President-elect Donald Trump isn’t happy with Saturday Night Live, the popular late-night comedy show that pokes fun at politicians.

Trump tweeted early Sunday that he watched “parts” of last night’s show and didn’t like it: “It is a totally one-sided, biased show – nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?”

On the show, actor Alec Baldwin portrayed Trump as ignorant on foreign policy and using Google to ask “What is ISIS?”

Also on Sunday, Trump renewed his complaints about the Broadway hit “Hamilton.” His Twitter rants come as his transition team was focused on vetting potential candidates for his administration.
