Donald Trump says Saturday Night Live is biased and not-funny, and SNL cast member Pete Davidson has a response to that. The president-elect is not going to like it.

On Sunday, Donald tweeted that he’d “watched parts of @nbcsnl Saturday Night Live last night.” adding that “it is a totally one-sided, biased show – nothing funny at all.” He then demanded that SNL give him “equal time.”

Pete Davidson, who at age 23 is currently the youngest member of SNL‘s cast, gave Donald Trump a scorching response via Instagram:

“Never been more proud. Fuck you bitch.”

Ouch. Donald Trump, Mike Pence, the GOP and the “Christian” right can abuse democracy to launch a hostile takeover of America, but they can’t make us like it.

Never been more proud. Fuck you bitch

One of Pete Davidson’s Instagram followers, who goes by the handle_berenice____, aptly commented:

‘Crazy how he is begging people to be nice to him. To not say mean things about him and his VP! Crazy how he is still trying to turn the country against each other. And to top it off why haven’t they taken him off social media. But the crazy thing is that this is our president and America looks like a show of the Kardashian’s now! Stay tuned weekly.’

Pete Davidson’s response is on point: SNL no longer has any obligation to provide “equal time” to anyone, if they ever did at all. The “equal time” rule applies only to media outlets covering candidates during the election. In any case, the 2016 presidential candidates never did receive “equal time” during the primaries or the general election. The news coverage of Donald Trump by far exceeded that of the other candidates and played a major part in his stunning victory.

Here’s a graph with the paid (through ads) vs. earned (free) media coverage for all the candidates during the primaries.

Furthermore, in the last days of the primaries, Vox reported that Hillary Clinton got more negative news coverage than any of the other major candidates.

As Alec Baldwin, the actor who plays Donald Trump on SNL, pointed out in response to Donald Trump’s critique of his sketch:

He then added that – given that Donald Trump lost the popular vote by over 1.5 million – maybe he should try being a president for all of us, not just those who voted for him.

Here’s the hilarious SNL sketch from Saturday that Donald Trump and Pete Davidson are talking about.
