President-elect Donald Trump has once again tweeted Saturday Night Live (SNL) in anger, apparently failing to see the irony at doing so straight after the show mocked his compulsive Twitter habit.

The show's latest sketch satirising his presidential campaign and administration saw Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, erratically tweeting citizens instead of paying attention to a security briefing, while campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, portrayed by Kate McKinnon, tries desperately to keep the business mogul's focus.

In response, real-life Trump angrily posted: "Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can't get any worse. Sad".

This is, of course, not the first time the seemly oversensitive president-elect has voiced his displeasure at comedians exorcising their constitutionally protected right to free speech.

Following SNL's first post-election skit, he labelled the programme "totally one-sided," "biased" and containing "nothing funny at all".

Baldwin hit back, suggesting that as president-elect he should now focus on the task of leading the US.

Before Trump sensationally beat Democratic rival Hillary Clinton on 9 November, it had been suggested Trump would no longer have access to his Twitter account, but now appears not to have happened.

The latest rant came just hours after the Republican attended a 'Heroes and Villains' fancy dress party in Long Island, New York, hosted by hedge fund manager Robert Mercer, who donated $2m (£1.57m) to the pro-Trump super-PAC Make America Number 1 with his wife Diana. The super-PAC was later headed by their daughter Rebekah Mercer.

Conway posted a picture of herself dressed as Superwoman alongside Trump at the event, who remained in his traditional suit, before describing him as "the ultimate hero" in the caption.

The party appearance only served strengthen accusations made in last night's SNL sketch that Trump is too frequently distracted from presidential duties.

In the segment, Baldwin's Trump dismisses the idea that his social media use is overshadowing his broader national commitments.

"That's not true. I was elected 25 days ago and already unemployment is at a nine-year low, millions and millions of people have healthcare, and Osama bin Laden is dead," he retorts, listing achievements all made under President Obama's administration.

"Next, I'm going to do what I promised my whole campaign – I'm going to build that swamp."

"Don't you mean drain the swamp and build the wall?" Conway chips in.

"No, that's too many things," he concludes. "Just smoosh them together."
