Trump Calls For Investigation Into SNL For Airing a Rerun Of Skit Making Fun Of Him, Quickly Gets Hammered

President Donald Trump on Sunday slammed “Saturday Night Live” (“SNL”) for its repeated jokes at his expense and called on the FCC to investigate the sketch comedy show for airing a rerun featuring a skit depicting life if he had never become president.

In a pair of tweets, Trump complained that “SNL” and other late-night comedy shows “can spend all of their time knocking the same person (me), over & over, without consequences.”

Trump also wondered if the Federal Election Commission or Federal Communications Commission should look into the matter, suggesting there “must be Collusion with the Democrats and, of course, Russia!”

“Such one sided media coverage, most of it Fake News,” he added. “Hard to believe I won and am winning. Approval Rating 52%, 93% with Republicans. Sorry!”

It’s unclear what poll Trump was referring to. His approval rating in the conservative-leaning Rasmussen poll hit 52 percent on February 11 but has since dropped to 48 percent.

Trump, who is sensitive about his portrayal in the media, has often targeted “Saturday Night Live” the morning after the show aired sketches poking fun at him.

The thin-skinned president last week complained twice about late-night comedy shows after the subject was discussed on “Fox & Friends.”

Twitter users were not amused and quickly fired back:
