Alec Baldwin’s parody of President-elect Donald Trump could be the heavyweight actor’s most important role yet – but Trump himself definitely isn’t seeing the funny side.
Saturday Night Live kicked off their latest show with a skit making fun of Trump’s prolific tweeting during a time when, you know, he probably has more pressing things to deal with.
The sketch shows Baldwin’s Trump and Kate McKinnon’s Kellyanne Conway in a security briefing, with Trump retweeting random messages instead of listening to his advisors fill him in on Syria.
Within an hour of the show airing, guess who was commenting?
Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can't get any worse. Sad

President-elect Trump called the show “unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse. Sad.”
Shall we call that a one-star review?
Baldwin has a right of reply of course.
Release your tax returns and I'll stop.

Isn’t 2016 politics remarkable?
