Hailey Baldwin doesn’t even talk about politics with her Trump-supporting dad anymore

2018 Billboard Music Awards Arrivals

True story: I always forget which Baldwin brother fathered Hailey Baldwin. Like, I’m always pretty sure that Alec Baldwin is not her dad, but which Baldwin brother is her dad? Billy? Stephen? Daniel? As it turns out, Stephen Baldwin is her dad. Stephen Baldwin is the “conservative” Baldwin – Alec is the hardcore Democrat and Stephen is basically a Trump-supporting Deplorable. This is the most interesting thing about Hailey Baldwin, who is otherwise a small dollop of mayonnaise. Hailey knows that she’s pretty boring, which is why she ended up talking about all of the famous men in her life, from Justin Bieber to Shawn Mendes to all of the Baldwin family political drama. Some highlights from Hailey’s interview in The Times:

She dated Justin Bieber, then they barely spoke after their breakup: “Justin and I were friends for a long time. I met him when I was really young and he was one of my best friends. Everybody knows that at a certain point in time that turned into something else, but that just happens when you’re 18, 19. It was what it was…we went through a long period of time when we weren’t friends. We didn’t speak for quite some time and there was a lot of weirdness that went on” but that “we’ve moved past that.”

Shawn Mendes is not her boyfriend: “We hang out and he’s super-lovely and a very, very nice young gentleman. But I am single. The dating pool is small. It’s rare to find somebody that has the same ideas and morals as me. I have found people like that before, though, which is refreshing.”

She hated school: “I hated school. I only liked health and science. I had a hard time focusing. I had really bad ADD and I think I still do,. I have to be occupied. I respond well to having a schedule. As a child who was all over the place and bouncing off the walls, doing ballet for 12 years taught me to be disciplined, and my job now forces me to be disciplined. You have to keep it together or you fail.”

On the Baldwin-family political drama: “That was a very hurtful situation for me. I love my father, he’s an amazing dad, but we so strongly disagreed on [the election]. He and my sister strongly disagreed on it. My sister’s husband, like everyone on our side, just doesn’t agree with him. We don’t talk about it now. It’s not worth the argument.”

For one, I sort of get how she’s between a rock and a hard place with her dad and politics – it’s easy enough to shut out your Deplorable second cousin, but when it’s your dad and he’s out there, MAGA-ing for the world to see… it must be horrible, for her and everybody else in the family. As for Shawn Mendes… I really don’t get what they’re doing. They’re clearly dating – no one attends the Met Gala together as “just friends.” I feel like Mendes is the one who doesn’t want to put a label on it, and that makes me think he might be one of those guys.

Last thing: THE DATING POOL IS NOT SMALL. Especially for a young, attractive blonde woman. Hailey could literally date anyone, she just chooses to only “see” one small dating pool. Branch out, meet new people and stop dating your friends’ exes and the guys you grew up with in LA. Travel, get an education, get out of your bubble and you’ll see that the dating pool is actually quite large.

    She is so young but looks dead in the eyes and I don’t see how she is a model nothing she would wear would make me run out if I could afford it to purchase it.

  5. Kimma1216 says:

    She definitely looks like her fathers and uncles, but I think she is pretty!

  6. lucy2 says:

    I didn’t realize she was one of those Baldwins, for some reason I thought she was a Real Housewife franchise person. I can’t keep up.

    This young Hollywood pack has rotated each other so much it’s a cesspool. Kim and Reggie dated,ten Kim married Kanye who dated Amber then she had a fling with Reggie. Hailey dated Bieeber then Kourtney dated Bieber who had dated Sofia Richie and now she is with Scott,Kourtneys ex. Selena also dated Bieber,then dated her friends ex The weekend. Let’s not get started on the China,Tyga,Rob and Kylie square. Now Kylie is with Travis who was once with one of her friends. Ughh

    I love the “small dollop of mayonnaise.” Such a great description.

    My father was all Trump but luckily I was able to pull him to the other side & ultimately his vote did not go to him (I like to give myself credit but I think he started seeing all the holes in Trumps stupid words). He may have ended up “winning” the election but at least my father & I can continue to agree on all the reasons why its so wrong. If it had gone the other way around I can only imagine how dramatically it would have changed our relationship

      That story gives me hope! Thank you for sharing (and for pulling your dad back from the brink).

    My parents and my in laws are trump supporters. I’ve talk about how my FIL is way too far gone and his meek wife just does and says whatever he does. He still tried talking politics with us and we just try and ignore it best we can. My parents have stopped talking so much about it because I think thet get that we sent fans of Trump. It’s really really hard though. My dad was like my hero and I thought he knew everything and was just the best and these last few years have been so upsetting with my respect for him chipping away. My in laws and my parents love us and our children every much and treat us every well so it’s so not worth getting into an argument about it. We just ignore it anytime it comes up.

      Mel, my husband’s extended family are trump worshippers. When one of his cousins posted a link about California banning the Bible,I posted a snopes link and another cousin spoke down to me like a little kid. They now know I’m a liberal (not ashamed) but they are utterly ignoring me on FB.

      • Mel M says:

        It’s the worst right? My FIL is a trump worshiper for sure. Even if you try and reason with them or show them evidence that what Fox News and trump day is wrong or straight up lies they will never ever believe you.

    Wait — which girl is the daughter of Alec and Kim Basinger?

  12. Misty says:

    I love my parents. I don’t have to agree with their political views to do it. It’s that simple for me. It’s not hard, and that’s mostly because there is more to life than Donald Trump and my dislike of him. I still share my views. They disagree with me or I disagree with them, but at the end of the day it’s not hard to love them because to be honest life is too short to be that pissed off.

    “small dollop of mayonnaise,” lol. also, she’s just so… beige.

    those baldwin genes, tho. damn. not all of them are interesting, but they are pretty.
