Trump just attacked Alec Baldwin on Twitter. Baldwin’s response is gold

President Donald Trump spent Friday morning on a Fox and Friends’ inspired Twitter tirade, defending his steel tariff, promoting his trade war and attacking actor Alec Baldwin.

Yes. After Fox and Friends ran a segment this morning on Baldwin saying it was “agony” to keep doing Trump impressions on Saturday Night Live, and that if Trump won in 2020, perhaps he could host a game show in Spain instead of doing more impressions.

Around an hour after the segment — and before 6 a.m. — Trump felt the need to lash out at Baldwin for being tired of playing him on the satirical variety show. But Trump appeared to have some trouble with Baldwin’s name and basic spelling.

Trump tweeted — before deleting and correcting — incorrectly Baldwin’s first name as “Alex” and spelled dying as “dieing.”

“Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch,” Trump eventually tweeted. “Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!”


Baldwin — who has been lauded for his portrayal of Trump on SNL, a gig he took over from Hammond  — hit back Friday morning, noting that he’d keep doing the portrayal.

“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,” Baldwin tweeted. “You know. The Good Stuff. That we’ve all been waiting for.”


But Baldwin wasn’t done there.

The actor also went in on Trump’s future presidential library and what it would look like, citing Trump’s habits and preferences Twitter and porn stars.

“Looking forward to the Trump Presidential Library,” Baldwin tweeted. “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…”


Baldwin also trolled Trump by saying that first lady Melania Trump was apparently a big fan of SNL.

“And Mr President…please ask your wife to stop calling me for SNL tickets. (Hey, Melania…we’ve got Charles Barkley this Saturday!)” he tweeted.

Finally, in response to Trump’s attack on his career being “mediocre,” Baldwin added one last jab before dropping the mic.

“Signing off for now. On my way to shoot MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN and grateful to be working w Edward Norton, Cherry Jones, Willem Dafoe, Bruce Willis, Bobby Canavale, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael K Williams,” Baldwin tweeted. “If this is mediocrity, give me more.”


As great as Baldwin’s responses were, it’s troubling that Trump felt the need to spend his morning fighting with an actor on social media on the same day a potentially disastrous Nor’easter strikes the East Coast, one day after Putin unveiled an “invincible” missile and as the nation grapples with gun law reforms in the wake of the deadly Parkland school shooting.
