Washington D.C. [USA], Dec. 5 (ANI): Alec Baldwin, who is noted for impersonating Donald Trump on 'Saturday Night Live', has promised the President-elect that he would stop on one condition-- "release your tax returns." In response to the 70-year-old businessman's tweet criticizing the show for being "totally biased, not funny and saying the actor's impression "can't get any worse," Baldwin wrote, "Release your tax returns and I'll stop. Ha." SNL's cold open on Saturday focused on Trump's tweets on the social media site. The sketch showed several different tweeters that the politician has really retweeted, including a 16-year-old high school student, a man with a profile photo featuring a skull with guns, and a man thinks liberalism is a mental disease. In addition, the business mogul's tax returns have been the subject of controversy during the election. Trump famously refused to release his tax returns, saying that he was unable to because he is under IRS audit in contrast to the revenue service that had said he is free to release his tax records at any time. Trump, who has hosted 'SNL' in the past, has been slamming the hit NBC sketch comedy show for the past month, with criticisms ranging from the late-night show somehow "rigging" the election before he won to continually sniping about Baldwin's impression. 'Saturday Night Live' airs Saturdays on NBC. (ANI)
