Watch the SNL press conference sketch that pissed off Donald Trump

January 16th, 2017 at 4:20 PM
SNL Donald Trump Press Conference

In the final episode before President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony, Saturday Night Live packed as many shots as it could at Trump in a sketch lampooning the incoming president’s recent press conference. Unsurprisingly, Trump wasn’t a big fan of the sketch, and lashed out on Twitter once again.

Before we get to the reaction, it’s worth watching the sketch itself, which focused on healthcare, the star-studded inauguration and the bizarre reports that came out in the days before the press conference:

The fact that Trump gave SNL the opportunity to bring Kenan Thompson’s Steve Harvey impression into the mix without even having to come up with some contrived reason for him being there was astounding. If nothing else, Trump is making the lives of the SNL writers easier than its been in years.

But rather than ignore the show altogether, or perhaps even take credit for the show’s ratings bounce through 2016, Trump decided to once again bash the show on Twitter, calling it the worst of the network:

One of these days, Trump is going to realize that his tweets are just a signal boost the “really bad television” and… oh, who am I kidding. He’s going to continue to tweet about SNL throughout his presidency.

We should also expect to see his press secretary, Sean Spicer, stick up for his boss during Trump’s reign, as he did this weekend when he appeared on Fox News program MediaBuzz to say that SNL “used to be funny and entertaining and light-hearted,” but is now “just bad.”

Urine trouble now, NBC! No one’s going to stream Saturday Night Live after this.
