President Donald Trump has previously made his displeasure about Alec Baldwin’s portrayal of him on “Saturday Night Live” crystal clear, but on Sunday he took his griping to a whole new level in a series of tweets blasting the show, threatening to launch federal investigations and accusing “SNL” of colluding with both Democrats and Russia.
“SNL”, currently in its 44th season, has made fun of every president in the White House since its debut in 1975, yet Trump is the first to be so ticked off about it that he’s threatening to have the Federal Communications Commission and the Federal Election Commission investigate.
“It’s truly incredible that shows like ‘Saturday Night Live’, not funny/no talent, can spend all their time knocking the same person (me), over & over, without so much of a mention of ‘the other side,'” wrote Trump in a pair of tweets.
“….Should Federal Election Commission and/or FCC look into this?” he continued. “There must be Collusion with the Democrats and, of course, Russia! Such one sided media coverage, most of it Fake News.”
Oddly enough, there wasn’t even a new episode of “Saturday Night Live” this weekend for Trump to complain about; the episode aired was a rerun from December, in which Alec Baldwin played Trump in a spoof of the Jimmy Stewart holiday classic “It’s a Wonderful Life”, with the president learning how much better off the world would be had he not been elected.
Trump must have really hated that sketch, because he issued a similar tweet back in December after it originally aired.
