Alec Baldwin has responded to President Donald Trump’s angry tweet following his appearance as him on Saturday Night Live.
On Sunday, Trump tweeted: "Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC! Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution? Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion!"
Trump has responded to Baldwin’s portrayal of him previously on Twitter and many social media commenters glossed over his call for "retribution." Still, others, such as Peter Baker of the New York Times pointed out on Twitter, "no other president in decades publicly threatened 'retribution' against a television network because it satirized him."
Baldwin also appeared flummoxed. On Sunday, he tweeted: "I wonder if a sitting President exhorting his followers that my role in a TV comedy qualifies me as an enemy of the people constitutes a threat to my safety and that of my family?"
