Trump denies trying to shut down Saturday Night Live

According to The Daily Beast, former President Trump urged his lawyers to lean on the DOJ and FCC in the hopes they could probe or mitigate SNL and other late-night opposition like Jimmy Kimmel. Reacting to this, Trump called the story ’total Fake News.’ ’I did say, however, that Alex Baldwin has no talent, certainly when it comes to imitating me,’ he added.

Please dear God just let him back on Twitter. The bloodhounds in the MSM are going rabid with so little trump drama to froth at the mouth about.

He took no government action to shut down any form of speech or platform of communication.

Ah they are siting his tweets as proof and “sources familiar with the situation “. So his venting on Twitter but no official action is enough for a story. They also state the BS story that Trump tried to use the DIJ to overturn the election with isn’t true. He asked them to look into election fraud.

Democrats demand the FCC step in on criticism of Democrat candidates, prompting the FCC to publicly state that they shouldn't be asked to do such partisan hackery. Covered for about an hour. Trump tweets that SNL is lame. Front page news.

I deny caring what Trump did or did not say. Seriously, can I have a news cycle without him? Can these inbred activist twits move on to current events and active politicians?

This is some lazy, low-hanging fruit type reporting, but I don't actually doubt that this happened. Trump has been known to try to sue people who say negative things about him, so attempting to do something about SNL's constant roasting would kind of be par for the course with him.

Funny how many of these anti-Trump stories amount to "leader asks his advisors about available options". Oh! The horror! Is it really preferable to have a leader repeatedly stating "I get in trouble when I don't do as I'm told"?

It’s hard to say if msm lies about Trump more now that he’s out of Office than when he was in Office. I guess now that he’s banned on social media, msm can say whatever the heck they want about him with no fear of any rebuttals from Trump. But, that’s how censorship works, right?

You trump supporters have no idea how nasty and dirty trump is. You just whitewash everything he does. Well there are millions of real Americans who beg to differ.

Alex Baldwin did an excellent Trump. Trump must not be very self aware of his facial expressions and hand gestures.

Even before Trump i never understood how people could watch SNL religiously, it hasn't been funny since the 90's.
