Trump says 'Saturday Night Live' is 'Democrat Spin Machine'

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

Saturday Night Live ended 2018 with a special parody of It's a Wonderful Life, which imagined the world without Trump as president.

Although SNL has been mocking political leaders, celebrities, and just about everyone else for over 43 years, its opposition to Trump has taken the show's confrontation with the White House to a new level.

The real Donald Trump must not have enjoyed it too much, though, because on Sunday morning he tweeted his disdain for the show (which he has twice been host to prior to his presidency), calling it a "Democrat spin machine" that "defame [s] and belittle [s]" him. Trump on 16 December called SNL and NBC "democratic spin machines".

Baldwin's Trump walked through the White House wondering "what are those things on their faces", only to be told that they are "smiles".

As the sketch progresses, Baldwin's Trump is visited by a number of people, including Aidy Bryant's Sarah Sanders, now a successful PR person, and a guilt-free Kellyanne Conway, played by Kate McKinnon.

Canelo outclasses Fielding by third-round TKO
Saul "Canelo" Alvarez knocked Rocky Fielding down four times in an emphatic third-round stoppage win in NY . He defeated Rocky Fielding via TKO to win the WBA Super-Middleweight Championship.

Most recently, SNL released a sketch that showed a world where Donald Trump isn't the President of America.

The president accused NBC, the weekly comedy show's network, of "one-sided" coverage.

While Trump's point may have actually held legal weight in the 20th century, the The Fairness Doctrine, which required that TV and radio stations devote some of their programming to conroversial public issues and give airtime to opposing views on said issues, was abolished in 1987. Should be tested in courts, can't be legal?

In the sketch, which you can watch above, Clarence grants Trump's wish and the two walk through a Christmas party.

Baldwin went on to say: 'Remember that once Trump is gone, by whatever means, + is replaced by a competent/duly elected successor, it will be necessary 4 all in this country 2 offer their support 2 that man/woman. Brett Kavanaugh (Matt Damon) wouldn't become a Supreme Court justice, but he would still love beer.
