#RIPUSA Trump in a twitching twittering State of Panic on Hamilton , SNL and on being President #KeeepTrumInCheck, #AmericaHangsItHeadInShame,#ImpeachHimNow
President-elect Donald Trump has been calling for the cast of Hamiltonto apologize to his bigot Vice President, Mike Pence, after they respectfully confronted him at a recent show. Trump has been whining that the “very rude” cast “harassed” Pence, and that they should be sorry for standing up to his bigotry and hate speech.
But the Hamilton cast is far from the only target of Trump’s Twitter fury as of late. Last night, SNL did a brilliant skit about Trump freaking out over his presidential duties and actually having to follow through on all of his insane promises and “policies.” In the skit, Alec Baldwin did his famous, spot-on impersonation of Trump – which the President-elect has previously complained about on Twitter.
Trump must have seen the skit, because early this morning he was back to tweeting about Hamilton, and also started attacking SNL. Once again, he demanded an apology from the Broadway show’s cast on behalf of Pence:
Then, Trump made the fatal mistake of going after SNL and Baldwin for their hilarious depiction of his breakdown as President of the United States. Trump tweeted:
“I watched parts of Saturday Night Live last night. It is a totally one-sided, biased show – nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?”
What Trump probably didn’t expect was Baldwin’s immediate response. Baldwin wasted no time giving Trump a brutal reality check, firing back at the President-elect:
“Equal time? Election is over. There is no more equal time. Now you try to be President and people respond. That’s pretty much it.”
Absolutely brilliant – and that was just the beginning. Baldwin went on for several more tweets:
Seriously, can Baldwin just be President instead?! Baldwin has hit back at Trump before, and he nails it every single time! Trump has yet to issue a response (no surprise).
