Actor Alec Baldwin didn’t appreciate some of President Donald Trump’s criticisms about his recent appearance on “Saturday Night Live.”

Baldwin reprised his role in impersonating the president for SNL’s cold opening on Saturday night. Baldwin mimicked Trump’s recent press conference last week where he declared a national emergency in order to gain funding for a border wall between the United States and Mexico.

After Trump’s recent complaints about the skit, Baldwin fired back.

Baldwin’s tweet came after a Trump tweet blasting “SNL” as “tired” and NBC as a purveyor of “Fake News.”

“Very unfair and should be looked into,” Trump tweeted. “This is the real Collusion!”

He added: “THE RIGGED AND CORRUPT MEDIA IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!”

Baldwin skewered Trump in the opening.

“We have a tremendous amount of drugs flowing into this country from the southern border, or the brown line as many people have asked me not to call it,” the actor joked during his routine. “That’s why we need wall, because wall works. Wall makes safe.”

Baldwin has played Trump on “SNL” since Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. In his most recent appearance, he poked fun at Trump’s reaction to reporters at press conferences, his political experience and even the president’s recent health examination.

“I just had a great health exam. I’m still standing 6’7, 185 pounds — shredded,” Baldwin’s Trump said.

So what do you think?

Did you watch Baldwin’s skit?

And most importantly, did you laugh?
