Alec Baldwin responded to President Donald Trump’s Friday tweet by saying that he wants to continue to play Trump on “Saturday Night Live” until “the impeachment hearings.”
Trump called Baldwin’s impersonation “terrible,” and that watching it is “agony.”
“Agony though it may be, I’d like to hang in there for the impeachment hearings, the resignation speech, the farewell helicopter ride to Mara-A-Lago [sic],” Baldwin tweeted Friday. “You know. The Good Stuff. That we’ve all been waiting for.” (RELATED: Alec Baldwin: I’m Going To ‘Give It Everything’ To Get Rid Of Trump)
Agony though it may be, I’d like to hang in there for the impeachment hearings, the resignation speech, the farewell helicopter ride to Mara-A-Lago. You know. The Good Stuff. That we’ve all been waiting for.

“And Mr President…please ask your wife to stop calling me for SNL tickets,” he added. (Hey, Melania…we’ve got Charles Barkley this Saturday!)”
“Looking forward to the Trump Presidential Library. A putting green. Recipes for chocolate cake. A live Twitter feed for visitors to post on. A little black book w the phone numbers of porn stars,” he continued.
The feud started when Baldwin told The Hollywood Reporter he plans to “give it everything” to get rid of Trump, and that portraying the president on “SNL” was “like agony. Agony. I can’t.”
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!
