Incoming press secretary Sean Spicer appeared on NBC’s “Today” show on Monday and bashed the network’s “Saturday Night Live” during the interview as “disappointing.”
“It was not funny; it was mean-spirited,” Spicer told NBC’s Tamron Hall. “And it’s gone from being a show you could sit back and get a good laugh out of to being something that’s frankly mean and bad television.”
On Saturday night, “SNL” attacked Trump’s first press conference since winning the election and nothing was off limits — not even golden showers.
With Alec Baldwin returning as the president-elect, “SNL” kicked off the faux news conference by solidifying the fact that yes, Trump really will be the country’s president in a few short days.
“I would like to start by answering the question, what’s on everyone’s mind — yes, this is me live,” said Baldwin as Trump. “On January 20th, I, Donald Trump, will become the 45th president of the United States. Two months later Mike Pence will become the 46th.”
Spicer isn’t the only person condemning the recent episode of “SNL,” as Trump himself took to Twitter to bash the show as “a complete hit job.”
.@NBCNews is bad but Saturday Night Live is the worst of NBC. Not funny, cast is terrible, always a complete hit job. Really bad television!
