Trump calls SNL spoof ‘hit job,’ calls for end of show

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

Don­ald Trump has some choice words for “Satur­day Night Live.”

The Repub­li­can presidential can­di­date tweeted early Sun­day morn­ing that the show’s skit de­pict­ing him this week was a “hit job.” Trump went on to write that it’s “time to re­tire” the show, call­ing it “bor­ing and un­funny” and adding that Alec Bald­win’s por­trayal of him “stinks.”

Satur­day’s show fea­tured a send-up of the sec­ond presidential de­bate last held last Sun­day at Wash­ing­ton Uni­ver­sity in St. Louis.

Bald­win, who retweeted Trump’s cri­tique, has been play­ing him on “Satur­day Night Live” since its 42nd sea­son kicked off a few weeks ago, with Kate McKin­non de­pict­ing Demo­cratic presidential hope­ful Hil­lary Clin­ton.

Trump him­self hosted an episode of “Satur­day Night Live” last Novem­ber.
