Trump Threatens 'SNL' With Federal Investigation

Trump Threatens 'SNL' With Federal Investigation Donald Trump took to Twitter on March 16 to voice his distaste for NBC’s ’Saturday Night Live.’ The episode that prompted his reaction was a rerun from 2018 that featured a sketch in which Alec Baldwin portrayed Trump.

He complained that the show spends “all of their time knocking [him], over & over.” Trump suggested that ‘SNL’ was colluding against him, and threatened to investigate.

The “equal time rule” mandates that U.S. broadcast television give equal air-time opportunities to opposing political candidates, if requested.

However, Trump is no longer a candidate and ‘SNL’ is a parody show, making it immune to the type of investigation he suggested.

This isn’t the first time Trump has suggested action against 'SNL.'

In December of 2018, he called its “one sided coverage” a scandal, and in February, he voiced his frustration at the lack of "retribution" they face.
