The latest episode of “Saturday Night Live” opened with Alec Baldwin continuing to impersonate President-elect Donald Trump in a sketch, mocking Trump’s use of Twitter.
At one point “SNL” cast member Kate McKinnon, impersonating Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, defended Trump’s tweeting habits, saying: “There is a reason, actually, that Donald tweets so much. He does it to distract the media from his business conflicts and all the very scary people in his Cabinet.”
“Actually, that’s not why I do it,” Baldwin’s Trump responded. “I do it because my brain is bad.”
Though the sketch got a lot of laughs, someone who wasn’t laughing was Trump, who tweeted on Saturday night that Baldwin’s impersonation of him “can’t get any worse.”
Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse. Sad

Baldwin then responded to Trump’s tweet, telling him, “Release your tax returns and I’ll stop.”
Release your tax returns and I’ll stop.

Trump has said publicly in the past that he will release his tax returns when the IRS is through with its audit of him.
