Alec Baldwin Claims Trump Is 'Punishment' for America's Sins

'Saturday Night Live' Reimagines 'It's a Wonderful Life' With Trump as President

Saturday Night Live ended 2018 with a special parody of It's a Wonderful Life, which imagined the world without Trump as president.

Trump has been a favorite subject of the comedy show and his presidency has proved ripe for skits in the program. Trump on 16 December called SNL and NBC "democratic spin machines".

Trump also has attacked Saturday Night Live before.

"SNL" cast members played members of Trump's cabinet, with Sarah Sanders doing public relations for Facebook in the alternate timeline and Vice President Mike Pence getting a post-politics job as a DJ.

CNN's Alisyn Camerota and John Berman took turns mocking President Donald Trump today after he suggested NBC's Saturday Night Live is breaking the law by ridiculing him and his administration, advising him to "not mess with our comedy". Trump asked in the sketch. "It was foiled by a team of transgender Navy seals", Clarence the angel responds, referencing the ban that was announced by Trump in three surprise tweets in July 2017. "It is all nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials", the president tweeted Sunday morning. Melania Trump (Cecily Strong) says she got divorced, improved her English and launched a real estate empire.

The sketch really takes aim at Trump, and we can kind of see why he's so annoyed by it.

Trump has hosted SNL twice before in 2004 and 2015.

He said they must rally behind the person who eventually replaces Trump.

"Should be tested in courts, can't be legal?" he continued.

Other guests included Academy Award victor Robert De Niro ("Goodfellas", "Raging Bull") and his "Meet the Parents" co-star Ben Stiller, who most recently directed the now airing Showtime miniseries "Escape at Dannemora".

Trump and SNL share a rocky relationship, with the President calling Baldwin's performance an agony for people forced to watch it.
