Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, December 16, 2018

Sounds like President Donald Trump didn't enjoy this weekend's episode of NBC's "Saturday Night Live." The president on Sunday blasted NBC and its iconic sketch comedy show as "spin machines." He questioned the legality of what he called "unfair news coverage" on certain TV networks ― a baseless claim that appeared to fly in the face of First Amendment protections.

Trump is funny AF if he thinks political humor is going to be banned by a US Court.

You go ahead right on and bring that carp to court, dumbass. We could all use more laughter at your expense.

Some of the show's political takes in the Trump era have been great, e.g., Melissa McCarthy's "Spicey not so nicey!", though I find a lot of it to be hacky kitschy grift.

SNL is like YouTube. If you don't like it, click another channel.

The only judge sympathetic to such a claim is Brett "Beer Ball" Kavanaugh, who has those pesky other SCOTUS judges sneering at him...

Wanna be alpha male Trump should just go ahead and try to sue SNL over this.
I'd love to see how that would work out.

I'd love to see Lorne Michaels write up an offer to facilitate this a la the contract to get the Beatles back together.

While the media definitely needs to be reigned in, the comedy outlets should never be touched. I know it sucks that Liberal fake news is actually watched by Liberals who actually believe it, but at least the hosts are the first to say that their shows are fake and are for comedic purposes only. How the viewer takes it is what our country is all about. I love SNL, girlfriend and I watch it every week. There isn't one political satire show I don't watch because of their leanings. If something is funny, it's funny. Since Dems have a hard time with this and try to silence comedians across the country who "offend" people, it's only natural that eventually Reps would start doing the same thing to Liberal comedy. But I think the reason why there are so many more Liberal satire shows in mainstream media is because they make fun of Reps, who generally are so stupid it's funny. Whereas Dems are generally so stupid, it just makes you want to cry so Conservative satire shows just can't keep viewers...even fellow conservatives. I mean, who wants to watch a show that just makes you want to cry and be depressed? SNL has great source material because Reps literally are brain dead when it comes to the common people.

Ahhhh the Orange Fuhrer's felinge are hurt, poor baby!
What a snowflake!

As for Humtake, as soon as you udder the words "fake news", you lose any credibility and lose the argument/debate/discussion.
So take that and shove it up your treasonous Russian loving ---!

There are no successful conservative comedy shows because conservatism, by its very nature. is nasty and mean spirited. While mean spirited can be funny, conservatism combines with low intellect to be incapable of developing humor.

The problem isn't the media.

The problem is people like you who have allergies to facts.

Worse, you are gullible enough to believe anything Fox or Trump trots out and then to spew it on here. It generally takes 5 seconds to fact check the stupidity you vomit on these pages and prove you fell for another ridiculous, false talking point. And frankly, we're tired of correcting you.

You're useless. Go away.

"While the media definitely needs to be reigned in"

What in the hell does that even mean? The freedom of the Press is protected by the Constitution.

If we are going to change the Constitution we would do better to reign in easy access to guns. (also "protected" by the Constitution)
