Trump Threatens SNL With Federal Investigation for Mocking Him

Trump Threatens SNL With Federal Investigation for Mocking Him:  In his newest Sunday tweetstorm, President Donald Trump threatened “Saturday Night Live” as well as other late-night comedy shows with a federal investigation for poking fun at him, calling them completely one-sided and claiming he enjoys a 52% approval rating.

Wait a minute, am I missing something here?  Since when has Donald Trump had a 52% approval rating?  Why he must be referring to some poll that HE took among his own family - or perhaps he’s talking about his popularity in Moscow or Saudi Arabia.  

Of course, it’s important to realize that Trump’s tweets are little more than coded messages - intended as scraps of red meat for the knuckle-dragging fanatics in his base, and not really intended for consumption by the rest of the country - but even so, it’s a bit unsettling when a President of the United States starts threatening comedians.

Of course, in all fairness to President Trump, we need to remember that when Dan Aykroyd impersonated Nixon, Chevy Chase did Gerald Ford, Dana Carvey did George HW Bush, Norm MacDonald satirized Bob Dole, Phil Hartman mocked-out both Reagan and Clinton, Will Ferrell did George W and then Jay Pharoah joked about Obama - they also threatened SNL with federal investigations.  Remember that?  Well, nobody else does either.

I mean, what the hell’s next?  Trump declares yet another national emergency and orders security forces to investigate comedians who’s jokes have injured his pride?  And if that sounds far-fetched, remember this is a guy who believes what he hears on Fox News, so it’s hardly surprising he views SNL’s Weekend Update as an actual newscast!  Still, it’s quite troubling knowing the guy who’s in charge of the world’s most powerful country can’t quite grasp the difference between a news story and satire.

I'm sure the court's wouldn't mind entertaining a Trump lawsuit against SNL...On the grounds that they could use a good joke and a bit of comic relief...

Curious how many 1st time voters will be organized and motivated. If not, why not.

We may very well be confronted with a Rubio Ryan ticket.

Johnny, please watch for my essay: Electoral Math

And yeah, sure, Vladimir Putin's initials may have exasperated his egomaniacical er, issues.

No doubt we're on thin ice but have no idea how deep the silt. [today's word: precipice]

10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,...weeeeve lift off!

And I'll just cap it off with this comment from his Twitler thread (or maybe it was Fark): "It was a rerun, you idiot."
