"I just retweeted the best tweet. I mean, wow, what a great, smart tweet," Baldwin's Trump explained to Kate McKinnon's Kellyanne Conway.
"I really did retweet him, seriously," he reiterated, looking directly into the camera to break the fourth wall.
"He really did do this," Conway added to the camera.
"It was from a young man named Seth. He's 16 and he's in high school, and I really did retweet him," the president-elect continued. "Seth seems so cool -- his twitter bio says he wants to make America great again. It also says he loves the Anaheim Ducks."
All of this is going on in the sketch while Trump's transition team and advisers are trying to explain the nuances of international diplomacy, but it's hard for Trump to pay attention when he's so busy finding random people to retweet.
In her on-going attempt to begrudgingly explain all of Trump's questionable behavior, Conway explained that Trump tweets so much to "distract the media from his business conflicts and the scary people in his cabinet."
"Actually, that's not why I do it," Trump replied. "I do it because my brain is bad."
In real life, the 70-year-old businessman appeared to be watching Baldwin's impression, because he immediately jumped on Twitter to slam SNL for mocking his propensity for over-using the social networking platform.
"Just tried watching Saturday Night Live - unwatchable!" Trump tweeted. "Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can't get any worse. Sad."
Morton himself jumped on the opportunity to capitalize on his 15 minutes of fame by responding to Trump's tweet, agreeing, "Agreed, very unfunny! Regardless, thank you for retweeting me, and giving me the opportunity to be mentioned on SNL - @realDonaldTrump."

Later in the evening, Baldwin took to Twitter to respond to Trump's complaint, offering to stop doing the impression if the president-elect agreed to release his tax returns -- something Trump refused to do throughout the election.
