Donald Trump attacks 'Saturday Night Live' for mocking him again

Donald Trump and the NBC show, Saturday Night Live, have shared a rocky relationship in recent times despite the President of America having himself hosted the late-night sketch twice.

It is no secret that Trump does not respond well to criticism and SNL has once again irked him by making fun of his decision to declare a national emergency.

Read what happened, here.

The wall

Trump declared a national emergency to get his wall built

Since Trump's first attempt to get the budget allocated for the US-Mexico wall was met with opposition within the government, the President went on to declare a national emergency.

According to the White House's statement, this executive action, which is likely to be legally challenged, is supposed to allow the President to 'ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border'.

Good humor

Alec Baldwin returned to poke fun at Trump on 'SNL'

Alec Baldwin has continued parodying Trump on SNL for some time now, much to the irritation of the man in the Oval Office.

A day after the emergency was declared, Baldwin in the show's cold open made fun of the speech, on the general stupidity behind the need for a wall.

The parody also hinted at how this move could potentially ruin Trump's presidency.

Response

Trump hits back, calls SNL 'the real Collusion'

Trump did not take too kindly to this parody and hit back with a retaliatory tweet.

It read, "Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC! Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution? Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion!"

Very unfair and should be looked into, says Trump

Previous attacks

Trump has previously lashed out at 'SNL' as well

Trump has previously attacked SNL as well, calling the show 'unwatchable', 'totally biased', 'not funny', 'a hit job' and demanded that it 'be tested in the courts'.

However, his recent tweet might just be the most asinine yet.

Thankfully, the USA takes its freedom of speech pretty seriously, without which, poking fun at their leader might have landed Baldwin and SNL in serious trouble.
