On Twitter this weekend, St. Louis activist Danielle Muscato (@daniellemuscato) gained a lot of attention for writing that President-elect Donald Trump was “embarrassing” himself by his regular tweets attacking “Saturday Night Live,” calling him a fraud who “never wanted to win anyway.”

This past weekend Trump once again took to Twitter to criticize “SNL,” after the show opened with Trump impersonator Alec Baldwin mocking Trump as a serial tweeter.

Muscato joins Here & Now‘s Robin Young to talk about the social media interactions.

Editor’s note: A previous version of this article characterized Danielle Muscato as a Black Lives Matter activist when in fact that’s not the only organization with which she is involved.
