Alec Baldwin Fires Back at Donald Trump After ‘Saturday Night Live’ Diss

Alec Baldwin replied to Donald Trump's most recent criticism of Saturday Night Live in a Twitter rant on Sunday, November 20, shortly after the president-elect dissed the Emmy winner's portrayal of him.

"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?" Trump, 70, tweeted early Sunday morning.

Baldwin, 58, promptly responded with a series of tweets, writing, "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?" the comedian 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. I would make every effort 2 retrain Americans so 2 cre8 jobs. 1 way u make America gr8 again is 2 put it back 2 work. I would make appointments that encouraged people, not generate fear and doubt."

Baldwin concluded his lengthy message: "I could go on. You want more advice, call me. I'll be at SNL."

This isn't the first time Trump has fired back at the NBC comedy institution for its portrayal of him. Last month, he tweeted, "Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me. Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!"

Despite his comments, the real estate mogul has been a fixture on SNL for years. He most recently hosted the late-night sketch comedy show in November 2015.
