WASHINGTON – President Trump has once again turned to "Saturday Night Live," suggesting that television networks should pay a heavy price for delivering such a scathing satire.
"No fun for the tired Saturday night on Fake News NBC! The question is how do the networks get along with these total Republican jobs without retribution? Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be examined. That's the real collusion! Trump wrote on Sunday morning.
Saturday's show, "SNL" was ushered in with a skit starring Alec Baldwin as Trump and mocking the president's statement that the country would be in a state of emergency to secure funding for a wall along the southern border. The skit canceled Friday the announcement of Trump's Rose Garden in a series of sinuous statements.
"We need a wall because the wall works. The wall is secure. You do not have to be smart to understand that, and in fact, it's even easier to understand if you're not that smart. "
This is the seventh tweet that Trump has posted on "Saturday Night Live" since he hosted the show in November 2015 right in the middle of his presidential campaign. But he recently suggested that legal action be brought against NBC.
"A TRUE scandal is the one-hour, hour-by-hour coverage of networks such as NBC & Democrat spin machines like Saturday Night Live. This is nothing less than an unfair press coverage and Dem commercials. Should be tested in court, can not be legal? Only defame & belittle! Collusion? "He writes on December 16th.
Some presidents took "Saturday Night Live" with good humor. President George HW Bush invited Dana Carvey to the White House after Carvey imitated him on the show during the 1992 presidential campaign. In 1976, Gerald R. Ford almost took the role of Chevy Chase's klutz inviting the comedian to the White House and even making an appearance in "SNL".
