President Donald Trump threatened to drag “Saturday Night Live” into court because the comedy variety series aired an opening on Dec. 15 that was a parody of “It’s a Wonderful Life,” which portrayed a happier future had Trump never been president.
Trump threatened possible legal action in a tweet on Dec. 16:
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?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 16, 2018
