Is Trump right in slamming SNL??

I think he is.  But I think he should have checked on the legalities before EVER EVER Tweeting about it like he did.  But, he doesn’t, as always.  And, as always, he’s given the Left even more fodder for their ‘comedy’ with his Tweet…they’re having a ball with it…Even FOX is giggling about his threat to sue SNL:

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

A REAL scandal is the one sided coverage, hour by hour, of networks like NBC & Democrat spin machines like Saturday Night Live. 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?

I believe ANY thinking American understands that the media and comedy shows are always going to skewer a sitting president…ours or any other country’s.    If it’s funny, it’s given comedy time with jokes, skits, etc.   Putin’s been included,  Merkel has, etc.  BUT….BUT……….

WE KNOW THAT THE CONSTANT LATE NIGHT COMEDY MAKES A DIFFERENCE.  UPROARIOUS LAUGHTER SLAMMING TRUMP ISN’T GOOD FOR TRUMP.

BUT, TO ME, THIS IS ALL LIKE ONE BIG PRO DEMOCRAT COMMERCIAL………A FREE ONE.  CONSTANT FREE ADVERTISING.   Republicans don’t get free advertising.

WHERE IS THE LINE DRAWN BETWEEN HONEST, FAIR POLITICAL COMEDY AND CROSSING THE LINE INTO “WORKING HARD FOR ONE PARTY IN ORDER TO GET A PRESIDENT OUT OF OFFICE?”   

Do you think Trump totally understands he cannot sue but writes these outlandish Tweets to start conversations, get people thinking?   Do you think they think? 🙂

THOUGHTS?

    We enjoy freedom of speech, they enjoy freedom of speech, except that not all speech is protected. In this case, it is. Trump is being childish.

    He makes statement just to dominate the news but he is thin skinned. BHO was very thin skinned but I think DJT has him beat.
    We have two more years to listen to his drivel then Nikki Haley will be the first female president.

    Realizing that before its over the man- he- Trump will have every friend, associate, business deal investigated, friends bankrupted. The man can tweet anything he wants. Before its over, and he knows it, his life will totally be destroyed. What universe am I on? The NY AG to be, says she will put Trump in jail, Maryland AG will investigate everything and everyone, the Southern Feds DA out to get him. What more do we want from him?
    All he ever wanted to do was to MAGA. In two years he did more for us than those in decades. Give the man a break. Get off his back. If I were him, I would hang it up and tell the Universe where to go.

    Flynn saying he wasn’t entrapped by FBI. Thinks all was ‘by the book,’ though many experts disagree. #($R@#(*$&@#*(

    Tweeting is the only off-the-record outlet for DJT and its free. He also enjoys a huge audience, so he should continue using it ’cause it aggravates the bajeez out of the left, and he know it.
    Tweet on, my friend!

    Certainly not illegal, but back in the day, when SNL was funny,(pre-1980 or so) they would troll the president but not every show. The late night hosts would do it too but not constantly. Once people have heard a joke 100 times don’t they get tired of it? And a lot of it isn’t joking. I don’t recall Carson, or Leno or even the worthless fuzzy headed guy hammering on the president unless there was a joke in it.

    These are all people who have little interest in wage growth and tax cuts. I don’t see where the middle class appreciates any of it, so I have to conclude there are way too many dependent losers out there who watch this and vote dem.

    We need major loser reduction.

    Kid, I REALLY want to believe you, and I’ve even said this here before…I do think the real America is sick and tired of the nastiness….but so much hits the mark that it may work otherwise. Trump is a great guy who loves this country, but saying things like “Californians are marching against sanctuary citeis” or quoting definitely wrong stats, just sinks him in the eyes of the public..

    I’m with MAL and you…I think Tweeting is all he’s really got to get the truth out there, but then he has to stick to it….he can’t threaten to sue when it’s not legal to, he can’t get statistics wrong….otherwise, it’s a VERY strong thing to do and I TOTALLY applaud him.

    I’d even throw some in sticking up for his wife….why not? Kindly, not blustering, like…

    “You know, America, Mrs. Trump is a First Lady who’s doing a lot of good for this country…like against bullying, for all children, for.. for… for……….(whatever), and I think we owe her the kind of debt of gratitude other First Ladies received. I’m not sure that’s asking too much.”

    I might even throw in something true and funny that would tick Michelle Obama off BIG time…”…and you can bet there’s no broccoli in school trash cans, either!”

    WHY NOT. DO IT, DONALD…………..tell the truth, be definitive, kind, forceful, and say your peace!!

    Mal has the best idea with the Fireside Chat thing. There are a myriad of things that need to be talked about that are never going to carry any weight in a tweet. But if he doesn’t say a lot of these things no one else will.

    I would like to see him do one on “Socialists are on the rise in America”. DJT could bring images and news about the yellow vest riots across Europe. Folks, this is what socialism and mass migration get you – we don’t want that here. As one example.

    As Mustang always says, people get what they vote for. Little we can do but deploy our one vote and sometimes more often with our wallets.

    Chuck (ACCUCHUCK), I’ve been saying this for months….He actually needs to do this every month, or even every week, on various subjects, instead of the blustering name-calling tweets,e tc., that he’s been doing. Stay angry, be tough, be honest, be revealing, tell the truth, explain WHAT….WHY….etc.

    Yes, the media will chew him up over the slightest little thing that wasn’t 100% correct or whatever, but it WOULD WORK. I honestly think people would start to look forward to it.

    I called it a new FIRESIDE CHAT…he MUST.

    Kid, couldn’t agree with you or Mal more……….talk, talk, talk…no name calling, all stats correct. DO IT. I LOVE your idea of showing pictures, explaining, etc. And I’d have no problem if he used other experts from time to time in these chats, too.

    Yes, bring in experts to present information in bite size chunks. The people he needs to reach are the ones whose eyes glaze over if presented more than a couple soundbites.

    SNL has hit a new low. They are acting like they truly are demon possessed. I would just let them stew in their own sin’s, pray for them, and walk away. Just my two cents.

    But SPARKY: Come to think of it…it’s sins against our country….it’s not acknowledging our history, it’s not acknowledging our goodness, it’s not acknowledging a future based on the morals and values of our founding fathers, it’s ignoring its citizens so illegals can hurt us, it’s teaching our children to hate (There’s a kid whose last name is TRUMP who had to homeschool for a year because children were so nasty…no relation) our presidents and have zero respect , etc etc.
    We could all go ON and ON and ON………….truly sins against America.
    I mistakenly typed SINGS against America….probably that, too. Remember the elementary school children whose teachers were teaching them songs about how wonderful Obama was? It was like Hitler Youth but the media didn’t mind!! @($#&@(#*$&@#(&@#$(*&@#

  16. It’s like when people try to irritate you to get a rise out of you. SNL is the little kid that pokes at you to get a reaction. That’s protected speech, yes, but their comedy is low rent. It used to be creative now it’s juvenile and vacant of laughter. Trump needs to ignore them. I haven’t watched it in years.
