Our seemingly thin-skinned head of state apparently got his feelings hurt yet again by a skit that appeared on “Saturday Night Live,” and now he’s threatening legal action against NBC in retaliation.
Trump, who has never been able to laugh at himself, must have seen the satirical take “SNL” did on the classic Christmas movie “It’s a Wonderful Life,” in which the show suggested how much better the world would be if Trump had never elected, so he lashed out on Twitter:
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?

Keep in mind that Trump has suggested in the past that he never watches “SNL” because it’s not funny and Alec Baldwin’s impersonation of him is mean and inaccurate. Clearly, the president watches the show and cannot stand to be made fun of. But rather than just letting the entire thing roll off his shoulders and ignore the show, he can’t help but draw more attention to the fact that people are laughing at his expense.
The laughter continued on social media, where Trump was reminded what a shallow, pathetic little man-child he is:
They DEFAMED and BELITTLED you, the master of belittlement and defamation?? Fabulous!!! 😁

Yeah, you sued Bill Maher for parody and the judge literally laughed. What do you think a court is going to say when SNL pulls out 40 years of clips of them poking fun of presidents and labels you a #whineylittlebitch once and for all?

Wait…wait…I know you don’t get fiction is different from facts but you do understand that SNL is not a news program right? And we generally are not fans of censorship by the government because of FREEDOM. But yeah, sure you totally have a thick skin.

Here’s the skit that offended Trump so much. Judge for yourself (we think it is pretty funny):
