Continuing his recent media jihad on Twitter, President Donald Trump today attacked NBC and its comedy program Saturday Night Live as a “Democrat spin machine” in his morning online broadsides, and issued a call for a court test of the limits of free speech.
The tweet followed SNL‘s Christmas episode last night, which opened with It’s a Wonderful Trump, an It’s a Wonderful Life spoof imagining an America in which Trump was never president and where everyone is happier.
“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?”
