President Trump does not think Saturday Night Live is funny and even thinks the show is spreading “fake news.” On Sunday, Trump tweeted his reaction to the comedy show’s latest episode — which just so happened to be a rerun.



The original episode aired Dec. 15, and Trump took to social media then to air his reaction.


Many on the internet pointed out his apparent forgetfulness, leading with SNL’s Leslie Jones. She posted his tweet on Instagram and wrote, “This guy is an idiot!! It was a rerun you moron!!” She added the hashtag “Lord help us please.” (Trump actually hosted the show in 2004 and 2015.)


SNL wasn’t the only show Trump tweeted about Sunday. Apparently upset about the fact that Judge Jeanine was pulled from Fox News’ lineup that night, he implored the network to bring her back.




Pirro was reportedly suspended for Islamophobic remarks pertaining to Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress. “Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran, 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested,” Pirro said on her show last week. “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?” 

Trump also urged his followers to support Fox’s Tucker Carlson, whose past controversial remarks were recently unearthed by Media Matters for America.
