Trump slams ‘Saturday Night Live’ as ‘unwatchable’


President-elect Donald Trump early Sunday blasted the latest episode of “Saturday Night Live,” saying the show is “unwatchable.”

“Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse. Sad,” he tweeted.

{mosads}In Saturday’s show, Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, retweeted a high school student in the middle of a security briefing to open the latest show.

“I just retweeted the best tweet,” he tells Kate McKinnon’s Kellyanne Conway.

“I mean, wow, what a great, smart tweet,” he adds. “This could not wait. It was from a young man named Seth. He’s 16. He’s in high school. And I really did retweet — seriously. This is real.”

When a briefer suggests turning the discussion to Syria, Trump says, “Seth seems so cool. His Twitter bio says he wants to make America great again. It also says he loves the Anaheim Ducks.”

Conway then weighs in, saying Trump uses Twitter to “distract the media from his business conflicts and all the very scary people in his Cabinet.”

“Actually, I do it because my brain is bad,” Baldwin responds.

Baldwin on Twitter offered to stop doing the impression of Trump if the president-elect released his tax returns.

Trump in October pointed to the show as an example of the media rigging the election against him. 

He called a presidential debate skit a “hit job” and said the show was “boring and unfunny.”
