Donald Trump lambasted Alec Baldwin after the Hollywood liberal said it was “agony” for him to play the President on Saturday Night Live.
Baldwin, who won an Emmy for his role in the sketch comedy bits playing a caricature of Trump, said he could barely stand to do the impersonation any longer.
“Every time I do it now, it’s like agony. Agony. I can’t,” he told the Hollywood Reporter.

The President shot back in a tweet this morning, indicating the real agony was for people who had to watch the pathetic effort.
“Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony,” Trump wrote. “Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch.”
To be fair, watching anything on SNL these days is agony. They’ve become a sad, unimaginative collaboration of mediocre comedy. Perhaps that’s why Baldwin fits in so well.
In a final jab, Trump noted – correctly – that former SNL star Darrell Hammond, who did legendary impersonations of the President, Al Gore, Sean Connery, etc., was better and funnier than Baldwin.
“Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!” Trump wrote.

Baldwin has severe anger issues – anyone remember the multiple times he physically attacked reporters – and it shows when he does his ‘mediocre’ Trump impersonation.
“I could go out on the street, stand on any corner and tap 10 people on the shoulder,” he said during the interview. “And all 10 of them, in all likelihood, would be more qualified — ethically, morally, intellectually and spiritually — than Trump.”
He compared the President to Hitler in an interview with British GQ in October.
“What you see with Trump is how Hitler got elected,” the man with a dying career said. “Someone who will say anything to people because of their economic interest.”
Odd, coming from a man clearly saying anything to people because of their liberal Hollywood career interests.
