Trump promised ‘retribution’ after Alec Baldwin’s latest SNL sketch about the US president

Donald Trump promised ‘retribution’ after Alec Baldwin’s latest SNL sketch about the US president.

Taking to Twitter, he launched into a tirade about the comedy act, in which Baldwin reprised his role as the president and parodied his recent press conference.

“Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC!” he wrote.

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.

His words come after Baldwin wore a blonde wig, rocked an exaggerated pout and imitated the president’s style of speaking. He talked about Trump’s controversial decision to announce a national emergency in his latest attempt to push through his plan for the border wall with Mexico.

“We need wall,” Baldwin/Trump harrumphed.

We have a tremendous amount of drugs coming in through the southern border, or the ‘brown line’ as many people have asked me not to call it.

You all see why I gotta fake this emergency, right? I have to because I want to. It’s really simple. We have a problem. Drugs are coming into this country through the wall. Wall works, wall makes safe.

You don’t have to be smart to understand that – in fact it’s even easier to understand if you’re not that smart.

Baldwin's portrayal hit the nail on the head for many, who loved it.

(And took the opportunity to drag the US president).

Trump’s decision to declare the border wall a national emergency hasn't gone down well with some of his colleagues. California attorney general Xavier Becerra told the president a lawsuit is imminent.

Baldwin addressed this, too. He said:

I’ll immediately be sued and the ruling will not go in my favour and then it will end up in the supreme court and then I’ll call my buddy Kavanaugh and I’ll say ‘It’s time to repay the Donny’ and he’ll say, ‘New phone, who dis?’ And by then the Mueller report will be released, crumbling my house of cards and I can plead insanity and do a few months in the puzzle factory and my personal hell of playing president will finally be over.
