Donald Trump bemoans 'unfair' coverage on NBC, Saturday Night Live

  • 'Saturday Night Live' Reimagines 'It's a Wonderful Life' With Trump as President

Last night's SNL Cold Open dreamed of a world where Donald Trump wasn't President, bringing back almost all of the stars - including Alec Baldwin as Trump, Ben Stiller as Michael Cohen. Trump tweeted at the time.

President Trump blasted NBC and specifically "Saturday Night Live" in a weird tweet Sunday, basically saying it "can't be legal" for the show to make fun of him every week.

The POTUS took to his Twitter account to attack SNL and NBC Sunday morning just hours after the sketch comedy show aired a particularly relentless edition of the show.

CNN's Alisyn Camerota decried the criticism from President Donald Trump against Saturday Night Live in a scathing commentary during the cable news broadcast Monday. Alec Baldwin, of course, assumed his position to portray Trump. In the sketch, Alec Baldwin reprises his role as Trump, who is shown a much happier, alternate reality in which he is not in office.

"Those are called smiles", Thompson's angel replies.

"I guess the world does need me to be president!" he says. Trump has inspired something truly wonderful, namely a level of activism - largely in opposition to him and his administration - that we would not have seen had Hillary Clinton won the election. Should be tested in courts, can't be legal?

Portions of FBI Interview with Flynn Released
When asked if he thought Monday's testimony was useful or merely a political maneuver by House Republicans, Comey said he couldn't say.

This holiday season, some may be wishing for a world without Donald Trump as President- even Trump himself.

He said they must rally behind the person who eventually replaces Trump.

So what is this really about, besides Trump's goal to use "collusion" to refer to as many creative scenarios as possible other than his presidential campaign?

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh (host Matt Damon) is relieved he didn't get appointed - more time to hang out with friends P.J. and Squee.

Trump and SNL share a rocky relationship, with the President calling Baldwin's performance an agony for people forced to watch it.
