Actor Alec Baldwin, who personifies US President Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, claims that the recent POTUS tweets about his appearance this weekend ‘constitutes a threat to my safety and that of my family?’
President Donald Trump has famously been critical of SNL and the performance of Mr Baldwin who has appeared multiple times as a caricatured version of the current US President.
Over the weekend, he tweeted: ‘Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC! Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution? Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion!’
Mr Baldwin has now, for the first time in a long time, responded to POTUS, stating: “I wonder if a sitting President exhorting his followers that my role in a TV comedy qualifies me as an enemy of the people constitutes a threat to my safety and that of my family?”
