'm not a Bill Clinton fan, but every time I see video of him playing the saxophone on 'The Tonight Show,' I smile, because it's a great moment."

Stephen told THR he has not spoken to older brother Alec since the election, and that was Alec's choice.

"We grew up in a dumb-jock, competitive, 'Friday Night Lights' kind of environment – and I'm sorry, Paul, but my guy won. Sorry. That's what happened," he said.
