SNL Lampoons Trump’s Inability to Stop Tweeting and Focus on Transition Efforts

captureSaturday Night Live took on Donald Trump yet again, this time focusing on how the mogul can’t help but tweet random people when he has bigger things to be doing as president-elect.

As he is known to do from time to time, Trump has recently been retweeting his random supporters during his various online tangents. In tonight’s cold open, Alec Baldwin depicted Trump being so pre-occupied with his Twitter vendettas, that he can’t pay attention in the middle of a security briefing.

Recent reports indicate that Trump has been turning away security briefings ever since he won the election. Trump eventually promises to put down the phone and focus, but he can’t resist getting back on his phone for more than two minutes.


Kate McKinnon portrayed Kellyanne Conway, who explained to government officials that Trump’s tweeting is important for distracting the media from his business conflicts and his cabinet picks.

Oh yes, and you must watch all the way to the end to see how the show depicts Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon.
