Donald Trump calls Saturday Night Live spoof 'hit job,' calls for end of show

Last Updated Oct 16, 2016 at 8:14 pm EST

Donald Trump has some choice words for “Saturday Night Live.”

The Republican presidential candidate tweeted early Sunday morning that the show’s skit depicting him this week was a “hit job.” Trump went on to write that it’s “time to retire” the show, calling it “boring and unfunny” and adding that Alec Baldwin’s portrayal of him “stinks.”

Saturday’s show featured a send-up of the second presidential debate last held last Sunday at Washington University in St. Louis.

“Martha, she is trying to silence these women but they need to be respected,” Baldwin, as Trump, tells debate moderator Martha Raddatz, played by Cecily Strong. “They need their voices heard.”

“What about all the women accusing you of sexual assault?” Strong asks

“They need to shut the hell up,” Baldwin responds.

Baldwin, who retweeted Trump’s critique, has been playing him on “Saturday Night Live” since its 42nd season kicked off a few weeks ago, with Kate McKinnon depicting Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.

Trump himself hosted an episode of “Saturday Night Live” last November.
