Trump's Press Secretary Slams 'SNL' Over Alec Baldwin Skit: 'It Was Mean-Spirited'
Trump called the show 'not funny.'
The war between President-elect Donald Trump and Saturday Night Live just went up another notch over the weekend after the show aired another skit starring Alec Baldwin, who mocked Trump.
On the Today show Monday, incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer blasted SNL's edgy skit that had Baldwin mocking a contentious press conference Trump held last week.
“It was not funny; it was mean-spirited,” said Spicer. “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.”
He added that the show is “disappointing.”
Following the airing of the skit, Trump took to Twitter Sunday morning and blasted show.
.@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!January 15, 2017
Baldwin has not reponded to Trump's comments, nor has NBC or Saturday Night Live.
