Trump sparks Twitter war with actor Alec Baldwin

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

The scene switches to the White House, where "Trump says "I hear you and I care", referring to the Parkland, Florida, school shooting and reading from his crib notes".

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

In response to Baldwin noting that playing the president is agony, Trump tweeted: "Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his bad impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony".

Baldwin, a father of four whose career only a few years ago was dogged by run-ins with the paparazzi, had told The Hollywood Reporter of his portrayal of Trump: "Every time I do it now, it's like agony".

"I said I was going to run this country like a business", Baldwin-as-Trump said.

"So the schools are safe now, but I wouldn't stop there 'cos I'm on a roll I just keep running and running".

"Wakanda is laughing at us", he said of America's inferiority to the fictional country in "Black Panther".

Hicks, played by Cecily Strong, appeared later on Weekend Update to say goodbye to her friends from her "semester overseas at the White House". But she admitted she tried to stay out of "that whole communications mess". "He was alone in a room with a bunch of gun enthusiasts and they somehow managed to change his mind?"

"McMaster, are you staying, am I right?"

Turning to the idea of arming teachers, Jost reminisced over the Catholic nuns who taught him who were "violent enough with rulers".

"Let's get a drink when this is all over", Alex said. Baldwin hit all of Trump's talking points, from the paper for gun control victims to trade wars with Wakanda, Jared Kushner's Top Secret access being lowered, the stock market, and the hasty exit of Hope Hicks - everything was touched on. "I get the need that you want to have gun protection, but there's a fine line between caution and insane".

Baldwin dropped by "Saturday Night Live" this weekend for a cold open that took aim at Trump's chaotic week.
