'Boring and unfunny': Donald Trump unloads on SNL over Alec Baldwin's Trump impression
Read Full Story
Donald Trump on Sunday ripped Alec Baldwin's impression of the Republican presidential nominee on "Saturday Night Live" and called for the show to be canceled.
"Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me. Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!" Trump wrote on Sunday.
Trump's criticism came after Saturday's episode spoofed his performance during the second presidential debate.
Donald Trump's tweets about pop stars
I like Russell Brand, but Katy Perry made a big mistake when she married him. Let's see if I'm right---I hope not.
.@katyperry Katy, what the hell were you thinking when you married loser Russell Brand. There is a guy who has got nothing going, a waste!
.@katyperry is no bargain but I don't like John Mayer--he dates and tells--be careful Katy (just watch!).
@taylorswift13 Thanks for the beautiful picture--- you are fantastic!
Glad to hear that @taylorswift13 will be co-hosting the Grammy nominations special on 12.5. Taylor is terrific!
I am a defender of @MileyCyrus, who I think is a good person (and not because she stays at my hotels), but last night's outfit must go!
I really like Jay Z but there is trouble in paradise. When his wife's sister starts whacking him, not good! No help from B leads to a mess.
Does Madonna know something we all don't about Barack? At a concert she said "we have a black Muslim in the White House."
Many people walked out on Madonna's concert when she told them to vote for Obama. Years ago I walked out because the concert was terrible!
.@cher should spend more time focusing on her family and dying career!
Little @MacMiller, I’m now going to teach you a big boy lesson about lawsuits and finance. You ungrateful dog!
It was just announced that @MacMiller’s song “DonaldTrump” went platinum—tell Mac Miller to kiss my ass!
They should have allowed applause during the TRIBUTE to the departed - Really bad production. Bette Midler sucked! #Oscars
I met Prince on numerous occasions. He was an amazing talent and wonderful guy. He will be greatly missed!
If @rihanna is dating @chrisbrown again then she has a death wish. A beater is always a beater--just watch!

"@michaeljackson: #FriendlyFriday Michael Jackson with Donald Trump. http://t.co/K4exeDeX1Z" Michael was very misunderstood - a great talent
.@JTimberlake It was great having you play The Blue Monster. Thanks for your nice statements-many agree that it is best they've seen!
Clive Davis gave a great eulogy at my friend Whitney Houston's funeral--absolutely amazing!
Whitney Houston was a great friend and an amazing talent. We will all miss her and send our prayers to her family.
Why would Ohio listen to Bruce Springsteen reading his lines? Be careful or I will go to Ohio and @MittRomney will win it!
11,000 inside venue tonight in Tampa! Broke record set by Elton John in 1988 w/out musical instruments! Another 5,000 outside. Will be back!
Axl Rose should take his #rockhall2012 honors and be happy. Stop the no induction nonsense. Do it for your fans @axlrose.

"@billboard: .@RodStewart on his (naked) "young and carefree" days and pal Donald Trump https://t.co/47RflaEHXG" Rod, album is great!
Congratulations to the Rolling Stones on marking their 50th anniversary in London.
.@Neilyoung’s song, “Rockin’ In The Free World” was just one of 10 songs used as background music. Didn’t love it anyway.
For the nonbeliever, here is a photo of @Neilyoung in my office and his $$ request—total hypocrite. http://t.co/Xm4BJvetIa
Thank you @BillyJoel- many friends just told me you gave a very kind shoutout at MSG. Appreciate it- love your music!
The sketch highlighted his 2005 comments boasting about groping women and kissing them without their consent, and it mocked how he appeared to lurk onstage behind Clinton during the debate.
The real-estate mogul wasn't the only one who has noticed a shift in how Trump has been portrayed on SNL.
Television critics have noted that the depiction of the real-estate magnate has taken a darker turn since Baldwin stepped into the role at the beginning of the season.
Trump has appeared on the show multiple times and hosted on the show in November, even at one point standing alongside previous Trump impersonators Darrell Hammond and Taran Killam.
