Over the weekend, “Saturday Night Live (SNL)” showed a Christmas parody of “It’s a Wonderful Life.” During the spoof, Clarence the Angel shows President Donald Trump played by Alec Baldwin what the world would look like if he had not gotten elected.


“SNL’s” final show for the year wasn’t taken well by President Donald Trump. He took to Twitter on Sunday to berate the spoof and called for legal action against the show.

“SNL’s” sketch featured a number of guest stars. Ben Stiller was cast as Michael Cohen, Robert De Niro played Robert Mueller, and Matt Damon was Brett Kavanaugh.

The parody showed President Donald Trump, who was played by Alec Baldwin, being led through a Christmas party. However, in this world, Hillary Clinton was the president.

The sketch also suggested that the president and the first lady Melania got a divorce and remarried other people. Kavanaugh never made it onto the Supreme Court.


Mueller was also able to spend more time with his children instead of having to “investigate some idiot for treason.” Trump wasn’t pleased about the parody and he took to social media the following day to address it.

He suggested that “SNL” and NBC should be taken to court because they couldn’t be legal. The president also called it “the one sided coverage.”


His full tweet read:

“A REAL scandal is the one sided coverage, hour by hour, of networks like NBC & Democrat spin machines like Saturday Night Live. It is all nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials. Should be tested in courts, can’t be legal? Only defame & belittle! Collusion?”

Previously, Trump had commented on the “SNL” season premiere in which Kanye West wore a “Make America Great Again” hat and spoke at length. At the time, Trump had written on Twitter:


“Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) – no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told “no”), was great. He’s leading the charge!”

Towards the end of the parody, fake-Trump tells Clarence the Angel, played by Kenan Thompson: “Wow, so everyone is better off without me being president. In response, Clarence says: “Not just them, you’re better off too.”
