Donald Trump wasn’t the only one venting his frustrations on Twitter early Sunday morning. The president-elect once again attacked Muscato and Baldwin the latest episode of Saturday Night Live, calling the comedy show “unwatchable,” despite appearing to set aside time each week to critique the show himself.
But one woman was not having any of it.
Civil rights activist Danielle Muscato’s tweets went viral over the weekend after he attacked Saturday Night Live once again early Sunday, December 4. She immediately blasted into Trump via tweet replies “embarrassing” himself on Twitter instead of preparing to govern, attacking the president-elect for tweeting about frivolities instead of focusing on the lives of the Americans he now represents.
In the weeks after winning the 2016 presidential election, Trump has been criticized for refusing to tone down his presence the social media platform. He has attacked journalists and claimed that millions voted illegally.
How Did Muscato-Trump Fight Start?
Muscato apparently had enough on Saturday after Trump whined about Alec Baldwin’s portrayal of him on Saturday Night Live. By Sunday, her tweets had been shared thousands of times.
“Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable!” Trump, 70, tweeted shortly after the NBC comedy show aired a cold open sketch poking fun at his frequent Twitter rants. “Totally biased, not funny and the [Alec] Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse. Sad.”
Muscato, a self-proclaimed atheist and trans woman, was not amused by the PEOTUS’ post and promptly launched into an online tirade. Her blistering, profanity-laced tweets later garnered tens of thousands of likes and retweets.
“Jesus f–king Christ, @realDonaldTrump,” she wrote. “You are the president-elect. Pick your f–king battles, man. You’re embarrassing yourself. Baldwin’s impression isn’t ‘Sad.’ You know what’s sad? In 7 wks you’ll be responsible for 330m lives & you can’t think of anything better to do than tweet abt a comedy show. You know that actual lives are at stake, right? You’re pathetic.”
Muscato’s first tweet was liked more than 30,000 times — but she was nowhere close to finished.
“This is not a joke, Donald,” Muscato continued. “Don’t you have anything better to do? Are you so narcissistic that a PARODY is your priority? Do you know how many trans people were murdered since Election Day? Do you know how many veterans killed themselves? Do you know how many children went to bed tonight without enough food to eat? Do you even care? What is *wrong* with you?”
She concluded: “No, of course you don’t know those things. You don’t even know what a ‘blind trust’ [is], and you call yourself a businessman. You’re pathetic. You ran for prez for attention. You are a fake, a fraud. You never wanted to win anyway; we can all see it.”
Viral Anti-Donald Trump Fallout
Over the course of two hours, Muscato unleashed a fiery tirade against Trump, with some 30 separate tweets in all.
The rant immediately went viral. In all, her tweets were liked more than 200,000 times, but not everyone was amused by her venting at the president-to-be.
“This is how you get on a terrorist watch-list,” one user posted. “Just stop the crap and just grow the hell up,” said another.
Ultimately, Muscato called for decent Americans to take a stand against the racism, homophobia and bigotry that has flared since Trump’s election.
