THE GOOD NEWS:


Alec Baldwin plans to continue playing Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live” as long as Trump’s in office.

On March 2, President Trump awoke in a White House mired in chaos. The Russians are saber-rattling, special prosecutor Robert Mueller is closing in on his son-in-law, and the rats are fleeing his sinking ship in droves, but he took the time to rip on actor Alec Baldwin on Twitter.

Baldwin impersonates Trump on “Saturday Night Live” and is a major reason the show is more popular than it’s been in decades.

Trump deleted his first childish attempt to stick it to Baldwin because it was littered with typos. Trump even misspelled his target’s first name.

After a little proofreading, the leader of the free world sent out a typo-free rant. It was full of his usual self-aggrandizement, claiming that Baldwin’s “dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation.” It also praised Darrell Hammond, the “SNL” cast member who played Trump before being replaced by Baldwin in 2016.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Baldwin admitted that playing Trump was agonizing because of how he’s running the country. “Every time I do it now, it’s like agony. Agony. I can’t,” he said. “If things don’t go in the right direction for the midterms. … I could go out on the street, stand on any corner, and tap 10 people on the shoulder. And all 10 of them, in all likelihood, would be more qualified — ethically, morally, intellectually, and spiritually — than Trump.”

On Twitter, Baldwin fired back at Trump, saying he can’t wait to relish in his demise.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Trump and Baldwin have sparred on Twitter. In 2016, the then-president-elect took shots at “SNL” when Baldwin first began playing Trump.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
