Stinky or not, Alec Baldwin certainly has a thicker skin than the guy he impersonates every week: Saturday Night Live‘s man who would be Trump re-tweeted (sans comment) the Donald’s now viral criticism of the actor and the “boring and unfunny” Saturday Night Live.
But if Baldwin restrained himself from zingers, other celebrities and notables couldn’t resist. Let’s start with Trump’s mini-review to set up the inevitable punchlines.
Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me.Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!

South Park's Family Guy episode was funny. So was SNL. If I can take it, a Presidential candidate can. Sack up. https://t.co/mwWdoaetsP

I agree with Trump. Didn't see last night's SNL but I saw Alec Baldwin's impression last season & it was gross, unfunny & he looked awful! pic.twitter.com/x7G0moT17k
