Alec Baldwin Vows to Endure 'Agony' of Playing Trump Until He's Out of the White House

The Alex Baldwins of the world are having an interesting morning.

Preposterously early Friday morning, Trump—the bumbling chump who somehow got hired to house-sit the White House—tweeted angrily in the general direction of "Alex Baldwin," according toABC News. Said tweet, which has since been deleted, also included the mysterious word "dieing."

Alex? Dieing?

Is Trump drunk tweeting right now?

Putin: "Russia has developed an unstoppable nuclear missile."

Trump, 24 hours later: "Alex Baldwin is bad!"

Shortly after whatever that is, Trump issued a similar tweet, this time directed at Alec Baldwin.

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!

Trump, who's clearly more upset about this than Parkland, was the subject of some comments Baldwin gave to the Hollywood Reporter Thursday. "Every time I [play Trump on SNL] now, it's like agony," he said. "Agony. I can't. If things don't go in the right direction for the midterms. … I could go out on the street, stand on any corner and tap 10 people on the shoulder. And all 10 of them, in all likelihood, would be more qualified—ethically, morally, intellectually and spiritually—than Trump. I'll vote for Mitt Romney. I don't care. Anybody over this guy. It doesn't matter. We have to get rid of him."

Following Trump's early morning dumbassery Friday, Baldwin reassured the failed steak salesman that he has all intentions of continuing to impersonate him on SNL, at least until he's evicted from the White House. He also imagined the abject anti-intellectualism of a purely theoretical Trump presidential library.

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.
