Donald Trump Responds To 'SNL' Bit Fantasizing He Was Never Elected: "Can't Be Legal?"

President Donald Trump responded to a Saturday Night Live (SNL) skit, which outlined what life could have been had he not been elected, on his Twitter Sunday morning. Trump did not directly address the skit, which featured Alec Baldwin as the SNL version of the President.

His tweet seemed to imply the mockery of liberal joke shows, and the channel's coverage of the President in general, could be legally classified as defamation. "A REAL scandal is the one sided coverage, hour by hour, of networks like NBC & Democrat spin machines like Saturday Night Live," Trump tweeted. "It is all nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials. Should be tested in courts, can't be legal? Only defame & belittle! Collusion?"

The Saturday skit show is no stranger to jokes about the president. Baldwin often reprises his role as Trump and mocks a variety of administration decisions, as well as Trump's infamous internet presence.

The skit featured Baldwin's Trump as a George Bailey-like figure in a version of It's A Wonderful Life. The SNL feature was titled "It's A Wonderful Trump."

The black and white sketch began with "Trump" claiming sometimes he wished he wasn't president. Keenan Thompson, who played angel Clarence, brought him into a world where he hadn't been elected. His White House team was also featured, from Mike Pence to Kellyanne Conway.

"Wow, everyone looks so different. What are those things on their faces," Baldwin's Trump asked. "Those are smiles," Thompson responded.

Conway's interaction with Trump took a jab at the administration. She was played by Kate McKinnon. "After we lost the election the devil did give me my soul back," she said. "Excuse me, I have to go find my husband who I do speak to now."

In the skit, Clarence reveals Hillary Clinton is president. "That's right," he said. "In this reality, all she had to do to win was visit Wisconsin once."

Melania Trump, played by Cecily Strong, was also subject to the jokes. She said hello to Trump at the Christmas party he attended, but had an unfamiliar, American accent. Baldwin asked what happened to her usual tone.

"Oh, I lost it after we got divorced," she explained. "They said being around you all the time was hurting my language skills."

This isn't the first time Trump has responded to the sketch show. He addressed Baldwin's version of himself in 2016. "Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me," he tweeted on October 16, 2016 according to Vanity Fair. "Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!"
