Last night appears to have been a sleepless one for the President of the United
States of America, who stayed up into the early hours of the morning diligently
working on initiatives that will improve the lives of millions of Americans in
the areas where they need it the most. Just kiddingTrump was up stewing about
Alec Baldwins impression of him on Saturday Night Live:
Donald J. Trump
"Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible
impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. Alec, it was agony
for those who were forced to watch. Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a
far greater talent!

Note that time stamp; this is an edited version of Trumps original tweet, which
misspelled both Baldwins name (Alex Baldwin) and the word dying (dieing),
as hyper-intelligent 4-D chess champions do. The barely literate tirade comes
after an interview published yesterday in The Hollywood Reporter where Baldwin
vowed to give efforts to defeat Trump in 2020 everything [I] have and said of
playing him on SNL: Every time I do it now, its like agony. Agony. I cant.
It also comes amid a sharp drop in markets both overseas and on Wall Street,
where the Dow opened down 1.2 percent after Trump proposed a 25 percent tariff
on steel imports and a 10 percent tariff on aluminum. Immediately before his
Baldwin tweet, Trump tweeted that trade wars are good, and easy to win. Well
see about that. Baldwinwho announced a new late-night talk show based on his
podcast earlier this weekmeanwhile, responded to Trumps ego trip with one of
"Signing off for now. On my way to shoot MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN and grateful to be
working w Edward Norton, Cherry Jones, Willem Dafoe, Bruce Willis, Bobby
Canavale, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael K Williams.
If this is mediocrity, give me more.

For what its worth, Trumps not alone in his opinion that Darrell Hammond did a
better impression of him: Why, Trumps hated Washington Post said the same thing
last fall, in a piece detailing Hammonds devastation at being replaced by Lorne
Michaels in the role.
