Trump Throws a Tantrum Over Comedians ‘Unfunny’ Jokes About Him, And Twitter Responded

President Trump started his Saturday with a flurry of tweets attacking pretty much everyone who doesn’t praise him, but especially late-night comedians and the media, whining that Republicans aren’t given “equal time” to Democrats on television.

“Late Night hosts are dealing with the Democrats for their very “unfunny” & repetitive material, always anti-Trump!” Trump tweeted. “Should we get Equal Time?”

“More and more people are suggesting that Republicans (and me) should be given Equal Time on T.V. when you look at the one-sided coverage?” he added.

Of course, when Trump refers to “more and more people” he’s talking about the people at Fox News.

Trump’s tweets came about an hour after Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” aired a segment accusing late-night comedians like Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel of “taking a hard turn to the left.”

In recent weeks Kimmel has delivered emotional monologues against the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare as well as lawmakers’ responses to the mass shooting at a Las Vegas music festival.

Kimmel became the public face of opposition against the Graham-Cassidy bill after he slammed Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) for failing his own “Jimmy Kimmel test” for healthcare bills.

And this week, Kimmel broke down while discussing the Las Vegas shooting, saying “it’s the kind of thing that makes you want to throw up or give up” while slamming lawmakers for their response to the tragedy.

“I don’t know why our so-called leaders continue to allow this to happen,” Kimmel said. “Or maybe a better question is why do we continue to let them allow it to happen.”

Here’s how Twitter responded to Trump’s complaint:
