Trump asked whether the DOJ and the FCC could investigate 'SNL' after it mocked him, The Daily Beast report says

Aside from being thin-skinned, especially for a politician, Trump exposed his authoritarian bent and his lack of appreciation for the First Amendment and protected speech.

Former President Trump asked the Justice Department to look into "Saturday Night Live" while he was in office, The Daily Beast reported Tuesday.

Two sources told the news outlet that Trump talked to advisers and lawyers in 2019 about what the Justice Department, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the courts could do to look into late-night comedy shows such as "SNL."

“It was more annoying than alarming, to be honest with you,” one source told The Daily Beast.

Trump often lashed out at the NBC sketch comedy show for its skits about him, one time tweeting: “It’s truly incredible that shows like Saturday Night Live, not funny/no talent, can spend all of their time knocking the same person (me), over & over, without so much of a mention of ‘the other side.’”

“Like an advertisement without consequences. Same with Late Night Shows. Should Federal Election Commission and/or FCC look into this?” Trump said on Twitter.

    Trump is despicable.

    But, didn't Clouseau just lash out at a sympathetic CNN reporter?

    Hardly comparable. The reporter attempted to put words in Biden's mouth. He was annoyed. Plus he apologized.

    Yeah. Clouseau's not despicable. Just demented.
