Trump Pegs SNL Sketches as the ‘Real Scandal’ of ‘Collusion’ That ‘Should be Tested in Courts’


In his Sunday morning Tweet rants, President Donald Trump lashed out at Saturday Night Live and NBC as ‘Democrat spin machines’ and suggested they face legal trouble for it.

“A REAL scandal is the one sided coverage, hour by hour, of networks like NBC & Democrat spin machines like Saturday Night Live,” said Trump around 9 a.m. SNL’s cold open the night before featured a take on “It’s a Wonderful Life” in which an angel showed Alec Baldwin‘s Trump what the world would be like if he had never become president. The show hit him in several other sketches, including one bit in “Weekend Update” in which Colin Jost offered up “Impeachment Bingo.”

“It is all nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials,” said Trump, before suggesting it should face a court challenge.

That’s the real collusion, Trump says.

The president immediately followed that call for investigation of comedy with a tweet about the text messages between disgraced ex-FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, a frequent topic on Trump’s timeline.

And 15 minutes later, with another Michael Cohen tweet.

In both of the follow-up tweets Trump called the investigations a “Witch Hunt” again. It looks like he’s just getting started on the day’s tweeting, though. There are more churning out as we publish.
