The incredibly thin-skinned Donald Trump is once again raging on Twitter against Saturday Night Live for daring to make fun of him. He’s even threatening legal action by the Federal Elections Commission or the Federal Communications Commission if they don’t stop taunting him.
‘It’s truly incredible that shows like Saturday Night Live, not funny/no talent, can spend all of their time knocking the same person (me), over & over, without so much of a mention of “the other side.” Like an advertisement without consequences. Same with Late Night Shows……” he wrote, before adding, “Should Federal Election Commission and/or FCC look into this? There must be Collusion with the Democrats and, of course, Russia! Such one sided media coverage, most of it Fake News. Hard to believe I won and am winning. Approval Rating 52%, 93% with Republicans. Sorry! #MAGA”
We have never had anyone so thin-skinned in public office. Even Richard Nixon could laugh at himself, as shown by his appearance on Laugh In. But not Trump. And he doesn’t seem to realize that the more he rages against this, the bigger a target he becomes. He’s just giving them ammunition for satire. He’s also too ignorant to know that there isn’t a chance in hell the courts would ever allow retaliation against a TV show for making fun of him. But he thinks he has the authority to do anything he wants. He thinks he’s the king ordering that the court jester be punished.
