Tonight Show Writer Claps Back at Trump’s ‘Equal Time’ Tweets: ‘That’s Not How It Works’
President Donald Trump got his day started by picking up his phone and shotting out some tweets demanding “equal time” from late-night hosts and networks as he complained about the “unfunny” jokes being directed his way by late show comedians. He also indicated that the hosts were in cahoots with Democrats.
A writer from one of those late-night shows decided to fire back on Twitter and wanted the president to know that isn’t really how the “equal-time rule” works. Tonight Show writer/producer Mike DiCenzo sent out the following tweet this morning:
That's not how it works. You're not campaigning. You're the president. Now kindly stop tweeting nonsense and go do your job for once. https://t.co/KoKf0xUNdR

DiCenzo wasn’t the only one from the late shows to hit back against the president. ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel responded to Trump’s tweet by telling Trump that if he quit “his boring job” he could have Kimmel’s show “full time.”
