Trump Accuses ‘Saturday Night Live’ Of ‘Real Collusion!’ For Mocking His ‘Fake’ National Emergency





President Trump took to Twitter early Sunday to accuse NBC and “Saturday Night Live” of “real collusion” hours after the show mocked his national emergency declaration.

Trump asked how NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” could get away with “hit jobs” without “retribution.”

“Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC!” Trump tweeted. “Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution?



“Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion!”

The tweet from Trump came just hours after SNL took aim at his move to declare a national emergency to fund the construction of his long-promised border wall.

Actor Alec Baldwin, who has impersonated Trump since 2016, called the emergency “fake” and called out many of the justifications Trump used to support it.

“You all see why I gotta fake this emergency, right?” Baldwin asked during the sketch.

“We have a tremendous amount of drugs flowing into the country from the southern border — or the brown line, as many people have asked me not to call it,” Baldwin said as Trump. “That’s why we need wall. Because wall works. Wall makes safe.”




“I have to [sign the emergency declaration] because I want to. It’s really simple. We have a problem,” Baldwin added, before saying that he’s “basically taking military money so I can has wall.”

Trump later added, “THE RIGGED AND CORRUPT MEDIA IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!”

While speaking to the press in the White House Rose Garden on Friday, Trump admitted he didn’t actually need to declare a national emergency on the southern border to secure funding for his long-promised border wall, suggesting he’s only doing so because it’s the “faster” option.

“The primary fight was on the wall,” the president began. “Everything else we have so much as I’ve said, I don’t know what to do with it, we have so much money. But, on the wall, they skimped.”
