Trump Was Right: SNL Suffers Lackluster Ratings With ‘Mediocre’ Alec Baldwin Playing Trump Which ‘Was an Agony to Watch’

For the last year-and-a-half Alec Baldwin has played the role of Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live.
His character is neither believable or funny.

But they keep rolling with it.

SNL has not figured out that NOBODY does Donald Trump better than Donald Trump.

On Friday President Trump panned Alec Baldwin’s portrayal and his “dying mediocre career.”

President Trump: Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch. Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!

Trump wants Darrell Hammond back to play his character.

Deadline reported:

After taking a month-long break for the Winter Olympics, NBC’s Saturday Night Live returned last night with Charles Barkley in his fourth turn as host, Alec Baldwin as Trump on the heels of a Twitter sparring with the President over his impersonation, and musical guest Migos. The show averaged a 4.2 Live+same day rating in the metered market households and a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating in the markets with local people meters (the Boston and Providence markets are currently excluded).

That is down from SNL‘s last original before the break, hosted by Natalie Portman (4.6, 2.0) and a L+SD household rating season low.
