Alec Baldwin’s Latest ‘SNL’ Sketch Has Trump in Another Twitter Rant
Sunday, 17 February 2019 Another weekend, another angry tweet from Donald Trump over “Saturday Night Live.”
After Alec Baldwin returned to the NBC show to lampoon Trump’s national emergency declaration to build a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border, the president fired out two tweets Sunday morning, accusing NBC of “collusion” and attacking the media as a whole.
“Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC!” read the tweet. “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!”

He then added in a second all-caps tweet, “THE RIGGED AND CORRUPT MEDIA IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!”
As usual, the tweets were met with derision with the most vocal anti-Trump figures on Twitter, like The Dem Coalition’s Scott Dworkin, who tweeted that “when Trump called for ‘SNL’ to be investigated for collusion today, it reminded me that he has no idea what the word collusion means.”
“I would give anything to be a fly on the wall when you’re watching ‘SNL’ and screaming at the TV,” wrote political blogger Andy Ostroy.
And actress Alyssa Milano wrote, “For the love of God, someone give this guy an audio recording of the constitution.”

The cold open sketch on “SNL” started with Baldwin’s Trump lying about his height and weight.
“I’m here to declare a very urgent, important national emergency,” he said. “This is a big one, so I don’t want to waste any time. I just had a great health exam. I’m still standing 6 foot 7, 185 pounds. Shredded.”
When a reporter played by Kyle Mooney noted that statistics have found that undocumented immigrants have a lower crime rate than American citizens, Baldwin’s Trump responded, “Those numbers are faker than this emergency.”
“Wall works. Wall makes safe,” he also said. “Abuelas and bebes unless you give me wall.”
