Trump responds immediately to 'Saturday Night Live' skit mocking his tweets


President-elect Donald Trump tweeted criticism of "Saturday Night Live" and actor Alec Baldwin after the comedy show aired a sketch making fun of his tweeting habits. He's 16 and he's in high school and I really did retweet him. "I mean, wow, what a great, smart tweet", Baldwin's Trump says.

Trump's controversial and sometimes out-right false tweets have certainly made headlines since he was elected almost one month ago, but the sketch focused more on the very questionable and very real people that the PEOTUS had been retweeting.

Last night's "Saturday Night Live" did what it does best: mock those who most deserve mocking. He took to his Twitter account to complain about how unfunny Baldwin's impersonation was.

Kate McKinnon as Kellyanne Conway and Alec Baldwin as President-elect Donald Trump on NBC's "SNL".

In a series of early-morning tweets Sunday, Trump vowed a 35 percent tax on products sold inside the U.S.by any business that fired American workers and built a new factory or plant in another country.

It is Trump's propensity to tweet that was the mainstay for the latest SNL skit.

This is the third time since October that Trump has been critical via his Twitter account of "SNL", a show he hosted just a year ago.

So no wonder the Real Donald Trump wasn't laughing.

The skit went on to skewer Trump's comments to television executives and anchors about using photos of him with a double chin, his dinner with Mitt Romney and his chief strategist Steve Bannon, which they painted as the Grim Reaper.

Despite preparing himself to lead the world's Western super power, the President-elect has also recently found time to block people he doesn't agree with on Twitter. "I do it because my brain is bad", he said.

The question of Trump's tax returns has been an issue since the start of his presidential campaign in June 2015.

Baldwin's Trump didn't agree.

"Build that swamp", Trump yells at one point.

"Seth, I thought I told you to turn off your phone", the teacher says.
