President-elect Donald Trump has taken to Twitter again this weekend to dress down another actor: Alec Baldwin.
“I watched parts of
@nbcsnl 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:
Election is over. There is no more equal time. Now u try 2 b Pres + ppl respond. That's pretty much it.

@realDonaldTrump I would make appointments that encouraged people, not generate fear and doubt.”
And finally, Baldwin wrote: “
