Donald Trump’s propensity for tweeting at odd hours got the best of him Friday morning as a rant about Alec Baldwin’s impression of him on the past two season of “SNL” contained multiple typos — the most crucial one being that he referred to the actor as “Alex Bladwin” not once, but twice.
In addition to the misspelled name, Trump also botched the spelling of “dying,” spelling it instead as “dieing.”
“Alex Baldwin, whose dieing mediocre career was saved by his impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing DJT was agony for him. Alex, it was also agony for those who were forced to watch. You were terrible. Bring back Darrell Hammond, much funnier and a far greater talent!”
Trump was referring to comments Baldwin made to THR published on Thursday, in which he said: “Every time I do it now, it’s like agony. Agony. I can’t.”
The typo-filled tweet went out at 2:42 a.m. PT, and was deleted not long after and replaced a half-hour later with a new version of the tweet with the three errors corrected.
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 also endorsed the return of Darrell Hammond, who was known for doing a pretty great impression of Trump — among many others, including Bill Clinton — during his 15-year stint on the show from 1995 to 2009. POTUS endorsed Hammond as “funnier and a far greater talent!”
Baldwin has been playing Trump on “SNL” since the beginning of season 42 just prior to the 2016 presidential election, and has continued in the role through this season though the frequency of his appearances has been waning.
Baldwin only appeared as Trump in one of the four “SNL” episodes that has aired so far this year. The show returns from a month-long hiatus on Saturday.
