Donald Trump has called Saturday Night Live a “Democratic spin machine” after the show mocked him in a parody sketch of a famous Christmas movie.

The president accused NBC, the weekly comedy show’s network, of “one-sided” coverage.

Labelling it all as “nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials,” Mr Tump suggested it should “be tested in courts,” as it “can’t be legal?

A world where Trump was never President, eh? #

He alleged the subjects of his anger “only defame & belittle!” and finished how tweet with the word: “Collusion?”

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?

In the SNL sketch, Mr Trump, played as ever by Alec Baldwin, declares: “Sometimes I wish I had never been president.”

He is then visited by a guardian angel in a parody of the 1946 Frank Capra film It’s A Wonderful Life and shown what life in the White House would be like if he were not.

It was a wonderful show.

Watch the sketches: 

“Everyone looks so different,” Mr Trump asks at one point, asking “what are those things on their faces?”

“Those are called smiles,” the angel replies.

The sketch also featured comedian Kate McKinnon as president Hillary Clinton, Robert De Niro as special counsel Robert Mueller and Ben Stiller as former Trump attorney Michael Cohen.F

In real life, Cohen was jailed for three years on Wednesday for, among other things, making secret payments to women who claimed they had affairs with Mr Trump, who has called him “weak” for working with Mr Mueller.

Mr Trump has called the Mueller investigation a witch hunt.
