Alec Baldwin is a frequent imitator of President Trump on Saturday Night Live, and the President doesn't like it. In a Twitter feud for the world to see, the two are trading insults.

The President's response followed Alec Baldwin's interview with The Hollywood Reporter

How much longer with you play Trump on Saturday Night Live?

Every time I do it now, it's like agony. Agony. I can't. If things don't go in the right direction for the midterms. … I could go out on the street, stand on any corner and tap 10 people on the shoulder. And all 10 of them, in all likelihood, would be more qualified — ethically, morally, intellectually and spiritually — than Trump. I'll vote for Mitt Romney. I don't care. Anybody over this guy. It doesn't matter. We have to get rid of him. And that's another project I'm working on. I was the keynote speaker at the Democratic Dinner in Iowa, and I'm gonna go do a couple more of those this year. My wife and I agreed that we're gonna give it everything we have. And then if, God forbid, he wins again in 2020, I'm wondering can I host a game show in Spain.

Not to be outdone, Baldwin responded in a few tweets, including this one:

Discussion:

  • Should either or both of these men refrain from this type of argument on Twitter? Why or why not?
  • We could say the President lacks humility, including the ability to laugh at himself. Do you agree with this statement, or do you believe Baldwin is out of line, or something else?
