SNL Suggests That Trump Was Paid Off by NRA After Florida Shooting

Trump not a fan of 'Alex' Baldwin's 'terrible' impersonation Trump sparks Twitter war with actor Alec Baldwin

Donald Trump has slammed Alec Baldwin, the actor who has famously played the US President on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" (SNL) since 2016, saying that watching his impersonation acts were an "agony" for audiences, the media reported.

This week's cold open follows a week in which Baldwin and Trump exchanged barbs on Twitter. The meeting came after 17 people were killed and 14 others were injured in a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. last month. That created more chaos for the real Alex Baldwin, who said he was swamped by Trump trolls.

"Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his bad impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony".

"No one loves the Second Amendment and due process more than me", Baldwin's Trump said.




The sketch mocked Trump's shifting positions on gun control, Jared Kushner's business ties, and the resignation of White House communications chief Hope Hicks. But one of Trump's typos wound up sending a bunch of attention towards 28-year-old Alex Baldwin. "I'm actually a very fast runner". I don't care. Anybody over this guy. "If I have to make America's schools safe all by myself, I will - just like I'm running the White House by myself".

Baldwin's Trump also talked about all of the countries that are ahead of the US, including China, Japan, and the fictional setting of Black Panther, Wakanda. "You know. The good stuff". Che said. "You know, that once happened to me". "But instead", he said, "we'll look to Donald Trump".

"That business is a Waffle House at 2 a.m., crazies everywhere, staff walking out in the middle of their shift, managers taking money out of the cash registers to pay the Russian mob".
