Civil rights activist goes off on Trump after he bashes ‘SNL’

She’s not backing down.

After Saturday Night Live’s cold open this weekend made fun of Donald Trump’s inability to stop tweeting and retweeting random 16-year-olds, the president-elect almost immediately tweeted his disapproval.

One Twitter user has had enough of Trump’s SNL sensitivity. Danielle Muscato, who identifies as a civil rights activist in her bio on the site, took to the social media site early Sunday morning and blasted off a fiery 32-part tweetstorm.

Muscato then called on “progressives, Democrats, independents AND Republicans to #RESIST @realDonaldTrump. #RESIST fascism, crony capitalism, hypocrisy!”

It does not appear as though Trump or any of his surrogates responded to Muscato.

This weekend was not the first time Trump bashed Alec Baldwin’s unflattering impression of him. He’s tweeted about the show at least twice during this TV season, and though SNL hasn’t directly addressed Trump’s continued insults, it’s clear the show doesn’t mind provoking him.

It’s his response to that criticism that makes people like Muscato scared about the next four years.
