Donald Trump slams SNL spoof and calls for end of show

Los Angeles — Donald Trump has some choice words for Saturday Night Live.

The Republican presidential candidate tweeted early on Sunday that the show's skit depicting him this week was a "hit job". Trump went on to write that it's "time to retire" the show, calling it "boring and unfunny" and adding that Alec Baldwin's portrayal of him "stinks".

Saturday's show featured a send-up of the second presidential debate held last Sunday at Washington University in St Louis.

Baldwin, who retweeted Trump's critique, has been playing him on Saturday Night Live since its 42nd season kicked off a few weeks ago, with Kate McKinnon depicting Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.

Trump himself hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live last November.
