OPINION: Why Donald Trump Attacks Saturday Night Live

Last updated on February 24, 2019

Saturday Night Live. The 44 year-old television program that has recently become what is arguably the most liberally skewed comedy show in the world… and it’s hilarious because of it!

I say that for mostly two reasons; the accuracy of the actor’s impersonations and the way the writers nail almost every subtlety the President brings to his speaking events.

While Trump has been highly critical of SNL in the past, his most recent tweet against the program came Sunday Morning. In the tweet, he not only criticized the nationally syndicated TV show, but also the network behind it.

Recently, it has been made clear that SNL is trying to balance their politics. They had a skit on the same episode within the infamous Weekend Update in which two actors – Alex Moffat and Kate McKinnon – played Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. They made plenty of jokes about them too…

But not as many as Trump.

In conclusion, Trump hates Saturday Night Live because they are right. SNL is accurate and for the most part, they’ve been pretty accurate.
