Alec Baldwin Blasts Trump in Sunday Twitter Battle

President-elect Donald Trump has taken to Twitter again this weekend to dress down another actor: Alec Baldwin.

“I watched parts of Saturday Night Live last night. It is a totally one-sided, biased show – nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?” tweeted Trump on Sunday morning.

Baldwin did his famous Trump impersonation on the long-running NBC show on Saturday in a sketch that poked fun at Trump being in over his head as the future leader of the free world.

To Trump’s criticism, Baldwin shot off a string of tweets on Sunday, giving the president-elect some unsolicited advice on how to proceed as the next commander-in-chief, saying, in part, “You know what I would do if I were Prez? I’d be focused on how to improve the lives of AS MANY AMERICANS AS POSSIBLE.”

Baldwin has been a vocal detractor of Trump and publicly supported Hillary Clinton in the run up to the Nov. 8 election.

This comes just a day after Trump demanded on the social media platform that the cast of hit Broadway show “Hamilton” apologize for a speech they gave to Vice President-elect Mike Pence.

This isn’t the first time Trump has criticized Baldwin, whose impression of the future president gained prominence during the election.

Here is Sunday’s exchange in sequential order:



“…@realDonaldTrump You know what I would do if I were Prez? I’d be focused on how to improve the lives of AS MANY AMERICANS AS POSSIBLE,” wrote Baldwin in his second Twitter reply.

“…@realDonaldTrump I’d be focused on improving our reputation abroad, including actually fighting for freedom and not just oil,” he added next.

“…@realDonaldTrump I would make appointments that encouraged people, not generate fear and doubt.”

And finally, Baldwin wrote: “@realDonaldTrump I could go on. You want more advice, call me. I’ll be at SNL.”
