Trump Demands Court Intervention After Being Bashed by SNL for the Millionth Time

It’s becoming painfully obvious that the president doesn’t actually know how the courts work.

Last night, during its cold open, Saturday Night Live imagined the impossible wonder of a Trump loss in the 2016 presidential election. Donald Jr. continued his education, Mike Pence became a DJ, Sarah Huckabee Sanders established herself as a PR guru, Milania lost her accent, divorced her husband, and erected a rival real estate company.

And while it was certainly one of the best sketches from an episode that saved a weak season, the president himself was not all that pleased with the messaging. Somehow, he’d missed the last two seasons of unrelenting burns. And this morning, Trump devoted one of his first tweets of the day to pleading for court intervention through non-sequiturs and terrible grammar, dubbing the late-night program “a Democratic spin machine” and demanding that they “should be tested in courts.” The rest of the tweet (see it below) is so barely comprehensible that you can only really work with implied meaning.

Watch the Saturday Night Live opener that made the president demand the strong arm of the law below.
