Very busy president-elect still going after SNL days later
…Trump on Wednesday doubled down on his scorn for popular TV sketch show “Saturday Night Live,” and especially Alec Baldwin’s portrayal of him, saying “the skits are terrible.
…In an interview on NBC’s “Today” show on Wednesday, Trump was asked whether he had considered no longer watching it, given his complaints.
“I hosted ‘SNL’ when it was a good show, but it’s not a good show anymore,” Trump responded. “First of all, nothing to do with me, there’s nothing funny about it. The skits are terrible.”.
The Republican businessman said Baldwin’s depiction of him was “really mean-spirited and not very good.”
…“Saturday Night Live” has seen a rise in audiences since Baldwin joined the show in October to impersonate Trump.
But Trump countered on Wednesday, “Frankly, the way the show is going now, if you look at the kind of work they’re doing, who knows how long that show’s going to be on. It’s a terrible show.”
