Many believe Trump is angered by Baldwin’s offensive impersonation of him–wherein he acts like a completely narcissistic, erratic, racist buffoon. But the truth is, Trump is pissed off because he didn’t think of some of Baldwin’s lines himself.
As usual, Trump took to Twitter to share his most pressing thoughts. “Who does he think he is, taking my persona, coming up with lines I would have killed for… C’mon, I’m the president, not him.”
Trump continued, in a second Tweet, saying, “If anyone has the right to make statements that vulgar, and that stupid, it should be me. I won, just look at the crowds, everybody loves me…” The Tweet was cut off.
