Alec Baldwin’s uncanny Donald Trump impersonation has delighted Saturday Night Live’s audience, but it has consistently drawn ire from the man himself.

This week’s skit, in which Baldwin’s Trump keeps interrupting a security briefing to retweet a high schooler and various other random people, managed to once again offend the president-elect (despite similarities to his actual tweets). On Dec. 4, Trump tweeted that “the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse.” He called Saturday Night Live—a show he himself made an appearance on during his campaign trail—”unwatchable.”

Trump has been often provoked by Baldwin’s parody—in October, he called a skit featuring Baldwin’s impersonation a “hit job” and accused the sketch comedy show of “rigging” the election. A month later, he called SNL ”totally one-sided, biased.”

By this morning (Dec. 5), her first tweet had over 80,000 likes and over 22,000 retweets. In the rest of her viral 30-tweet rant, she made calls to “#Resist” Trump, and urged people to call out the president-elect’s “propaganda” and “fascism.” Here’s a sample of her tweets:
