Donald Trump tweets about SNL’s skit about how he tweets too much


I actually had some concerns that Alec Baldwin would never appear on Saturday Night Live following the election. In the immediate wake of the election, sources did say that he wasn’t interested in continuing his Donald Trump impression, and that Lorne Michaels was probably going to have to scramble to find someone else. But Baldwin came back. And he keeps coming back. I suspect that Baldwin’s motives are something of a high-level trolling. He saw that his impression of Trump pissed off the real Trump, so Baldwin is going to keep doing it as long as it keeps pissing off Trump. Here was last night’s Trump skit, which would be funny if it wasn’t so bloody terrifying.

The mature answer from Donald Trump should have been to laugh at himself, or treat it all in good humor. The mature answer would have been to simply own it. I mean, after all, Donald Trump is the president-elect (*SCREAMS INTERNALLY*). But no. The PEOTUS is just as thin-skinned as ever.

As SNL’s skit showed, what’s terrifying is NOT that this is all some kind of media-driven feint to get people to talk about stupid stuff rather than the “important stuff.” Trump does this because his brain is bad. Truly. Because he really is this petty, broken, needy and thin-skinned. SAD!

    I have to stop reading about this. It’s nearly Christmas and it just makes me too sad at a time of year I want to believe in hope and happiness.

    I’ll be ready to face it in January 😩

    • Melly says:

      I know what you mean! I want to shop for Christmas presents and listen to happy Christmas music without thinking about our inevitable doom.

      • Megan says:

        Yesterday I visited the National Museum of African American History. The museum looks at the unvarnished truth of slavery, segration, and continuing racism in America, but it also tells the unromanticized story of just how hard people fought slavery, segregation, and racism. I felt hopeful for the first time in weeks. The historical exhibit ends with the election of Barack Obama, but it’s clear the journey continues. Americans have come together to fight evil in the past, and we will do so in the future.

    • Swak says:

      I started binging Christmas movies right after the election.

    • Snowflake says:

      My dad passed away on de. 29, 14 years ago. My birthday is January 19, my cat got hit by a car last year, 3 days before my bday. And trump gets put into office the day after my birthday! Does that suck or what?

      • SusanneToo says:

        My father suddenly passed away during BO’s first inauguration after spending the morning calling all of us children and grandchildren reminding everyone to watch the historic occasion(like I needed reminding). Always a sad day for me.

      • sealit says:

        My birthday is January 20. I’ve already told my dad that from 2017 on, I will celebrate my birthday on January 19. I hope you don’t mind sharing your birthday.

      • Snowflake says:

        Awww, Suzanne. sealit, you are welcome to share my birthday! 🙂

    • Lorelai says:

      This is unrelated to SNL but is too good not to post and hopefully will cheer you up at least a little!

      It’s like, well, Bob, maybe you should have thought of this A MONTH AGO! Dumbasses. 🙄

  2. Tate says:

    I am just going to ask one more time for clarity….. WTF America?!?! 😩😩

    • nina says:

      Some newspapers need to put this line “WTF America” on the front page on inauguration day.

      • Alix says:

        I second this motion! (In fact, I’m surprised The Onion hasn’t already done it.)

      • Kori says:

        I could see the Daily News. They’ve gone hard all election

      • Emma33 says:

        An Australian newspaper had ‘WTF?’ on its front page the day after the election. (But said it stood for ‘will trump fail?). Very droll.

    • YT says:

      We’ve been so busy for years telling each other how great and wonderful we are to pay attention to the concerns of the rest of the world. It’s a rich-nation privilege. Never mind that half of us are idiots who think Trump is great and cannot recognize that Trump is darkness and evil personified.

      • KB says:

        On the plus side, all of the racist pieces of garbage that voted for him will be hammered by his policies for the next four years. So there’s that.

      • robyn says:

        The American people lost in this election and Putin came out the big winner!!! God bless Russia … may it grow and prosper.

      • Lorelai says:

        @YT that is so exactly it.

        And I’ve noticed (obviously this is just anecdotal) that the people who feel the strongest about American exceptionalism are those who’ve never traveled abroad. And have no interest in ever doing so. It’s scary that so many people are so insular.

    • KB says:

      As an American, this is so humiliating. I just keep telling myself “Hillary got 2.5 million more votes, Hillary got 2.5 million more votes…” as I rock back and forth on the floor.

    • EM says:

      Apparently people thought they were voting for Prick of the US (POTUS).

    • Deering24 says:

      Tate–it’s the last desperate backlash of white supremacy. Think of it like a dinosaur trapped in a tar pit. He’s snapping and vicious, but he’s doomed no matter what. 😉

    • Melly says:

      But, according to Trump, the President can’t have a conflict of interest. So that’s settled.

    • Nicole says:

      I mean he legit just maybe started an international conflict with china because he called Taiwan because he wants to expand there. So yea his business conflict might get us all killed.

      • Tate says:

        This douche bag hasn’t even taken office yet and he is causing major damage. I have never felt this afraid in my life. Not even being dramatic…. I AM SCARED.

      • Janetdr says:

        Me too, Tate.

      • hnmmom says:

        I am terrified as well. Absolutely terrified.

      • Belle Epoch says:

        The China tweets are TERRIFYING. Seriously. They are a gigantic global power with nukes. Trump just destroyed 30 years of hyper sensitive negotiations USING TWITTER!!! No diplomacy. Knows nothing about China. No advice. Just being a thin-skinned Grade A bully causing a nuclear war. We voted for that!

    • lightpurple says:

      And, of course, he tweeted about not understanding why he couldn’t take Taiwan’s call. For God’s sake, read a security briefing!

      • Ankhel says:

        Do you think he knows his thoughts exist, even if he doesn’t tweet them?

      • KB says:

        My favorite is him saying “THEY CALLED ME!” after his people approached Taiwan’s President and arranged it. In his broken brain, he wasn’t the one to dial and wait for them to pick up, so he’s not responsible for it.

      • lightpurple says:

        @KB, and we’re supposed to believe nobody screens his calls? That you can just dial a number and Donald Trump will pick up?

      • Scal says:

        And his followers don’t care either. The main reaction I’ve seen is “good! He’s being tough! Who cares if he pisses off China?”

        If they even know about it as the right wing media (brietbart, fox et all) has barely mentioned it.

      • Kitten says:

        We are truly a nation of idiots.

      • Lacia Can says:

        I don’t get this “tough” stance with China anyway. Doesn’t China own a good chunk of US debt? What happens if China demands payment? Their gov’t is already super pissed.

      • SusanneToo says:

        @Lacia. Doesn’t China(among others)own a large part of trump himself?

      • smd says:

        Lightpurple, I really think SNL nailed it. He’s too busy tweeting, figuring out who’s on his ish list, how to make himself “appear” smart and capable without truly getting anything done. The security briefings are not happening and one of his off the cuff calls, tweets, visits, remarks or gifts is going to cause an international incident that he can’t compliment, bluff of buy his way out of. Terrifying, mind-blowing and yet the voters still/are were worried about Hillary’s emails…ok..that’s gonna pale in comparison to what is happening now.

      • Mrs. Odie says:

        To me that Tweet was most disturbing. “They called to congratulate me! I’m not gonna take the call?” It shows that’s all it takes. Flattery. Kiss his ass and tell him how tremendous he is, and you can get him to do anything. World leaders are smart enough to figure that out.

      • Megan says:

        He can’t attend security briefings because he is too busy watching SNL.

      • Sadezilla says:

        SMD, I’m dumbfounded that one of Trump’s potential Sec. of State picks is David Petraeus. The same guy who had the messy, messy adultery scandal that ended in him pleading guilty to mishandling classified information he gave to Paula Broadwell, his mistress and biographer. So, even though he plead guilty to mishandling classified information, and Sec. Clinton was never found guilty of wrongdoing, it’s totes cool that he could be the next Sec. of State. Don’t worry guys, Gen. Petraeus was thinking with his dick at the expense of potentially leaking classified information, but Evil Hillary had emails!!!!!!!1. Argghh!!!!! I CAN’T with these people.

        Also, I read in a magazine article that some Trumper was passing out handouts in NYC calling HRC “Illuminati Puppet Jezebel Witch.” I told my family they should address me as such forevermore. They didn’t think it was as hilarious as I did…

        Apologies if I’ve posted in the wrong place, I’m on my phone.

      • Sarah says:

        @ Sadezilla : Illuminati Puppet Jezebel Witch? What a great title? A person that I work with recently got into a hissy fit and called me “the lowest of the low!” Because I asked her to return something of mine that she said she didn’t want anyway, that she’s says I “forced” her to take (a smart phone). I too love my new nickname and have considered using it on social media like LOTL (lowest of the low). It’s not as good as IPJW but then you had that one first. Sigh.

    • suze says:

      @kitten – here is some pure gossip about Kellyanne and George Conway. Years ago, George Conway managed to date the then GOP glamour girl of the month, Laura Ingraham. It was quite a coup for him. She passed on some information for the Paula Jones suit, and they had a mutually beneficial relationship, that is, until she dumped him. He then moved on to his B choice, who was Kellyanne.

      All these people have been using each other for years, and none is particularly naive about the political process, least of all dear Kellyanne.

      • Kitten says:

        Holy crap I had no idea. Gross.

      • Lorelai says:

        I have not been able to bring myself to google Kellyanne (because UGH) but I admit I have been curious as to where the hell she came from! I had never heard of her in my life until she started running his campaign; I had hopes that maybe when the election was over, she would go crawl back under whatever rock she came out of in the first place, but apparently no such luck. She seems to be running the show and I don’t know if our country will EVER be rid of her 😓

      • Ashamed 2 b a Fl girl says:

        @Lorelai – she was running Ted Cruz’s campaign before she came to Trump.

      • vava says:

        I predict Kellyann Conway will be the White House Press Secretary.

    • Hazel says:

      Thanks for the link; I found something similar on NPR a few days ago. His conflicts of interest are a lot more intricate than just anything Trump-branded. That pipeline threatening the water of the Standing Rock Sioux? Trump owns an interest. Ditto Phillips 66 and so on.

  3. SusanneToo says:

    SNL is doing a very realistic portrayal of trump, but Kate McK’s KAC is way too benign on that evil, lying liar.

    • Melly says:

      SNL always tries to get you to feel sorry for Kellyanne Conway, which I find a little bit sexist. Why are the women in the Trump admin treated like they are there against their will and/or to be felt sorry for while the men know what they’re doing and are “bad”? Everyone in the Trump admin should be treated like the scum they are, regardless of gender. JMO

      • Tate says:

        Completely agree, Melly. KAC is not some helpless woman being held hostage by Trump. She is a willing participant in this madness.

      • N says:

        You know why.
        It’s the same reason why black people and other minorities are being blamed for HRC loss instead of the majority white women who voted for trump.
        It’s white female privilege. They are to be protected and infantilized at all cost. And they like that privilege and want to keep it, hence trump.

      • Jb says:


      • Insomniac says:

        Agreed. KAC has been part of the right wing lunatic fringe for a very long time. She’s there because she wants to be, and she’s a garbage person. No need for SNL or anyone else to feel sorry for her.

      • mia girl says:

        Kellyanne is more than a willing participant, she is a PROUD participant.

        For effs’ sake, look at this tweet from last night! WTF?

      • SusanneToo says:

        I literally hate Kellyanne Deflectaway.

        “I don’t remember any discussions ever being asked about President Obama or president-elect Obama eight years ago at this time,” Conway said.

        “Well he’s never spoken to the president of Taiwan. It is new so that is why i’m asking,” Cooper explained.

        Conway responded she’s “pretty sure” President Obama made diplomatic calls as president-elect, adding she “can’t imagine” the press was as outraged as they are presently to Trump.

      • Kitten says:

        Agree with everyone above. And lol @ “ultimate hero”.

      • robyn says:

        Outraged that Kellyanne Conway is getting such soft treatment by SNL when she played no small part in getting unqualified conman Trump elected. I was disgusted when she would dodge legitimate questions and whine, “Why are you badgering me?” during media interviews asking reasonable questions.

      • RedWeatherTiger says:

        AGREE. Kellyanne needs to be held accountable for her role in this shitshow. McKinnon made Hillary out to be conniving and more than a little bit crazy and power-hungry, a depiction that did not help her, but Kellyanne is portrayed as this poor, poor, used-up husk of a person? NOPE. Sharpen your satirical pencil, SNL.

      • Lorelai says:

        @SusanneToo: shut UP!! She actually said this?

        “I don’t remember any discussions ever being asked about President Obama or president-elect Obama eight years ago at this time,” Conway said.”

        She actually said that *with a straight face*?!!

        We are truly living in bizarro world. I am thisclose to deleting every news channel and website from my life for the next 4-8 years to keep my sanity intact. I will curl up and watch Gilmore Girls reruns while drinking lots of hot chocolate until this nightmare is over. I just can’t with this constant sh!t anymore.

        ETA that I agree with everyone re: Kate McKinnon’s portrayal of her. WAY too sympathetic. I adore McKinnon, but she’s been off the mark lately w/r/t Kellyanne, especially that episode a few weeks ago where she made it seem like Kellyanne was miserable and regretting her role in everything.

      • SusanneToo says:

        @Lorelai. Yep. When she was being grilled by Anderson Cooper about the phone call. SOP with all the nose-up-the-a$$ Republicans – deflect, deflect, deflect. Never give a straight answer. They know that all their cultists want is “USA, USA, we’re number one.” Too stupid to understand the nuances of co-existing.

      • vava says:

        Yeah, Saturday Night Live needs to sharpen the depiction of Kellyanne Conway, definitely. She is a real bottom-feeder, that’s for sure. I was, for the first time, rather disappointed in Anderson Cooper, it seemed to me that he allowed her to get the upper hand in that interview. He came off weak. She came off SMUG. I think I detest her as much as I detest Trump.

      • mayamae says:

        I agree on Kellyanne Conway, but apparently she does have a good reputation across the board. After the last debate, the MSNBC panel fell all over themselves praising what a beautiful person she was – including Rachel Maddow!! And they’ve repeated it many times. I don’t get it.

    • suze says:

      People need to remember that Kellyanne’s husband was the primary mover behind bringing the Paula Jones lawsuit against Bill Clinton, all those years ago. Kellyanne and her husband have been playing a long, long game. They are both ruthless, savvy political operatives who have just achieved their long term goal of driving the Clintons out of the political game. I would warrant a guess that that goal, more than any love of Trump’s policies, is what drove Kellyanne.

      Also, during the campaign debriefing at Harvard last week, Conway feigned disbelief – with her trademark bland half smile plastered on her face – over the contention that she had run a campaign where white supremacists had a platform. As if she was unaware of the support from the far right. That campaign cravenly invited the neo-Nazi alt right movement in. Made them feel right at home.

      It would bring me great joy in seeing Kellyanne frozen out of Trump’s administration. In fact, in it one of the few things he could do that would make me applaud. She is worse than he is. Or just as bad.

      • Kitten says:

        Wow, I actually didn’t know all of that. Thanks for the info.

      • lightpurple says:

        And I’m going to point out that Paula Jones LOST her lawsuit TWICE. In fact, the actual substantive part of the case never even made it into the trial phase because she couldn’t prove even the most basic requirements for a sexual harassment case to go forward to trial. Clinton only settled because Conway’s crew had already dragged the first loss up to the Supreme Court and were preparing to do so on the second go-round. The case cost more in legal fees than it was ever worth and Jones herself saw none of the settlement.

      • Lorelai says:

        @Suze, knowing Trump, he will throw a fit at something she says or does one day and hopefully kick her to the curb.

        Typically I would chalk this up to wishful thinking – if he was a normal grown man who could handle any sort of conflict – but he is literally an overgrown, petulant toddler who ends up turning on everyone at some point and seems to need to be angry at someone at all times, so hopefully Kellyanne’s turn is coming. Eventually.

      • Dinah says:

        I would prefer to see her simply frozen. After seeing her in a bikini with sagging spidery skin, scraggly breasts, sunburn on her chest, slab butt and cottage cheese thighs, alongside her husbear, with his huge milky white beer gut hanging over his swimming trunks, I was reminded of what proverbial trailer trash who are in with the Bridge and Tunnel Mob look like.

    • Jane's Wasted Talent says:

      She’s beyond horrible- you can see her gloating as she spreads their ridiculous lies, actively enjoying this (that’s one way you know a sociopath; they always have to gloat). Anyway, I’ve renamed her little Leni.* I wish she’d go back to the 1930s and 40s where she belongs, and stop messing up this timeline.


      • Lady D says:

        Her and her husband spent 20 years trying to bring down the Clintons and finally succeeded. Evil wins and even if there are repercussions the Clintons still lose.
        Just for the fun of it, I googled ‘why does evil win,’ and there are approximately 1.7 million answers. There’s probably a picture of a grinning KAC in there somewhere.

      • vava says:

        She truly is vile. Gloating, smug, that awful half smile where she looks as if she’s about to eat you alive. I loathe Ann Coulter, and I loathe Kellyanne Conway. I wonder if they are friends?

      • Dinah says:

        Rules of karma apply. Next time around, Kellyanne gets to be born a poor, disabled, disenfranchised black child in Mississippi whose votes are never counted. She’ll suffer eventually in the form of all the people who she has harmed this go-around. Maybe I’ve seen way too many traumatizing past life regressions, but they’ve made a believer out of me. It may appear as though evil doesn’t reap what it has sewn, but that’s a part of a hellish payback’s illusion. Remember Lee Atwater’s victory dance and then the way he looked right before brain cancer destroyed him? Not gloating about that, but he asked forgiveness of those who he had mocked and exploited for his own selfish gain with terror in his eyes. What goes around eventually finds its way around. Live by the sword, you die by it.

  4. RussianBlueCat says:

    Guess Alec Baldwin will not be invited to the White House anytime soon
    SNL should do a skit of the top ten names for Donald people use on social media. Have Alec reading the names while portraying Donald. That would be a riot

    • Melly says:

      If Trump had even the smallest amount of brains he would be complementing SNL and Baldwin. Is it not obvious that they like to try to get under Trumps skin? Why is Trump giving them the satisfaction? God, our next president is an idiot who can’t even handle an SNL crisis.

      • Carmen says:

        Because he’s used to throwing tantrums when ever he can’t have his own way. In the business world, it gets results. He thinks he can carry this over into the presidency and it will work just the same way. It will get him results, only probably not the kind he wants.

      • Lorelai says:

        It is great – he absolutely cannot help himself. *Anyone else* would know that ignoring it is the way to go (can you imagine if W had reacted publicly and indignantly every single time SNL mocked him over 8 years?! He wouldn’t have had time to do anything else while in office! 😂) but he just CAN’T — he has zero impulse control and we’re all getting a front row seat to his ridiculousness via his Twitter account.

        It would be hilariously funny if he wasn’t actually about to become our President.

    • lightpurple says:

      I hope the Obamas invite him to one of the holiday parties.

      • RussianBlueCat says:

        If that happened Trump would go into a blood orange rage tantrum on Twitter. The writers at SNL would have material for years

      • lightpurple says:

        And perhaps he would then stroke out and be unable to take office.

      • SusanneToo says:

        @LP. I spent eight years praying Cheney would have a gruesome end and it didn’t happen. We need to come up with something else.

      • Dinah says:

        Cheney looks like he’s on life support. He’s suffering and can’t die. He’s not living. He’s existing. As for Trump, a lot of people have noticed how Paul Ryan and the Republicans have hunkered and bunkered down. All seems quiet on the Congressional front. Trump is not one of them. Pence is. Politicians are like Olympic gymnasts (the senior Soviet gymnasts almost had a mutiny when Olga Korbut charmed the world without paying her proper dues). Trump started at the top and plans to work his way up. He’ll be brought down and swiftly because he has no allegiance to the Republicans and they do not have any allegiance to him. They can and will out-maneuver him politically. As for My Pencil (Mike Pence), he’ll get the head job by default and govern as a moderate. Trump is politcally tone-deaf; the Republicans in Congress are selecting their waltzing music behind closed doors. Putin may be playing him, but it is the Republicans who already have the bow on Trump’s violin strings. They’re cunning and cunningness requires the patience to know exactly the moment to strike. He is living proof that you need to be careful what you wish for because your wish may be your nightmare come true.

  5. Melly says:

    Just tried reading our president elect’s tweet – unbelievable! Totally unpresidential, not funny and American politics can’t get any worse. Sad.

  6. minx says:

    He forgot his usual exclamation point after “Sad!”
    I’m old enough to have watched the first SNLs in 1975 when they mocked Gerald Ford, for gods sake. Every president since then has been parodied…every president since the beginning of our country has been roasted by somebody. This big orange baby is just too dumb and vain to understand the notion of freedom of speech.

    • RussianBlueCat says:

      He is fine with freedom of speech, until he feels insulted. Did he not realize that running for public office he would be the target of satire or read things that were not flattering? I honestly believe the rumours Donald never expected to win

    • Lorelai says:

      @Minx, yes! I just said something similar above. That is what SNL does, they mock everyone, especially politicians. Literally everyone else is able to ignore it or laugh it off, but this jackass just cannot help himself.

      Is he going to spend his entire term in office bitching about SNL on Twitter FFS?!

    • Ashamed 2 b a Fl girl says:

      Well, he believes in freedom of speech for himself…just not the rest of us. It’s just the beginning my friends.

      • Andrea says:

        Can’t he get impeached for infringing on 1st amendment rights if do something drastic with them???

    • Sarah says:

      @ minx: exactly. That is what SNL does. It’s called comedy, Mr. Trump. And you just sat down in the presidential hot seat.

  7. Ankhel says:

    Well, this is meta-fuckery. Laugh, or wince?

    • Insomniac says:

      This is what happens when two bullies cross paths.

      • Ankhel says:

        Do you mean Baldwin and Trump?

      • Insomniac says:

        Ankhel: Yes. Even though I agree with Baldwin politically, I think he’s quite the bully himself. Not that I *care* if he’s bullying Trump, mind you, although getting a pissy reaction from that Cheeto-dusted ham hock is serious shooting-fish-in-a-barrel stuff.

      • Ankhel says:

        Baldwin may not be the best human being in private. Still, I don’t think simply parodying a happily public figure like the president elect can be called bullying? Caricatures have been part of political life for centuries, and Baldwin’s job is acting.

  8. Shambles says:

    Meanwhile he’s going to start WWIII with a phone call before he even gets inaugurated.

    Barf. Barf barf. Part hangover, part Trump nausea.

    The sketch was really good though. I loved the joke about KAC’s dead soul and hair, and “he really did this. These are real people.” SNL is breaching the 4th wall, so you know it’s bad.

    • Kitten says:

      I’m hungover too and this sh*t isn’t helping, Shamby.

      Did you see the new Sec of Education? I hope we can combat that sh*t at the state level because in Mass we just rejected a proposal to expand charter schools. This new SoE looks like a nightmare for public schools.

      • suze says:

        DeVos is dreadful. Even among conservatives here in Michigan, her family is despised.

      • Lorelai says:

        Kitten, I honest to god had to finally stop reading about the cabinet appointments. Each day brought some fresh new hell and the last straw for me was when I read he was considering Palin for Secretary of Veterans Affairs.

        And that Petraeus would have to – ready for this? – CHECK IN WITH HIS PAROLE OFFICER as Secretary of State – and the kicker, that the parole officer would have access to his computer and correspondence. Classified materials included. And no one in Trump’s “administration” saw the irony in this.

        You absolutely CANNOT make this crap up. No one would believe it was a plausible story if there was a movie made about all of this f*ckery. After reading that bit about the parole officer, I shut my computer down and walked away. It is just too much 😖

      • Swak says:

        @kitten, just had a long conversation on FB with people who believes she is qualified and doesn’t need to have any experience in the field of education. I’m a retired teacher and just about lost it. Then my brother, also a former teacher (both of us in public school) asked what credentials the surgeon general needed. Needless to say there was no answer to that one.

      • SusanneToo says:

        Because of course there are no muslim, hindu, Jewish, atheist children in the schools.

  9. IMO says:

    Has the next president nothing better to do than tweeting about a variety-comedy show?!

    • Ankhel says:

      No. Or, yes, but he lacks the competence, experience and intelligence necessary to even know where to start. So he falls back on the stuff he knows.

    Awwww…. wittle Donniekins got his wittle feewings hurt. Why doesn’t he just reach for the remote and change the channel? Does he plan to subject himself to this every Saturday night and throw a Twitter tantrum every Sunday morning? Is he a glutton for punishment or what? Jesus, my seven year old grandson acts more emotionally mature than this bozo.

    • Hazel says:

      Yes! Why is he even watching SNL if he despises it so much? Why?

      • Ankhel says:

        Because he’s such a giant narcissist, he can’t help himself. Articles and programs that focus on him are his catnip, even when he knows he’s being mocked. Cue tantrum, every time.

        Especially with SNL, I suspect, because he can’t really call Baldwin a loser. That’s normally his first and last defense. Problem is, Baldwin’s white, male, rich, successful, and has a trophy wife. It drives Trump up the wall, and dear, sweet Lord, it’s funny!

  11. Onerous says:

    Have you guys seen this woman’s responses to Trump’s tweets? Spot on.

    • Chrissy says:

      Hurrah! She said it all in the only language the Orange One seems to understand – tweets. I hope she stays safe, the Trumpeters will freak and may resort to violence to defend the jackass.

    • SusanneToo says:

      Wow!!! That’s fantastic. She nailed it!

    • Janetdr says:

      Oh thank you! That was lovely. Here’s to us making it happen

    • Carmen says:

      “I’m disgusted by you. And you know what the real secret is? You’re disgusted by you, too.”

      And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the real story of Donald Trump’s life.

    • mia girl says:

      Her twitter takedown of Trump is giving me life this morning. Brilliant.

      Alec Baldwin’s simple response is pretty inspired as well…

      • Lorelai says:

        Alec’s response is perfection! I actually LOL’d. I hope he keeps it up for the next 4-8 years. (::sobs::)

      • jwoolman says:

        Baldwin’s tweet that he will stop if Trump releases his taxes actually worried me. What if Trump actually does let loose of his tax forms? We would lose Alec Baldwin’s wonderful Trump impression! We have to have something to get us through the dark days ahead.

    • Kitten says:

      YASSSSSSS! She went IN.

    • Lorelai says:

      @Onerous that was GREAT! Many thanks for the laugh.

      I hope everyone who tweets him calls him “Donny” like she did, he would probably hate that 🙂

    • Hazel says:

      Onerous: thank you! That was epic & inspiring!

  12. LinaLamont says:

    “Donald Trump tweets about SNL’s skit about how he tweets too much”

    It’s like an Escher.

  13. Cali says:

    Has anyone here seen these Conan clips:

    Even More Leaked Phone Calls Between Donald Trump & Barack Obama:

  14. Nancy says:

    A big ditto to every comment above me and those that will follow. How did this happen.

    • Alix says:

      American stupidity epidemic. No known cure.

      • Original T.C. says:

        Sadly even Trump voters polled after voting agreed he is not qualified. The still went ahead and voted for him out of self interest: he is pro white nationalist putting White people first AND he will cut taxes on his fans who make $70,000 and up.

        I hate Jon Stewart and others trying to make the Trump win about non-racist poor White people who are worried about jobs and were ignored by HRC! Especially when he started using 9/11 fire fighters. Guess what Jon, fire fighters make significantly more money (for risking their lives) than they average Joe and they are required to save POC or they get fired. Also he did a video documentation showing how Republicans do nothing to help the permanently wounded 9/11 fire fighters.

      • lightpurple says:

        The average annual firefighter salary is in the area of $45,000.

      • Kitten says:

        I mentioned this in another post but my BF is a paramedic and he said all the firefighters he deals with are big-time Trump supporters. Ruined my firefighter fantasy forever.

        I’m was done with the “poor disenfranchised whites” narrative before it even started. Stop coddling and infintalizing these people.

        Just read this:

        And I think it’s pretty prefect.

      • Betsy says:

        @ Kitten – I can ruin it more! I think it was in Virginia (Fairfax?) that a group of firefighters so relentlessly sexually harassed a female colleague that she was driven to suicide. They outed an affair she had, I think some nude pics got stolen; it does not paint a pretty picture of the men.

    • Betsy says:

      Sexism. An orchestrated 30 years smear campaign. The end of the Fairness Doctrine.

      But mostly sexism. I’m going to do a Mean Girls-style imaginary animal attack of the next person who says, “I want a woman, just not that one.”

  15. IlsaLund says:

    I read somewhere that Trumps campaign team was gloating over how they manipulated and played the news media and are still doing it effectively. Apparently a study was done that said that only about 20% of people actually use Twitter and most of his Tweets would have been ignored had the news media not broadcast and blasted his tweets out….thereby spreading Drumpfs message to the masses.

    And Drumpf intends to bypass the news media and continue tweeting because he knows the news media will continue to do what it’s done and make an issue of every tweet, reporting it on tv and putting it front page on newspapers. That’s how he communicated before the election and how he plans to continue communicating post election.

  16. robyn says:

    Media spent and still does spend far too much time, ENORMOUS time, talking about Trump’s stupid tweets and Clinton’s emails. It is SAD that this genital grabbing mafia-type conman won the election. It’s sad that so many people voted him … even the ones who should have known better. It’s sad Russia helped him and he seems to be getting away with it. It’s sad that he didn’t show his taxes … who knows what’s in there. (Sure hope the FBI that also assisted him at least gives it a look for criminal activity and conflicts of interest.) It’s sad how sexist and racist people are without even really knowing it. It’s bloody annoying how SNL shows pity for smug-faced Kellyanne Conway considering she, too, had a big hand in getting this unqualified jackass elected.

    • Olenna says:

      Well said. This creature will be our next POTUS and that hateful bimbo helped make it happen. I find nothing funny about any of this.

  17. LA says:

    God bless you, Alec. God bless you. Please never stop; you are the hero we need!

  18. Bex says:

    Kellyanne Conway got a way more sympathetic portrayal than she deserved. She’s evil. I hope Alec Baldwin spends the next 4 years (oh god) trolling the orange one at every possible opportunity.

  19. robyn says:

    SNL needs to drop the Kellyanne sidekick stuff and bring in someone to play Steve Bannon, not as a devil, but as a real man who promotes hatred. Then we might get to the root of racism and sexism in America in an unusual way. Media has failed us miserably and I am counting on the comics.

    I think Rosie O’Donnell should play Steve Bannon, she could do this. It would be awesome.

    • suze says:

      I agree. She isn’t even that powerful on his transition team. They need to cast Bannon and Priebus and get busy.

  20. SusanneToo says:

    Rancid Penis was on FTN this morning doing his best Kellyanne impression – deflect, deflect, deflect, never give a straight answer. I need to explore meditation.

  21. original kay says:

    This might bring some hope today. It made me cry 🙂

    • SusanneToo says:

      That’s a very powerful statement of principles. Thanks for posting.

      Also, everyone, if you want to LYAO just read the story following the above. It’s about trump and unflattering pictures. Be sure and click on the tweet links. Insanely funny.😂😂😂😂😂

  22. Gigi La Moore says:

    This is going to be a long 4 years.

  23. frankly says:

    From now on can the site always use a picture of a plate of mashed potatoes as a Trump story header image? Because mashed potatoes are very delicious and Trump’s face very not.

  24. reg says:

    Kellyanne Conway, has that creepy smile, and looks like she just
    escaped torture chamber from that “Hostel” film. I just heard her
    on the radio this morning bragging how Donald won because
    he’s for middle class workers, good luck with that when
    these middle class workers realize they have no job, no insurance, and have to work
    as volunteers to get their food stamps after greedy republicans
    are done dismantling Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security,
    and give the rich bigger tax cuts than Bush.

  25. jerkface says:

    When will the shadow government step in a take care of our problem? Its not like they haven’t done it before. Has anyone seen my tin foil sombrero?

    • Lorelai says:

      I know. Every single day I wait hopefully for some actual adults to step in and shut this alllllll down. And then realize there is no one to do it. Then I curl up in a fetal position.

  26. HK9 says:

    #1-One of Satan’s minions needs to shut down Trump’s twitter account.
    #2-This might be just me, but am I the only one who wonders for someone who is the President Elect (and I really hate saying it-ack!) why the hell does he have time to watch SNL??

  27. Amelie says:

    I think that one of the best SNL skits was called The Bubble. It was refreshing that SNL writers allowed some balance to their progressive agenda:

  28. gwen says:

    I’m just thrilled to know that no matter how busy trump is, or how annoying he finds SNL, he’s going to continue watching and being pissed off about it.
    And letting us know how thinned skinned he truly is.

  29. prince says:

    hildabeast is losing in the wisconsin recounts. she gained 5 votes while trump gained 6. jill stein paid 3 million dollars for the recount and hillary killington is backing and supporting the recount. lol

    • Annetommy says:

      If you are over 15, using lol makes you seem immature. Are you really laughing out loud? There is a process for a recount, and it’s ongoing. Fine.

      • SusanneToo says:

        @Annetoomy. When you feed a troll, he’s just like a hog – he’ll come rooting around for more. Best to starve them and let them roll around in slop elsewhere.

    • Bootsie says:

      Without Hilary to hate what will be the point of you?

  30. Megan M says:

    Why are Republicans fighting the recounts so hard? Don’t they believe the results will just be confirmed, so everyone can be sure the system works?

    • robyn says:

      It’s not so much the count that concerns me but the electronic hacking that could easily transform a vote for Clinton to Trump. The Russians have proven they will stop at nothing to get Trump elected and this would be easypeasy for them. Otherwise, I have to think that people actually preferred an ignorant genital grabbing conman and egomaniac over an intelligent woman with a great resume. There’s just no excuse for that and I hate to think something like that could actually happen without manipulation from outside forces.

  31. SusanneToo says:

    This weekend’s On the Media was very good. The entire show was about the lying liar #donthecon and the media’s responsibility to call him out.

  32. BooBooLaRue says:


  33. HoustonGrl says:

    There is simply no way to respond to this. I hope our country will be safe until the time he is impeached.

  34. Tate says:

    He is Twitter provoking China now. Guys, we are in for a world of hurt.

  35. Erica_V says:

    Last night I saw a preview of 60 Minutes – Paul Ryan JOKING that he just calls Trump on his cell phone. And he’s LAUGHING. LAUGHING about how ridiculous that is.

    Do they already have a plan in place to start impeachment on Jan 22nd because how can you laugh about such an awful breech of security when you’ve been crucifying Hillary for NOTHING for months and months and months!?!?!

    I just want to scream.

    • SusanneToo says:

      Ryan is a weasel and you better believe he’s got all the impeachment ducks in a row. But it will still be a living hell with repubs in charge. My consolation is that so many trump voters and third party voters will get what they deserve. Unfortunately, many innocents will suffer, also.

  36. Bread and Circuses says:

    This guy has made 12 appointments out of the 600+ he needs to make, and rather than working on that or reading up on this “diplomacy” concept, he’s busy watching TV and tweeting about his widdle huwt feewings.

    My greatest hope for this guy is that he proves utterly useless at governance and that he constantly, disastrously blunders through the plans of the people attempting to govern in his place.
