Trump Calls For 'Retribution' Against NBC After SNL Mocks ‘Fake’ Emergency Declaration
President Trump went after 'Saturday Night Live' in a Sunday tweet.
President Trump has called for retribution against NBC after the show "Saturday Night Live" made fun of his national emergency declaration over border wall funding.
"Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC!" Trump tweeted Sunday.
"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's rebuke comes the morning after the SNL episode performed a mocking reenactment of the Rose Garden press conference Trump held Friday to announce the declaration.
In the SNL version of Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, he says during the opening: "Let's cut to the chase, folks.
We need wall.
We have a tremendous amount of drugs flowing into this country from the southern border, or the Brown Line as many people have asked me not to call it."
"We need wall because wall works," Baldwin adds.
"Wall make safe.
You don't have to be smart to understand that.
In fact, it's even easier to understand if you're not that smart.
You can all see why I gotta fake this national emergency, right?"
