Offended with the mockeries, President Trump took to his Twitter on Sunday to share his displeasure, writing: "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.' He continued "Like an advertisement without consequences. Same with Late Night Shows."

Trump, who quoted Fox & Friends' video last week on the platform to support his hate battle with the host added "Should Federal Election Commission and/or FCC look into this?" insisting that "There must be Collusion with the Democrats and, of course, Russia!"

His tweet continued reading:

"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."

As per FiveThirtyEight website', Trump's current presidential job approval rate from March 1-10, 2019 comes at a percent of 39 whilst the disapproval percent stands at 57%.

Last year, instead of airing a new episode, SNL rather repeated an old ep titled "It’s a Wonderful Trump" which at least featured one sketch of the president with Alec Baldwin impersonating Trump.

Immediately after the episode aired on 15th December, President Trump went through the roof and tweeted. In his words, the tweet read:

"A REAL scandal is the one sided coverage, hour by hour, of networks like NBC & Democrat spin machines like Saturday Night LiveIt is nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials. Should be tested in courts, can’t be legal?"

However, Trump is not the first president, SNL, a caricature show that has made fun of. The show previously mocked almost every president since Gerald Ford in 1976 as well as other numerous figures in politics.
