Not only did Trump initially misspell Alec as "Alex," the man who portrays the 45th POTUS on "Saturday Night Live" got to showcase his trademark wit while imagining Trump's impeachment, and even took a shot at the president's marriage. Since the president took the first shot, Baldwin's tweets immediately went viral, with his (misspelled) name becoming a top trend on the social media platform just minutes after he published the fiery tweets.
"Alex Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on 'SNL,' now says playing me was agony. Alex, it was agony for those who were forced to watch," Trump tweeted early Friday morning before fixing his latest Twitter typo. "Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!"
Agony though 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. You know. The Good Stuff. That we've all been waiting for.
And Mr President...please ask your wife to stop calling me for SNL tickets.(Hey, Melania...we've got Charles Barkley this Saturday!)
Signing off for now. On my way to shoot MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN and grateful to be working w Edward Norton, Cherry Jones, Willem Dafoe, Bruce Willis, Bobby Canavale, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael K Williams.If this is mediocrity, give me more.
The definition of proportional response: An enemy power attacks the core of your democratic system and threatens your security with advanced nuclear weapons and you hit back with an attack on Alec Baldwin. How much longer do we accept this?
“Forced” to watch? Did your Russian handlers strap you to a chair in Mar-a-Lago, tape your eyelids open, turn on SNL and say: “No sanctions, comrade, or vorld vatches pee-pee tape instead of dis.” https://t.co/ejKDVpqTuc
1. It's Alec Baldwin, not Alex Baldwin. 2. It's dying, not dieing. (Seriously?!) 3. What's even MORE alarming than your "really good brain" with "the best words" flubbing a 4th grade level word? Putin *nuked* Florida in a video yesterday, you said NOTHING. pic.twitter.com/474ZAjSr4j
"This morning, it appears the White House is where steadiness goes to die. Not to mention syntax...The President seems to have changed his position on guns and the spelling of Alec Baldwin, all within the last 12 hours"https://t.co/ntGOkB9HAn
“Mr. president you should probably respond to putin video of nukes going towards Florida.” “More important things... I'm hate tweeting Alex Baldwin about his dieing career” “Um, ok sir. I think his name is Alec and dying is spelled...” “You're fired” pic.twitter.com/8GCIrfjATJ
Just to be clear, Vladimir Putin showed an animation of Russia dropping a NUKE on the US and Trump says NOTHING! Yet today, Trump is back on Twitter crying like a middle schooler about Alec Baldwin. What fresh Hell are we living in?
Woke up today relieved that our President has finally defended our country against the evil and dangerous Alec Baldwin. I bet that Kenyan Obama would have been distracted by the Russian nuclear weapon thingie.
