File under "You Can't Make This Stuff Up!"
Donald Trump wants the courts to determine if it is legal for 'Saturday Night Live' to 'belittle' him
Instead of governing the country, this man-child watches comedy shows and seethes when he sees comedians parody him.
In the past, normal presidents either chuckled at the parodies or ignored them. Every president since Saturday Night Live came to television has been parodied, from Chevy Chase's Gerald Ford, to Jimmah Carter, to Ronnie Raygun, to George H.W. Bush, to Slick Willie (Big Dog), to Dubya, to Barack "Big Ears" Obama. Every one of our presidents.
Trump, however, is the first president I remember who has no sense of humor and who whines, pouts, and has hissy fits whenever SNL (or anyone) does a comedy routine about him, his administration, or his family. He's humorless and clueless and shows himself to be a thin-skinned WATB each time he bitches about comedians acting like comedians.
His anti-American instincts to want to shut down or shut up anyone who mocks him is EXACTLY what dictators all through history have done to people who satirize or criticize leaders for a living.
Trump and his cultists would love to see the government destroy anyone who dares to portray him as he is: A loud-mouth, ignorant, corrupt bully.
Happily, this is America. He can't do that. All Trump can do is stamp his feet and bray like the weak little jackass that he is.
