LOS ANGELES (AP) — President Donald Trump is criticizing “Saturday Night Live” on Twitter again the morning after a Christmas-themed spoof on the sketch-comedy show focused on him.

Trump on Sunday called “SNL” and NBC “democratic spin machines.”


On Saturday night, “SNL” opened with an “It’s a Wonderful Life” themed sketch that imagined a White House without Trump. Alec Baldwin returned to play the president once again.

Trump has often been critical of “SNL” and Baldwin’s portrayal of him, and has taken to Twitter in the past to express his frustrations, even getting into spats with Baldwin.


In his tweet Sunday, Trump wrote that coverage on networks like NBC is one-sided and suggested that it should be tested in courts. CC
