"Well, I hosted 'SNL' when it was a good show, but it's not a good show anymore,” Trump told NBC’s “Today” show after he was named Time magazine's Person of the Year. 

Trump focused on Alec Baldwin's impersonation of the billionaire.

"I like Alec, but his imitation of me is really mean-spirited and not very good. I don't think it's good," Trump said. "And I do like him and I like him as an actor but I don't think that his imitation of me gets me at all and it's meant to be very mean spirited, which is very biased."

Trump hosted the show in November 2015,  during his run for the Republican nomination. But the president-elect recently has become critical of the show.

“Just tried watching Saturday Night Live - unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can't get any worse. Sad” Trump tweeted just after midnight on Sunday, after the show aired a skit mocking Trump’s twitter use.
