Trump threatens ’SNL’ with federal investigation

Trump threatens ’SNL’ with federal investigation

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Sunday to slam ’Saturday Night Live’ for its repeated jokes about his presidency. His tweet came after the show aired a rerun the night before that featured a sketch depicting life if Trump had not become president. Trump even called for federal regulation of the comedy show. He slammed the show for its ’one sided media coverage’.

This is one of the things that I disagree with Trump on. Comedy is comedy no matter how lame, offensive, or overdone it is.

Trump..... your a conservative. Please stop threatening people with government over reach.

Most people have been saying how criminally unfunny SNL has been for decades, but this is probably a step too far.

It's shitty comedy, for sure. Can't investigate "comedians" for shit jokes though.

I get the frustration of having to deal with SNL's clear bias in their "comedy", but calling for an investigation? Dude, it's a TV show. Just let it kill itself, don't rush them.

Does anyone actually find the skits funny anymore? I mean when he was running he even made fun of himself on it and that’s what made it entertaining. But cmon. The same joke is not funny after 4 years.

Yes, here we are again with the "small government" party calling for more laws. Guess there really IS no difference after all. Idiots!

Well, it’s their right and freedom on speech to do that, as much as others might not like it, it’s still our rights and it should never be taken away.

Of course it has a hard liberal slant... I’m not sure why this is news lol I’m not sure why it should be regulated if he actually said those things then I’m strongly against it. Even as irritating as the constant right wing conservative bashing they do gets, I’m never for extending the governments grasp over things. Certainly in this case, especially in this case.

Okay, while I agree with him, giving them the attention they want is playing into their hands...

SNL has made fun of every president since they've been on the air. It's fascist Trump that wants to silence their free speech! This is what totalitarianism looks like.

Relax. Tweets are not policy. He knows he can't do that and I doubt he's serious anyway.
