Trump Has It Out for “Alex” Baldwin.
The president began his Friday morning by mocking Alec Baldwin’s “dying mediocre career” and inaccurately calling him “Alex” twice.
“Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch,” Trump tweeted (this was after he corrected Alec’s name). He then asked SNL to bring back the “funnier” and “far greater” Darrell Hammond, to which Alec fired back: “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.”
Trump’s probably BIG mad.
