They're at it again: Donald Trump and Alec Baldwin will probably never end their bitter feud until either Trump is kicked out of office or Baldwin is kicked off Saturday Night Live. And with the ratings success the past few years, the latter seems unlikely.

Baldwin unknowingly reignited their Twitter feud that has been going on since the fall of 2016, a few months before Trump won the presidential election and when Baldwin put the orange wig on for the first time.

He said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter last week that he doesn't really enjoy impersonating Trump: "Every time I do it now, it's like agony. Agony. I can't."

The following day after the interview appeared, Trump struck back with his favorite M.O., Twitter. He first tweeted and misspelled the actor's name as "Alex," then deleted it and reposted again: "Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch. Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!"

And, of course, Baldwin was not going to let that go, as he hit him back several times after that comment.

"Agony though it may be," he tweeted, "I'd like to hang in there for the impeachment hearings, the resignation speech, the farewell helicopter ride to Mara-A-Lago. [sic] You know. The Good Stuff. That we've all been waiting for."

This was followed up by, "Looking forward to the Trump Presidential Library: A putting green. Recipes for chocolate cake. A live Twitter feed for visitors to post on. A little black book w the phone numbers of porn stars. You're in and out in five minutes."

He followed this by telling the President to tell his wife to stop asking him for SNL tickets.

The following day, Baldwin called into his brother Daniel's radio show in Syracuse while doing his Trump impersonation and eating a "gigantic piece of chocolate cake."

He was asked if he should be spending his time on the Twitter feud instead of leading the country: "I got this. I'm the president. I won. I'm a multi-tasker. I've always done lots of things. I've always had five or six girlfriends at a time."

As himself, he told the radio listeners that on SNL, "We're doing our civic duty," adding, "We're doing the best we can with what we have. Here we have this guy who is probably the greatest presidential impersonator we've ever seen in history."

But Baldwin still wasn't done for the weekend. He did the cold open on SNL yet again. This time, the character was responding to the Parkland school shooting in a meeting with Congress with Vice President Mike Pence on one side of him and Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein on the other (Beck Bennett and Cecily Strong).

The character hit on all of Trump's miscues since the shooting, saying, "Last week I met with a group of teenage survivors of gun violence. And I want to assure them once again," then picked up his notes and read, "I hear you. And I care."

"We have to take a hard look at mental health," he added. "Which I have so much of. I have one of the healthiest mentals. My mentals are so high."

He then discussed taking away everyone's guns, "even whites," saying he could "only run into so many schools and save everybody."

He continued, noting he'd run all the way to North Korea to stop Kim Jong Un, and after mentioning Hope Hicks and Jared Kushner, he mentioned Jeff Sessions (Kate McKinnon) who stood up behind him and recited, "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!" along with him.

It doesn't look like Trump's angry tweet had much effect.
