Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, February 17, 2019

On Sunday morning [Trump] tweeted: 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!

There are a lot of answers to why SNL and NBC don't face "retribution," including, obviously, "the First Amendment."

Tweety Amin should see if he can persuade PM Abe into writing a letter about how unfunny SNL has become.

Retribution?

It's just a matter of time before some degenerate MAGAt responds to the bloated child rapist's call for violence.

IFf Trump wants revenge, he should just hire Alex Baldwin.... his chances of then going to jail are way up there.

I have a feel Trump hates SNL because he can't tell the difference between footage of himself and Alex Baldwin until his staff tells him.

Late-night TV "should be looked into?"

What does he propose, a Comedy Appropriateness Review Committee? No, nothing fascistic about this guy. Perfectly normal.

Comedy is never about fairness but funniness.

My theory is that his whole potus stunt is because they made fun of him at the WH correspondents dinner..

It explains a lot.

There is no better way to be cheered up in this day and age than listening to Colbert's opening act.

What do you oppose Ben? Fairness? You don't want fairness in our news reporting? Really? Who supported "fairness?" Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, even Nixon. It was finally ended by the guy who used "I forgot" as an excuse for breaking a law specifically forbidding him from selling arms to Iran.

When you elect a clown as a President, you end up with a circus for an administration.

I was forced to remove ------- from my screen name due to it's supposed offensive nature. Now it's used as a pejorative against me without moderation. Hilarious and sad.

Setting aside Obama, shows like SNL have been skewering politicians of all stripes ever since they've been around.

Trump is such a whiny POS.

We've got fairness. It's called the internet. This isn't 1949. We have more broadcasting capability than five radio stations and three television channels. There is plenty of bandwidth to go around for everyone, and television in general has less impact everyday. Start a channel on YouTube, report the news and build a following. That's exactly what conservatives do before you beg tech companies to demonetize and deplatform them...in the interest of fairness, of course.

Republicans are walking jokes, that's why.

#28 CTRL+F "Obama" brings up your #25. Where you complain about Obama not being embarrassing enough for SNL to skewer.

Dr Jones,

Over 8 years Obama did plenty of things that warranted skewering. Rarely did SNL bite. The only instance I can think of was when they did that hilarious bit "I'm Just a Bill" from Schoolhouse Rock over Obama circumventing congress (I think it was DACA).

Psychic prediction:

In 35 years Alex Baldwin's political and professional ambitions suffer because of his racist past after nearly 200 video clips of him in "orange face" resurface.

Just another case of Hamberder Helper being a thin skinned douche bag who can mock and insult but cries like a whiny little bitch when it happens to him.

OH PLEASE!

We should be so lucky.

Late Night is frickin hilarious now.

I won't be able to sleep from laughing so hard if Humpy tries to take on Stephen Colbert and his comedy writers.
