On October 8th, The second episode of the 42nd season of the popular show Saturday Night Live (SNL) premiered. This episode mostly focused on the presidential debates that have been going on in preparation of the election coming up this November. SNL, as many know, is a comedy skit show, so naturally SNL had people acting as both candidates, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and making fun of them. Alec Baldwin, the successful actor, was chosen to portray Trump, and the candidate was less than happy with the media representation. “Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me. Time to retire the boring and unfunny show.” Trump tweeted in response “Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!” He finished his statement, obviously bitter. SNL didn’t give a response and the whole ordeal ended.
