(Sidebar: Hamm, a Missouri native, wore a St. Louis Cardinals ball cap when he arrived for the interview.)
Hamm described seeing Trump Sr. briefly at a “Saturday Night Live” party after the show Trump hosted during the presidential campaign.
“He was with Bill O’Reilly,” Hamm told the Times. “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. 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.’ It was a very weird night. It was the shortest I’ve ever stayed at an ‘SNL’ after-party.”
Welp, Don Jr. didn’t like Hamm’s “tall” tale.
“Pro tip: If you have to tell others you’re an alpha ... you’re not,” the First Son tweeted Friday.
The Trump sons clearly think of their father as an alpha male.
Back when that controversial “Access Hollywood” tape emerged in which their dad bragged about groping women, Eric Trump chalked it up to banter from an “alpha.”
“I think sometimes when guys are together they get carried away, and sometimes that's what happens when alpha personalities are in the same presence. At the same time, I’m not saying it's right. It's not the person that he is,” Eric said.
Vanity Fair debated whether Hamm, O’Reilly or Trump won the battle of the tall dudes at that “SNL” after-party.
“The question in the end is, who won?” Vanity Fair’s Hollywood columnist Richard Lawson wrote. “Does anyone ever win in this sort of a thing? Well, yeah, sometimes.
“We say it’s Hamm who came out victorious this time, because he is now making a joke of it in a New York Times interview.”
