ABC News reports:
The president woke up with Alec Baldwin on his mind — and let the world know about it. Well, he let “Alex Baldwin” know about it anyway.
Donald Trump took to Twitter at 5:42 a.m. to fire off a tweet attacking the left-leaning actor for his portrayal of Trump on “Saturday Night Live.” Baldwin had said on Thursday in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that it was “agony” to portray the president.
“Every time I do it now, it’s like agony. Agony. I can’t,” Baldwin told The Hollywood Reporter. Trump was not amused — and not good at spelling so early in the morning. He first tweeted about Baldwin’s “dieing” career and misspelled his name as “Alex.”
Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch. Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!

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.
