Donald Trump Asks About Retribution Against Networks After SNL Skit

Early Sunday morning, President Donald Trump tweeted declaring “the rigged and corrupt media” an “enemy of the people” once again. However, this time, he took things a step further, asking:

“How do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution?”

The “hit job” the President is referring to is a Saturday Night Live skit criticizing Trump’s declaration of a national emergency along the United States’ southern border.

Trump’s statements come just days after members of the media were attacked at a campaign rally held in El Paso, TX. In that incident, a Trump wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat physically shoved a BBC cameraperson while shouting “F**k the media!”

According to BBC Washington news editor Elanor Montague, the crowd had been “whipped up into a frenzy” by anti-media rhetoric throughout the rally by Trump and other speakers.

This is also just four months after pipe bombs were mailed to several of Trump’s high-profile critics at CNN offices in New York.
