Alec Baldwin Will Stop Impersonating Trump Under One Condition

As he is briefed on national security, Donald Trump retweets every xenophobic white man on Twitter.

UPDATE: Alec Baldwin pulled off another brilliant impersonation of Donald Trump on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend. 

Surely enough, the president-elect was not amused and took the time out from his presumably busy schedule to call out the late night TV show on Twitter. 

This time, however, Baldwin had a proposition for Trump. 

It's a perfectly reasonable proposition given that Trump ignored decades of precedent by not releasing his tax returns before the election.

As someone who prides himself to be a master negotiator, you'd think he'd take Baldwin up on his offer, especially considering how much he hates the weekly SNL sketches. 

Donald Trump, the man who will lead the world's most powerful nation in six short weeks, whose every word has the power to move world markets, who will take on the most important job of his lifetime, is preoccupied with "Saturday Night Live."

As America looked forward to the one thing that has made the ugly, chaotic election somewhat tolerable — Alec Baldwin's hilarious Trump impersonations — President-elect Trump was bent over his smartphone, furiously typing insults out to SNL.



It is Trump's propensity to tweet that was the mainstay for the latest SNL skit. Alec Baldwin's Trump retweeted a teenager named Seth, much like his real-life counterpart who used the 16-year-old's tweets to defend himself against accusations leveled by CNN.


“Seth seems so cool. His Twitter bio says he wants to make America great again. It also says he loves the Anaheim Ducks,” SNL's Trump gushed during the cold open.

But of course, "Saturday Night Live" realizes that Trump is unlike the hordes of angry old white men with a bald eagle for their Twitter avatar that he so desperately tries to mimic. Trump is not foolish; he understands how his knee-jerk reaction to the "Hamilton" incident will help veer attention from more pressing issues like his adamant refusal to completely relinquish control of his business and his insistence of having his children sit in during meetings with world leaders.

Even during a security briefing (that the president-elect has been avoiding since his victory), Trump is unable to keep himself away from Twitter. Kellyanne Conway (played by Kate McKinnon) defends him, saying that the tweets are needed “to distract the media from his business conflicts and all the very scary people in his cabinet.”

Also, we do not want to spoil it for you, but please watch out for chief strategist Steve Bannon.
