Trump calls for 'retribution' after SNL lampoons his emergency declaration

Trump calls for 'retribution' after SNL lampoons his emergency declaration

"Nothing amusing about exhausted Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC!" he tweeted. Very unfair and should be looked into, " Trump tweeted. "This is the real Collusion!", the president wrote on Twitter.

For Saturday Night Live's latest cold open, Alec Baldwin put on his Donald Trump mask and spent seven minutes recreating IRL Trump's sham press conference in which he unconvincingly presented his case for a fake national emergency.

"President Trump declared a national emergency yesterday and argued that we need a wall to stop the flow of drugs into our country", Colin Jost reported.

Baldwin replied on Twitter saying "Trump whines". "Wall works, wall makes safe".

President Trump declared a national emergency last Friday to collect almost eight billion dollars for his proposed border wall. The shutdown alone cost the USA economy billions of dollars and hamstrung USA national security by allowing serious threats to go unanswered for weeks, while hundreds of thousands of federal workers were furloughed or unable to fully perform their roles.

While dodging reporters" questions, Baldwin confesses that he's winging the presidency, his national emergency is completely fake, and he can't wait for his "personal hell of playing president' to come to an end.

He also posted a select few clips from his actual speech, but avoided re-sharing the part where he said "I didn't need to do this". In October, Trump tweeted his support for Kanye West, who appeared on the show wearing a Make America Great Again hat. "I observed the defendant push me and then strike me across the left side of my face with his closed right hand, resulting in pain to my face", the alleged victim said, according to court papers.

Trump's favoritism of dictators and censorship is nothing new, but it remains alarming and anti-democratic. "Had I known then what I know now, I would have told Putin to just give the job to Hillary instead". He poked fun at Trump's tiff with CNN's Jim Acosta, played by Kyle Mooney, who said statistics show that undocumented immigrants commit less crime than native-born Americans.
