'Oops I Did It Again!': SNL Mocks Donald Trump's Constant Tweeting -- and He Fights Back
Saturday Night Live once again took on Donald Trump in Saturday's cold open -- and the PEOTUS once again responded on Twitter
The President-elect was once again the subject of the sketch show’s cold open on Saturday, where the show this time focused on his addiction to tweeting.
Trump (played again by Alec Baldwin) is supposed to be participating in an important security briefing with Kellyanne Conway (played by Kate McKinnon) and two advisors, but the former reality star keeps getting distracted by Twitter.
“There is a reason the Donald tweets so much,” Conway says in the sketch. “He does it to distract the media from his various business conflicts and all the scary people in his Cabinet.”
“Actually, that’s not why I do it,” Trump responds. “I do it because my brain is bad.”
Trump’s controversial and sometimes out-right false tweets have certainly made headlines since he was elected nearly one month ago, but the sketch focused more on the very questionable and very real people that the PEOTUS had been retweeting. The sketch showed several different tweeters that Trump has really retweeted, including a 16-year-old high school student, a man with a profile photo featuring a skull with guns and a man thinks liberalism is a mental disease.

Naturally, the real Trump couldn’t let the sketch go by unnoticed, and responded with — what else? — a tweet just after midnight on Sunday morning.
“Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse. Sad,” Trump tweeted.
Trump, who has hosted the hit NBC sketch show in the past, has been slamming SNL for the past month, with criticisms ranging from the late-night show somehow “rigging” the election (before he won) to continually sniping about Baldwin’s impression.
Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays (11:30 p.m. ET) on NBC.
