Donald Trump wants the courts to determine if it is legal for 'Saturday Night Live' to 'belittle' him

President Trump says the justice system should stop investigating his administration and go after the real enemy – “Saturday Night Live.”

During a series of Sunday morning tweets attacking everyone from his former attorney Michael Cohen to Hillary Clinton, the President slipped in the suggestion that NBC’s long-running comedy skit program should be “tested in courts,” seemingly for its alleged “collusion” with Democratic party operatives.

“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?” the President wrote.

The previous night, “Saturday Night Live” opened their weekly program with a segment inspired by “It’s a Wonderful Life” in which the cast wonders what the world might have been like had Trump not been elected president.

In the skit, Alec Baldwin reprised his role as Trump and was joined onstage by Matt Damon, playing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who never made it to the highest court in the land. Robert De Niro appears as special investigator Robert Mueller. Marc Ronson and Miley Cyrus were the musical guests.
