The president-elect took to Twitter soon after SNL mocked his recent press conference with an 8-minute sketch.
Despite Trump winning the election, it appears that he will continue to get roasted by SNL and Alec Baldwin, who has emerged as his top impersonator, as he begins his presidency. On the latest SNL episode, Baldwin staged a parody of Trump's press conference last week, which was his first as president-elect. Baldwin began by addressing "the question that's on everybody's mind": "Yes, this is real life," he said. "This is really happening. On January 20, I, Donald J. Trump, will become the 45th president of the United States.”
The SNL press conference went on to mock the lackluster list performers and celebrity guests at Trump's inauguration, before Baldwin faced predictable questions on the unverified "golden showers" report that was the source of scandalous headlines last week. Baldwin's Trump attempts to dodge the question, only to speak with obvious innuendo regarding the "pee party" that allegedly took place in Moscow. "This country will be literally showered with jobs," he says. "Because I am a major whiz at jobs. And this will be a golden opportunity for me as president to make a big splash."
He later avows to replace Obamacare with a policy he read about called the Affordable Care Act, not realizing the two are one in the same. Toward the end of the sketch, a bald and shirtless Beck Bennett, calling himself Wolf Blitzer but clearly intending to play Vladimir Putin, asks Trump, "Are you sure Russia was behind hacking?" Putin then holds up a videotape with "Pee Pee Tape" and says, "But are you really, really sure?" to which Trump responds, "It was China. Err, I mean Canada. It was Meryl Streep!"
As is usually the case after a particularly scathing Baldwin impression, the real Trump was quick to condemn the sketch -- as well as the entire SNL production -- on Twitter. "Not funny, cast is terrible, always a complete hit job," wrote the man who becomes president in four days. "Really bad television!"
