Trump criticizes actor Alec Baldwin again

Alec Baldwin has been impersonating Donald Trump

Alec Baldwin says playing President Donald Trump on "Saturday Night Live" has turned into "agony" for him and adds he's working on "a project" to oust the commander-in-chief.

While I'm honestly the last person who should be giving anyone a hard time for making the odd typo, I'm willing to make an exception for the leader of the free world, Donald Trump, who recently jumped on social media to take a spray at his arch-rival, um, 'Alex Baldwin'. "Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch".

For his part, "Alex" responded on Twitter himself, with a three-part message that included a claim that Melania Trump asks Baldwin for SNL tickets.

Twenty-five minutes later, at 6:08 a.m., the president tried again. Baldwin was brought on for the persona during the 2016 presidential campaign and has continued to mock the sitting president.

And while I wouldn't go as far as to compare Baldwin and Hammond's overall talent, Hammond's Trump impression is better than Baldwin's.

Baldwin, a Democratic activist, received an Emmy award for his running parody a year ago on Saturday Night Live, or SNL.

In fact, Baldwin even described getting Trump out of office as "another project" he has in the works, and plans to become more involved in American politics to make it happen.

Some people love it, some people hate it, the portrayal still won Baldwin an Emmy and gave Baldwin a almost regular gig on Saturday Night Live.

"Agony thought it may be, I'd like to hang in there for the impeachment hearings, the resignation speech, the farewell helicopter ride to Mara-A-Lago".

Trump also complained to Matt Lauer in an interview that year that Baldwin's portrayal of him wasn't amusing. I like Alec, but his imitation of me is really mean-spirited and not very good ...

The president used to lash out fairly regularly against Baldwin and the show, but this is the first such barb in a while. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. "There is no more equal time".

Mr. Trump had refrained from remarking on the show on Twitter for many months.

Trump hit back, sending out an angry tweet laced with misspellings at 5:42 a.m.
