Trump Threatens Saturday Night Live With “Retribution”

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Sunday accused major news networks of engaging in “collusion” against his administration, asking how NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” could get away with “hit jobs” without retribution.

The tweet from Trump came just a day after “Saturday Night Live” took aim at his move to declare a national emergency to fund the construction of his long-promised border wall.

Actor Alec Baldwin, who has repeatedly impersonated Trump throughout his presidency, called the emergency “fake” and called out many of the justifications Trump used to support it.

NBC News reports:

“Saturday Night Live” enlisted Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump to deride the president’s declaration of national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border.

“I’m here to declare a very urgent, important national emergency,” he said. “This is a big one so I don’t want to waste any time. I just had a great health exam. I’m still standing 6 foot 7, 185 pounds. Shredded.”

“We need wall, okay,” he added, sounding a little bit like Tonto, Tarzan and Frankenstein. “Wall works. Wall makes safe. Abuelas and bebes unless you give me wall.”
