Alec Baldwin, a longtime critic of President TrumpDonald TrumpFacebook temporarily bans ads for weapons accessories following Capitol riots Sasse, in fiery op-ed, says QAnon is destroying GOP Section 230 worked after the insurrection, but not before: How to regulate social media MORE whose impression of Trump on "Saturday Night Live" has earned him an Emmy, lashed out at the president's supporters this week, accusing them of causing the "near moral collapse of this country."

In a series of tweets posted from the Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation's Twitter account, Baldwin directed a tirade at Trump voters for a supposed "desecration" of American ideals.

"American democracy has always been a struggle between the misaligned protections of specific freedoms and a raging, at times intoxicating, 12 cylinder economy. It demanded vigilant/consistent regulation, compassion for the disenfranchised, and the periodic display of a necessary sacrifice that allowed for the long term health of our society at the expense of short term whims," he tweeted.

"The desecration of those ideals and the near moral collapse of this country falls squarely in the lap of Trump’s supporters, as opposed to Trump himself, who is merely what psychology labels the 'objective negative function,'" Baldwin continued.

The actor plays Trump as an inept, corrupt leader on "Saturday Night Live," earning criticism from multiple White House officials.

"I made him as two-dimensional as I believe he deserves to be made. And we’ve certainly vulgarized it from time to time, beyond certain limitations. But it’s essentially us repeating back what he says, and just holding up a mirror to what he says and does," Baldwin said of his impersonation in April.
