WASHINGTON (AP) — Alec Baldwin is responding to a tweet by Donald Trump in which the president suggested he lose his job at “Saturday Night Live,” calling his career “dying” and saying that watching his portrayal was “agony.”

Baldwin tweets that “I’d like to hang in there for the impeachment hearings, the resignation speech, the farewell helicopter ride.”

The president started the spat after seeming to react to an interview Baldwin gave to The Hollywood Reporter that was published Thursday in which the actor said he doesn’t enjoy parodying Trump: “Every time I do it now, it’s like agony.”

Baldwin also tweeted that he was “Looking forward to the Trump Presidential Library” and suggested that it would contain a live Twitter feed and “a little black book w the phone numbers of porn stars.”
