Donald Trump attacks 'Alex' Baldwin on Twitter over impersonation

Donald Trump attacks 'Alex' Baldwin on Twitter over impersonation”

Although his impersonations of Donald Trump for "Saturday Night Live" continue to be a ratings hit after well over a year, Alec Baldwin has admitted that lampooning the president is becoming "agony".

He reupped the tweet, this time with proper spelling of both "Alec" and "dying" at 6:07 a.m. Trump also called for the return of Darrell Hammond, who played just about every politician of note on "SNL" over his 15-year career on the show. Alex, it was also agony for those who were forced to watch. "Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent", said the amended tweet.

Trump lashed out at Baldwin hours before he is slated to depart for Charlotte, North Carolina, for the funeral of Rev. Billy Graham.

The president's comments are in response to an interview with Baldwin published by The Hollywood Reporter Thursday.

Trump posted a similar tweet earlier on Friday, in which he referred to the actor as "Alex Baldwin", though it was quickly deleted.

Baldwin has struggled with his role, growing impatient with his parody connection to the president.

When Baldwin first unveiled his incredibly popular take on Trump in the fall of 2016, he was only supposed to be a guest performer on "SNL".

The actor said he would even vote for 2012 GOP Republican nominee and Utah Senate candidate Mitt Romney over Trump. I don't care. Anybody over this guy. "My inclination to want to defend my friends - who either (a) I thought were innocent, which is Woody or (b) I had no knowledge of what they did and I still have no knowledge of what they did, which is Toback is a normal inclination", he says. "It doesn't matter. We have to get rid of him", the comedian continued. "My wife and I agreed that we're gonna give it everything we have". He joked that, if Trump were to win re-election in the 2020 White House race, he would probably "host a game show in Spain". I was in shock, and I stayed in shock for a long time.
