Alec Baldwin has taunted Donald Trump Jr. on Twitter telling him he can tune into Saturday Night Live from prison as they traded blows following the actor’s latest skit that made fun of the President. 

During the opening sketch of last week’s show, Baldwin reprised his role as the President to make fun of his national emergency press conference. 

Don Jr. lashed out on Monday following the skit after Baldwin tweeted that President Trump’s ongoing criticism of SNL constituted a threat to the actor’s family.

In response, Baldwin tweeted: ‘You know, Junior, I’m sure u r stressed, facing a possible indictment and prison time for being part of the first criminal enterprise to operate out of the (White House).

‘But don’t worry. Tune in @nbcsnl while you are in the slammer. Your dad and his nuttiness will never be far away.’

It came after Don Jr. had weighed in on Twitter to defend his father. 

‘The guy that punches people in the face over a parking spot, has aggressively harassed paparazzi, and humiliated his daughter berating her over the phone eye etc is worried about a tweet that doesn’t even mention him? Okay. Spare everyone your bulls**t Alec!

‘Oh, Don’t forget the homophobic slurs… this clown is such a mess it’s hard to keep track.’ 

Don Jr. was referring to a series of legal troubles Baldwin had faced, including a recent parking spot dispute in New York in November. 

The Twitter feud was sparked when President Trump fired up about SNL’s latest episode and questioned how the show could get away with ‘Republican hit jobs without retribution’. 

Following Trump’s criticism, Baldwin tweeted: ‘I wonder if a sitting President exhorting his followers that my role in a TV comedy qualifies me as an enemy of the people constitutes a threat to my safety and that of my family?’

Baldwin’s response sparked backlash from Don Jr and it resulted in him and the actors trading a series of Twitter barbs. 

The actor went on to slam Don Jr. in a series of other tweets, which were sent from his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter account.

‘Who should play Donald Trump Jr in the biopic DONALD TRUMP JR, SAFARI TO OBSCURITY? I thought Peter Lorre, but he’s dead. Make your suggestions here,’ his tweet read. 

‘The sequel to DONALD TRUMP JR, SAFARI TO OBSCURITY is already in development. Set in an inmate theatre project, BODILY FLUIDS follows Don Jr through the painful adjustments he must make as he digs down into his underdeveloped psyche to find a strength he never knew existed.’

His final tweet read: ‘The third installment of the Donald Trump Jr prison saga, BLOOD ON MY KNIFE, OR… has been optioned by Starz…’
