Dec. 17 (UPI) — U.S. President Donald Trump took to Twitter to slam Saturday Night Live as being part of a “Democrat spin machine” Sunday.
“A REAL scandal is the one sided coverage, hour by hour, of networks like NBC & Democrat spin machines like Saturday Night Live. It is all nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials. Should be tested in courts, can’t be legal? Only defame & belittle! Collusion?” Trump tweeted.
The show had hours earlier parodied the alternate-reality, holiday classic It’s A Wonderful Life, imagining how much happier the people in Trump’s world would be had Trump not been elected president in 2016.
