Donald Trump 'SNL' Tweets: President-Elect Says Show Is 'Mean-Spirited', Suggests It Might End Soon [VIDEO]

President-elect Donald Trump is expanding upon his newfound hatred for NBC's Saturday Night Live, calling the show "terrible."

Alec Baldwin has been playing Trump since the SNL season premiere, appearing in almost every episode. As of late, Trump has been closely watching SNL's take on him and tweeting angrily about it, calling the show unfunny and bashing Baldwin's portrayal.

Trump called in to Today Wednesday morning to further discuss his feelings on SNL, which he also happened to host last November (the only 2016 candidate to do so).

"Well, I hosted SNL when it was a good show, but it's not a good show anymore," Trump explained to Today's Matt Lauer. "Nothing to do with me - there's nothing funny about it. The skits are terrible. I mean, I like Alec, but his imitation of me is really mean-spirited and not very good. I don't think it's good. I do like him, and I like him as an actor, but I don't think his imitation of me gets me at all. And it's meant to be very mean-spirited, which is very biased. I don't like it. So I can tweet that out."

Trump's fixation on SNL has been a topic of discussion over the past few weeks, with some to wondering why he is still watching it considering how he feels about it. When Lauer suggested that Trump should perhaps stop tuning in to the late night sketch comedy, Trump speculated that it might actually end soon.

"Frankly, the way the show is going now - and you look at the kind of work they're doing - who knows how long that show is going to be on? It's a terrible show," he replied.

Trump's latest rant against Saturday Night Live comes on the same day as TIME revealing him to be Person of the Year, a distinction that has gone to many world leaders in the past.
