Alec Baldwin Stinks, Says Donald Trump; Peeved & Unshackled Candidate Says ‘SNL’ Is “Rigging Election”

Donald Trump’s over it. “Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me,” he tweeted this morning. “Time to retire the boring and unfunny show.”

And what does he think of Alec Baldwin, whose uncanny impression of the GOP candidate has infused the long-running comedy series with a jolt of life this season? “Stinks,” says Trump.

In keeping with his recent lambasting of the media, Trump now apparently lumps NBC’s SNL in with all the other election-riggers.


It’s difficult to say which SNL sketch set him off, but it could have been this one, or maybe this one. Given the show’s recent ratings boosts, Trump’s suggestions of retirement might get a bigger laugh at 30 Rock than anything since John Belushi.

And do yourselves a favor: Read the responses of his followers (not to be confused, necessarily, with fans) for some SNL-worthy ripostes. Like this one:
