Donald Trump Swears He Didn’t Send The Justice Department After “Saturday Night Live”

June 23, 2021 / Posted by:

For five seasons, Alec Baldwin covered his face in the most uneven application of MAC NC45, stuck a dry piece of fiberglass insulation to his head, and squeezed his mouth into an FCC-approved butt hole to play former President Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live. He even won a Primetime Emmy award for it. Unsurprisingly, Donald Trump hated it┬ámore than he hates talking to any one of his kids not named Ivanka. Well, The Daily Beast recently published a piece on Donald’s hate of that SNL impression, and they claimed that Donald Trump’s feelings were so hurt, he called up his goon squad and asked what could be done about it. However, according to Donald Trump, he absolutely never did such a thing.

The Daily Beast spoke with two anonymous sources who claimed that in 2019, Trump asked some of his advisers and lawyers if government entities “could probe or mitigate SNL, Jimmy Kimmel, and other late-night comedy mischief-makers.” The Daily Beast can’t say whether he got the Department of Justice involved, only that SNL was on his radar, with the implication he was pushing for someone to put the lean on Lorne Michaels and anyone else who kept putting Alec Baldwin in front of the camera week after week. And, that wouldn’t really be that shocking, considering Trump’s minions have previously been dispatched to the homes of several high-profile haters. Like Eminem, who BuzzFeed claimed was investigated by the Secret Service over some anti-Trump lyrics from his song “The Ringer” (BuzzFeed found this out after filing an FOIA request with the Secret Service). Or John Mulaney, who said he was investigated by the Secret Service after making a joke about Donald Trump during an SNL monologue (Rolling Stone later confirmed this to be true).

It’s well within reason to picture Donald Trump trying so hard not to cry at 11:52 pm on a Saturday night, yelling at no one in particular to get on the phone and have SNL dumped on NBC’s cancellation trash heap along side The Celebrity Apprentice. But Trump swears he didn’t try to have SNL canceled. via Deadline:

“The story that I asked the Department of Justice to go after ratings challenged (without Trump) Saturday Night Live, and other late night losers, is total Fake News. It was fabricated, there were no sources, and yet the Lamestream Media goes with it.”

In the effort of fair and unbiased reporting, Donald Trump’s 2015 appearance as host in Season 41, ep.4, did get decent ratings. Even if his episode was unquestionably a huge pile of shit. But do I believe him? NO! You can’t tell me he didn’t have at least one meeting with the Department of Justice, asking how much it would cost to turn every network TV channel into one single propaganda network called Donaldvision, with 24-hour Donald-themed broadcasting. Yes, I know that’s technically Fox News. But Donald didn’t get to approve of all the programming that happened at Fox News. They also dedicated airtime to absolute ratings-tanking losers who acted like fools and made Donald Trump look like a joke. The only problem was, a Department of Justice investigation would have come back saying, “I’m sorry, Mr. President, but we regret to remind you that that’s your son and his girlfriend.”
