By now, President-elect Donald Trump should really know better than to criticize Saturday Night Live. Then again, he’s not very smart or logical. Every time Trump attacks SNL and Actor Alec Baldwin for impersonating or mocking him, Trump only gets blasted even worse. Apparently, he has yet to learn that lesson.
Last night on SNL, Baldwin performed his amazing Trump impersonation in a hilarious clip that mocked the President-elect for his ridiculous cringe-worthy Twitter obsession and his lack of focus for his new job. It was the perfect response to how the rest of America has been feeling during this time, when we all know that Trump should be preparing for his new job but we’re seeing more petty tweets than action.
Well, Trump evidently saw the SNL clip, because he tweeted that night, “Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse. Sad.”
Let’s ignore the fact that the future President if the United States should probably be familiarizing himself with security briefings instead of watching television, or the fact that his tweet only confirms what SNL was mocking him for. Shortly after Trump attacked SNL, Baldwin fired right back at him with a message that will probably shut Trump up for a while. Baldwin challenged Trump:
“Release your tax returns and I’ll stop. Ha.”
It doesn’t get any better than that. Baldwin perfectly points out – and made sure that no one has forgotten – that America STILL hasn’t seen Trump’s tax returns. Trump’s various other scandals are constantly distracting and covering up the fact that Trump is likely hiding something because he’s been so secretive and defensive about these tax documents. And now, his tax returns are going to bite Trump in the a**. It’s unlikely that he’ll release them, so SNL is going to keep humiliating Trump – and it will be his own fault.
