As Donald Trump’s White House implodes and his investigations close in on him, the president is at his breaking point – and that was definitely evident this morning, when Trump blew up on Twitter.
Earlier today, Trump posted an insane, furious tweet (complete with misspellings) attacking actor Alec Baldwin, who is now infamous for his amazing impersonation of the president on Saturday Night Live. Trump and Baldwin have been feuding for quite some time, but there has been some silence as Trump melts down about other things. But this morning, Trump was more than happy to reignite the feud.
Trump’s 6 am Twitter rant was about multiple things, but his part about Baldwin misspelt the word “dying”, and even called Baldwin by the wrong name. Trump also creepily referred to himself in third person. Trump trashed Baldwin’s impersonation of him on SNL, stating that it made the show painful to watch (which couldn’t be further from the truth). Trump wrote, before he deleted and posted a new corrected tweet:
“Alex Baldwin, whose dieing mediocre career was saved by his impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing DJT was agony for him. Alex, it was also agony for those who were forced to watch. You were terrible. Bring back Darrell Hammond, much funnier and a far greater talent!”
Darrell Hammond had played Trump on Saturday Night Live until 2016, when Baldwin took over the role.
Trump was clearly reacting to Baldwin’s Hollywood Reporter interview, where Baldwin spoke about his Trump impression. The A-list actor said, hinting that he was so disgusted with Trump that portraying him on the show was actually painful:
“Every time I do it now, it’s like agony. Agony. I can’t”.
Trump would soon regret attacking Baldwin, because Baldwin returned fire in a major way. The actor shot back in a series of tweets that destroyed Trump:
“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.
Looking forward to the Trump Presidential Library. A putting green. Recipes for chocolate cake. A live Twitter feed for visitors to post on. A little black book w the phone numbers of porn stars. You’re in and out in five minutes. Just like…”
“And Mr President…please ask your wife to stop calling me for SNL tickets. (Hey, Melania…we’ve got Charles Barkley this Saturday!)”
This burn by Baldwin was so bad, Trump might actually delete his Twitter account in embarrassment.
