Former President Donald Trump has issued a statement denying a report in The Daily Beast that he was so upset with his portrayal on Saturday Night Liveduring his time in office that he wanted to know if the Justice Department or FCC could take action.
In a statement, Trump said, "The story that I asked the Department of Justice to go after ratings challenged (without Trump) Saturday Night Live, and other late night losers, is total Fake News. It was fabricated, there were no sources, and yet the Lamestream Media goes with it."
In a new report, The Daily Beast cited two unnamed sources, that in 2019, Trump asked advisers and lawyers if the government entities could "probe or mitigate SNL, Jimmy Kimmel, and other late-night comedy mischief-makers."
