U.S. President Donald Trump rarely seems to forget being scorned as he took a potshot at an old enemy on Twitter Monday night: the Emmy Awards.

Trump’s show The Apprentice was nominated for an Emmy in 2004 and again in 2005.

While Trump never won the award, Alec Baldwin won one this year for his portrayal of the U.S. president on Saturday Night Live.

Trump interrupted her, saying, “Should’ve gotten it.”
