Trump: SNL is 'unwatchable,' 'biased'

(WWBT) -

Donald Trump tweeted saying he is not a fan of Alec Baldwin's portrayal of Saturday Night Live.

During Saturday's cold open, Baldwin's Trump was at a security briefing but hopped onto Twitter after losing focus.

"I just retweeted the best tweet. I mean, wow, what a great, smart tweet," Baldwin said as he retweeted a 16-year-old California high schooler.

"He really did do this," said Kate McKinnon as Kellyanne Conway.

In the skit, an adviser told him to "please stop retweeting all these random, real people" due to not getting any work done.

"That's not true," Baldwin's Trump said. "I was elected 25 days ago, and unemployment is at a nine-year low. Millions and millions of people have healthcare, and Osama bin Laden is dead." 

Donald Trump fired back in response of the skit.

Baldwin responded to Trump's tweet.
