Donald Trump responded to the Screen Actors Guild (SAG-AFTRA) on Thursday after the agency took a vote and threatened to cancel his membership over the January 6th Capitol riots that the former president incited. Donald Trump’s letter was so Donald Trump. It was akin to, “You can’t fire me, I quit!” Trump was clearly bothered by the request for him to resign as he added, “Who cares!” in his rant to the guild.
In the former president’s Trumpian letter, he appeared to denigrate union President Gabrielle Carteris — who played Andrea Zuckerman on Fox’s “Beverly Hills 90210″ — before touting the cameos he has appeared in.
“While I’m not familiar with your work, I’m very proud of my work on movies such as Home Alone 2, Zoolander and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps; and television shows including The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saturday Night Live, and of course, one of the most successful shows in television history, The Apprentice ― to name just a few!” Trump wrote in his letter.
Trump went on to insist that he “greatly helped the cable news television business,” which he went on to suggest was “a dying platform with not much time left until I got involved in politics,” and that he “created thousands of jobs at networks such as MSDNC and Fake News CNN, among many others.”
Yeah, he brought up “fake news CNN” in the letter to the president of the Screen Actors Guild. He just can’t help himself.
The insurrectionist-inciting, twice-impeached, super spreading former reality show star host accused Carteris of engaging in a “blatant attempt at free media attention to distract from your dismal record as a union,” and accused SAG-AFTRA of doing little for its members “besides collecting dues and promoting dangerous un-American policies and ideas.”
This is the first I have learned that SAG-AFTRA promotes dangerous policies, but OK.
LMAO, imagine being so small and petty that you write to SAG-AFTRA to say “I quit” before they can remove you.
Who cares? HE cares. 🤣🤣🤣 pic.twitter.com/KR3FUUCR5D

Trump then insisted that he no longer wanted to be affiliated with the Guild, and said, “You have done nothing for me.”
Carteris and David White, the union’s national executive director, responded to Trump’s crazy-time letter by not acknowledging anything the former president said, but just wrote, “Thank you,” according to the Daily News. A short response is the best response to a malignant narcissist’s rant.
