  • Will Heath  NBC		Alec Baldwin as President Donald J. Trump

President Donald Trump and Alec Baldwin sparred Friday on Twitter with Trump mocking the actor's Emmy Award-winning impression of him on "Saturday Night Live".

Alec Baldwin's brother, Billy, even got in the middle of the feud.

Baldwin accepts the Emmy for outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series past year for his portrayal of Trump on Saturday Night Live.

Baldwin continued to rib Trump in follow-up tweets writing, "Mr. President. please ask your wife to stop calling me for SNL tickets". He tweeted about Baldwin's "dieing" career and misspelled his name as "Alex".

Baldwin fired back at the president in a series of scathing tweets. There's no questioning Hammond's talent in impersonations, but a 2017 profile of the entertainer by The Washington Post underscores just how detrimental losing the Trump role was to him and why playing the now-president could be risky.

Yikes. Trump has yet to respond, but will probably be firing off another round of angry Tweets shortly. You Know. The Good Stuff.

Griezmann hits all four in Atleti rout
Costa found the ball on the left side of the pitch before dribbling in and noticing Griezmann running for the far post. Partey, 24, won four tackles - second highest - before he was replaced by Vitolo in the 60th minute.


Trump's tweets come a day after "The Hollywood Reporter" published an interview with Baldwin who talked about playing Trump on SNL.

Trump also called for the return of Darrell Hammond, who played just about every politician of note on "SNL" over his 15-year career on the show.

Baldwin, of course, had a response to that as well, which in turn seems to be confirmation that in spite of whatever "agony" he may feel over the impression, he's going to keep doing it for a little while longer.

"SNL" showrunner Lorne Michaels told The Post that the reason for the change was that he "needed another force, on an acting level, to have the power that Trump was embodying then", in the run up to the 2016 presidential election.

Baldwin has sparred verbally with Trump and often portrays him as a buffoon in topical sketches for SNL. "That we've all been waiting for". And early Friday morning, he used that tool to take on a new target: Alec Baldwin.

Putting aside politics, this exchange has us wondering: Which Trump impersonator is better, Baldwin or Hammond?
