It took all day, but Donald Trump rips Alec Baldwin, 'Saturday Night Live' on Twitter

President-elect Donald Trump may not like Saturday Night Live, but apparently he can't help but tune in.  

One day after going after Georgia congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis, Trump blasted Alec Baldwin's latest guest spot playing the president-elect, calling it "a complete hit job" and saying the show was just "really bad television." 

This is far from the first time Trump has weighed in on Baldwin's performance on SNL. In the past, he’s called the show “unwatchable” and “totally biased” and has said the actor's impersonation of him “just can’t get any worse.”

Regardless of Trump's thoughts, there been one constant in how SNL and Baldwin have handled Trump – the utter sense of disbelief that the reality TV star is going to become our next president.

It was a theme the show returned to this week, where Baldwin reprised his role as the president-elect to respond to the question on the minds of everyone.

"Yes, this is real life, this is really happening," said Baldwin’s Trump.

“On January 20th, I, Donald J. Trump, will become the 45th president of the United States,” Baldwin’s Trump said. “And then, two months later, Mike Pence will become the 46th.”

Trump certainly gave SNL a lot of material to work with. During his bizarre press conference earlier in the week, he enlisted paid staffers to applaud his answers, attacked a CNN reporter and called his network’s coverage “fake news,” and covered a table with prop folders he claimed were filled with important business documents.

But it was a salacious detail in an unverified 35-page dossier about an alleged compromising videotape that SNL chose to highlight first and often.

Baldwin’s Trump refused to answer any questions about the videotape, because “it didn’t happen, and it wasn’t as cool as it sounded.”

SNL also waded into questions about the repeal of Obamacare, with a reporter played by cast member Sasheer Zamata pressing Baldwin’s Trump on the notion that people could die if they lose their insurance.

“Listen, sweetheart, I’m about to be president — we’re all going to die,” Baldwin’s Trump responded.

 

During the show’s opening monologue, former cast member and 30 Rock star Tina Fey made a surprise appearance as a Princess Leia-esque hologram alongside Rogue One star and host Felicity Jones. Fey predicted that Trump would weigh in on the show. 

“No matter how it goes, the president of the United States will say that it’s sad and overrated,” Fey said. “It’s fine, no one cares.”
