Donald Trump Says 'SNL' Should Be Canceled After Mocking Him: 'Boring and Unfunny'
Donald Trump is calling for the end of Saturday Night Live after the sketch comedy show's brutal lampooning of the GOP presidential candidate over the weekend.
A pouting Alec Baldwin portrayed Trump skulking behind Hillary Clinton as the Jaws theme played.
As Trump, Baldwin urged his supporters to vote on Election Day, saying: “Get out and vote November 35th!”
The gag comes after Trump mistakenly told his backers to cast their ballots on November 28, 20 days after the actual Election Day.
Another sketch portrayed the women in Trump's life who were fed up at all the groping allegations, threatening to walk out on him.
Trump hosted SNL less than a year ago but now he's calling on NBC, the network that aired his reality show competition The Apprentice, to pull the plug.
“Time to retire the boring and unfunny show,” he tweeted.

Election is being rigged by the media, in a coordinated effort with the Clinton campaign, by putting stories that never happened into news!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 16, 2016
Trump's attack on SNL is part of the ratcheting up of his charge that the election is fixed, an allegation he began to make over the summer.
On Saturday, he said: “The election is absolutely being rigged by corrupt media pushing completely false allegations and outright lies in an effort to elect her president.”
Even his running mate Mike Pence doesn’t seem to be buying it.
On Meet the Press Sunday, Pence said: “We will absolutely accept the outcome of the election. The American people are tired of the obvious bias in the national media - that's where the idea of a rigged election comes from.”
A Washington Post poll puts Hillary Clinton just 4 points ahead of Trump. Clinton leads with 47 percent of the vote, with Trump at 43 percent.
The Washington Post claims his numbers have suffered a downward spiral due to the leak of the now-infamous tape where he discussed unwanted sexual advances to women.
