Shortly after Donald Trump pulled off one of the biggest political upsets in history, the new president-elect announced that he would be "very restrained" when it came to his use of Twitter and other forms of social media. Since then, he's struggled to keep his word.

Baldwin backlash

A few weeks before Election Day, Donald Trump had enough of "Saturday Night Live" (SNL) taking humorous shots at him and called for the show to be removed from the air. Despite SNL being known for its political satire for decades, the former host of "The Apprentice" doesn't appear to get the joke.

After their latest episode, Trump took to his offical Twitter account to express his angry at the program, calling the show biased, while also asking for equal time. In response, actor Alec Baldwin, who plays Trump on the show, used his own Twitter account on November 20 to offer a response.

"Equal time?, Election is over.

There is no more equal time," Baldwin tweeted, before adding, "Now u try 2 b Pres + ppl respond. That's pretty much it." Baldwin didn't stop there, as he continued with follow-up messages directed at the future commander in chief. "You know what I would do if I were Prez?," Baldwin rhetorically asked, "I'd be focused on how to improve the lives of AS MANY AMERICANS AS POSSIBLE."

"I'd be focused on improving our reputation abroad, including actually fighting for freedom and not just oil," the actor continued. "I would make appointments that encouraged people, not generate fear and doubt," Alec Baldwin wrote, concluding his final tweet as of press time.

Rough weekend

In additional to his attack on "Saturday Night Live," Trump has spend much of the last 48 hours going after the cast of the musical "Hamilton." On Friday night, Vice President-elect Mike Pence stepped away from his duties as head of the transition team and attended a performance of the musical. After Pence was booed by a portion of the audience as he arrived at the show, the cast addressed him during the curtain call and expressed their concerns about the administration's goals.

Trump expressed his anger at the cast in multiple tweets since the incident, but Pence doesn't appear to be too upset.

While speaking to "Fox News Sunday," Pence said he "wasn't offended," and made sure to praise the performance in the process.
