Saturday Night Live used to be a comedy show, but in the age of Trump it has become nothing more than a political organization designed to help Democrats and campaign against Trump.
They ridicule Trump, week after week and the actor who plays Trump is Baldwin who can dish it out but apparently can’t take it when Trump pushes back.
FOX News reports:
Alec Baldwin wonders if President Trump’s tweet could be a threat to him and his family
After President Trump sent a tweet criticizing Alec Baldwin’s most recent impersonation of him on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” the star has responded by questioning whether the president is directly threatening he and his family’s personal safety.
Trump sent a tweet directly calling out “SNL” for being biased against his administration and Republicans in general.
“Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC! 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” he tweeted Sunday.
Baldwin, a frequent Trump critic, took to Twitter shortly afterward to respond to the president’s tweet and wonder as to whether or not his comments counted as a threat against him and his family.
Here’s Trump’s tweet:

Here’s Baldwin’s tweet:
I wonder if a sitting President exhorting his followers that my role in a TV comedy qualifies me as an enemy of the people constitutes a threat to my safety and that of my family?

That’s ridiculous, especially when Alec Baldwin was recently charged with assaulting a stranger over a parking spot. Who is the real menace here? Baldwin is even headed to anger management.
Entertainment Weekly reports:
Alec Baldwin will have to go to anger management
Alec Baldwin pleaded guilty Wednesday to a charge stemming from an alleged altercation over a New York City parking spot.
The SNL and Mission: Impossible – Fallout actor admitted to a second-degree violation of harassment.
Other, more serious charges related to the dispute — such as attempted assault — were dropped.
He agreed to take part in a short-term anger management program and pay $120.
Baldwin reportedly admitted to pushing a man he says took his parking spot on Nov. 2. But his lawyers have said surveillance video evidence would disprove the man’s claim that Baldwin had also punched him. The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office reviewed the video and spoke with witnesses and agreed to the lesser charge, according to New York’s ABC 7.
How ironic is that?
