President-elect Donald Trump isn't done bashing Hamilton — at least not until the Sunday morning talk shows are done taping or perhaps the country has forgotten about the $25 million he paid to settle the Trump University fraud case on Friday, whichever comes first.
The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 20, 2016
And on Sunday morning, he renewed his feud with Saturday Night Live and Alec Baldwin, who returned for the cold open of this week's show, playing him as weary of the transition and nervous about taking office.
"I watched parts of Saturday Night Live last night," he tweeted. "It is a totally one-sided, biased show - nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?"
Baldwin wasn't having it, reminding the president-elect that we've entered the next stage, where presidential actions count more than words.
"Equal time? Election is over," Baldwin retorted. "There is no more equal time. Now u try 2 b Pres + ppl respond. That's pretty much it."

And despite Trump's criticism of Hamilton, Twitter users are pointing out his daughter Ivanka's high praise of the musical earlier this year. when she tweeted: "I had very high expectations and they were still surpassed!"
I am hearing it is overrated tho. https://t.co/NTD8aR3aE7— John Hodgman (@hodgman) November 20, 2016
