Trump slams SNL again: "Totally biased," “unwatchable"

President-elect Donald Trump unleashed another tweet of rage targeting “Saturday Night Live” -- slamming the show as “unwatchable” and “totally biased.”

“Just tried watching Satruday Night Live - unwatchable!” he tweeted just after midnight on Sunday. “Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse.”

“Sad,” he added.

The jab comes two weeks after Mr. Trump sent out another tweet trashing NBC’s comedy show. He declared on Nov. 20 that it’s a “totally one-sided, biased show - nothing funny at all” -- continuing an attack that dates back to the presidential campaign season.

In October, he called an episode poking fun at the second debate between Mr. Trump and Hillary Clinton a “hit job.”

“Media rigging election!” he tweeted. 

Sunday’s new post was sandwiched between a tweet about Vice President-elect Mike Pence campaigning in Louisiana for John Kennedy for U.S. Senate, and a flurry of posts warning American companies planning to move their operations overseas about increased taxes.

He posted it after a sketch on Saturday night made fun of Trump’s persistent use of Twitter. The clip featured Alec Baldwin, playing Mr. Trump, obsessively retweeting other users.

“There is a reason actually that Donald tweets so much,” said Kate McKinnon, playing Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway in the sketch. “He does it to distract the media from his business conflicts and all the very scary people in his Cabinet.”

Baldwin and McKinnon have both been celebrated for their impressions on the comedy show, which has a history of poking fun at everyone, including politicians, through impersonations.

The show also spoofed Melania Trump in an October sketch that imagined Mr. Trump’s closest female supporters leaving his side.
