Just hours after Alec Baldwin’s impersonation of Donald Trump returned to “Saturday Night Live,” the president-elect took to Twitter to slam the show.
“I watched parts of @nbcsnl Saturday Night Live last night,” Trump wrote on Sunday morning. “It is a totally one-sided, biased show — nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?”
Baldwin didn’t mince words in his response, though, saying, “Equal time? Election is over. There is no more equal time. Now u try 2 b Pres + ppl respond. That’s pretty much it.”
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.

“You know what I would do if I were Prez?” he continued. “I’d be focused on how to improve the lives of AS MANY AMERICANS AS POSSIBLE … I’d be focused on improving our reputation abroad, including actually fighting for freedom and not just oil.” He then added, “I would make appointments that encouraged people, not generate fear and doubt.”
During this weekend’s episode of SNL, Baldwin, who has portrayed Trump in episodes during the election mocking the debates and other election news, portrayed a president-elect Trump seemingly with no plan for the country, asking Siri for advice on how to defeat ISIS and scrapping campaign promises left and right before finally just asking Mike Pence to run everything for him.
