Live, from Twitter: It's Donald Trump, and he can't take a joke.
The Republican presidential candidate went on a tweeting storm Sunday morning over the latest episode of "Saturday Night Live," calling the bit "boring and unfunny," and bashing actor Alec Baldwin's portrayal of The Donald.
The sketch parodied the second ("and worst") presidential debate of last Sunday, and cast members hit every painful and humorous note, from Hillary Clinton's robotic mannerisms andTrump's lurking demeanor, to concerns about health care and whether each candidate is making a good impression on children amid the mud-slinging.
"I love the kids. I love them so much, I marry them," Baldwin-as-Trumpsaid. "I've been helping kids my whole life. In 1992, I helped a kid named Kevin McAllister find a hotel lobby. You might remember the documentary 'Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.'"
When asked about a leaked video tape on which Trump can be heard talking inappropriately about women, Baldwin parodied Trump's debate-night stunt of inviting Bill Clinton's alleged mistresses to the venue: "Martha, Anderson, hold on to your nips and nuts...because four of those women are here tonight, four of them."
Playing Clinton, Kate McKinnonfeigned the drama: "I'm sorry, who's here? Mistresses? Bill, how could you? How will I go on with the debate? I'll never be able to remember my facts and figures now. Oh Donald, no… Get real. I'm made of steel. This is nothing. Hi girls!"
Debate darling Ken Bone, played by Bobby Moynihan, obviously made an appearance, too, stealing the show with a dance number.
"SNL's" crowd went wild during the sketch, but Trump wasn't as pleased, tweeting this morning:
