LOS ANGELES (CBSMiami/AP) — Donald Trump has some choice words for one of America’s most popular comedy shows.
The Republican presidential candidate tweeted early Sunday morning that Saturday Night Live’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.”
Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me.Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!

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