Donald Trump has a reputation for being thin skinned and he likes to tweet away negative comments about anyone he thinks has insulted him. Since Alec Baldwin first unveiled his impression of Trump on Saturday Night Live, both he and the show have been the ire of Trump’s wrath. Trump keeps on tweeting that the show is really bad now which has left many people wondering why he still bothers to watch the show if this is how he feels.
One of those people is Matt Lauer.The Today show anchor said, “Can we agree, President-elect Trump, that at this stage it would be better for you to simply stop watching ‘SNL’ as opposed to watching it and then complaining about it?”
After Donald Trump insisted that he has not been on Twitter as much as he had been before the election, Matt Lauer responded, “I have not seen you backing off fights on Twitter.”
Now people are waiting to see if Donald Trump will take to Twitter to slam Matt Lauer for the interview.
