Alec Baldwin returned to “Saturday Night Live” to reprise his role as Donald Trump, mocking the president-elect’s prolific Twitter habits in the show’s opening skit.
It took just 45 minutes for Trump, on Twitter, to respond.
“Just tried watching Saturday Night Live — unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse. Sad,” Trump wrote during the show.
The SNL skit starts by pointing out something that actually happened last week — Trump retweeting a 16-year-old boy named Seth in an attempt to bolster his claim that CNN supported Hillary Clinton throughout the campaign.
“God, Seth seems so cool,” Baldwin’s Trump said after retweeting the teenager (played by cast member Pete Davidson). “His Twitter bio says he wants to make America great again.”
The skit highlighted Trump’s apparent lack of interest in intelligence briefings.
As Reuters story reported earlier this week, only one member of Trump’s transition team, Geoffrey Kahn, is dealing with the CIA and 16 other offices in the U.S. intelligence community.
Trump’s tweet apparently sparked the outrage of at least one woman, who as NBC reports, wasn’t having it.
Danielle Muscato, who describes herself on Twitter as “Atheist — Civil Rights Activist — Musician — Trans Woman (she/her),” went off on the president-elect in an epic Twitter rant declaring to Trump, “You are embarrassing yourself.”
During the next two hours, Muscato unleashed more than 30 tweets calling out Trump for being a “fake” and “fraud.”
@realDonaldTrump You are not fooling anyone. You're scared, and overwhelmed, and you have absolutely no idea what you're doing. And it shows

Her rant went viral and her first tweet was liked more than 30,000 times, according to NBC News.
Rolling Stones on the blues
When the Rolling Stones fell in love with American blues music as teenagers in England in the late 1950s and early ’60s, the grand old men of the genre they idolized were 20 to 30 years their seniors.
Muddy Waters was in his late 40s and Howlin’ Wolf was about 50.
Now that the Stones themselves are wizened veterans, they are bringing a lifetime’s worth of experience to bear in their homage to their youthful heroes in “Blue & Lonesome,” the first full-fledged blues outing ever for the group often called “The World’s Greatest Rock & Roll Band.”
And to hear Mick Jagger and Keith Richards talk about it, you get the impression it feels to them like the difference between then and now is barely the blink of an eye.
“In a way it reminds me of 1962,” Richards, 72, said in an interview from his home in Connecticut.
“On the other hand, we probably play them a little different now, probably with more confidence,” he said.
