On Saturday, the TV show “Saturday Night Live” made a comedic skit about Donald Trump declaring a National Emergency. The following morning, the President made an angry tweet that targeted Saturday Night Live. In his tweet, the presided stated, “Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC! Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution? Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion!”
The President later tweeted out, “THE RIGGED AND CORRUPT MEDIA IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!”
The statements from the President suggests that he wants consequences for SNL’s skit. A punishment for SNL would be a violation of the first amendment. Not only that, but many people would also ridicule the President for not being able to take a joke.
Donald Trump has been known for attacking anything that shows him in a negative manner. Him attacking SNL for making a comedic skit really showed this.
