Trump hits back at late night shows critical of Republicans
 
Ha Ha Ha ha . Whaa! Them shows been pickin on me. :D Trumpy cry baby poopy pants.

President Donald Trump lashed out Saturday against late night television show hosts who have been sharply critical of his administration and Republicans.

Trump took to Twitter to argue that the GOP should be given "equal time" because of the "one-sided" coverage, an apparent reference to Federal Communications Commission rules dealing with political candidates during elections.

"Late Night host(s) are dealing with the Democrats for their very 'unfunny' & repetitive material, always anti-Trump!" he tweeted. "Should we get Equal Time?"

Trump also suggested "more and more people" are clamoring for more coverage of Republicans, who control the White House and Congress

Seth Meyers, who has been among the most vocal Trump critics, immediately tweeted back that he'd "love" to have Trump on his NBC show, and sarcastically provided his studio address as "15 Penguin Avenue, Antarctica."

ABC's Jimmy Kimmel, another critic, added : "Excellent point Mr. President! You should quit that boring job - I'll let you have my show ALL to yourself #MAGA."

And Comedy Central's Daily Show responded by posting — "in the spirit of equal time"— Trump's now infamous off-camera comments in 2005 to an "Access Hollywood" host in which he used coarse language to boast about groping women.

Others pointed out that "equal time" is meant for campaign season, not to protect elected officials from being the butt of television humor.

"That's not how it works. You're not campaigning. You're the president," Mike DiCenzo, a writer and producer for NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon," tweeted . "Now kindly stop tweeting nonsense and go do your job for once."

The FCC rule says political candidates should be treated equally by broadcast television stations when it comes to selling or giving away air time. Over the years, the commission has broadly exempted news programs, including late night talk shows, from the provision.

Trump's tweets followed shortly after a segment on Fox News' "Fox and Friends" critiquing many late show hosts for taking "a hard turn to the left."

The president's reference to "dealing with Democrats" appears to allude to recent reports that Kimmel consulted with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, before delivering a series of emotional and personal monologues against Republicans' attempts to repeal and replace the health care law that was championed by former President Barack Obama.

Kimmel's son, Billy, was born this year with a congenital heart defect, a pre-existing condition the late night host argued would have prevented the boy from getting health insurance if not for the Affordable Care Act that Obama signed in 2010.

Trump's ire for his late night critics— who also include CBS' Stephen Colbert and even Fallon at times — is not totally unfounded.

A study by researchers at George Mason University in Virginia found that Trump in on pace to "easily eclipse" the most jokes about any person tracked by its Center for Media and Public Affairs since it began monitoring in 1988.

The New York billionaire was the target of more than 1,000 jokes during his first 100 days in office, surpassing the 936 jokes made at Obama's expense in his first year in office in 2009 and more than the 546 about George W. Bush in his first year as president in 2001, according to the study.

Puerto Rico is still a hole, electricity and water are still scarce.

No one knows what's going on with North Korea, and the situation has escalated over the past few months.

The economy took a good hit due to the hurricanes, first net job losses in seven years.

We're still dealing with the aftermath of the largest mass shooting in history.

And Trump is whining like a b-tch on Twitter about late-night comedians telling jokes and criticizing him.

Respect is earned, not given, and so far he has earned no respect for himself or the office he holds.

Puerto Rico is still a hole, electricity and water are still scarce because the liberal Government is so heavily indebted that there were huge issues with both BEFORE the hurricane hit them. :wave

Like they would never, ever get totaled out by a hurricane sitting in the middle of the Gulf anyway. :rolls

Did you see the aid we gave them while their leader was to lazy to get her own people to help distribute that aid? What a disgrace for a territory wishing to become a State. :rolls They are a vacation that never ends down there, no one in a hurry to do much of anything.. lazy.

Not Trump' s fault at all.

Trump really can't fathom that people just don't like him. If they criticize or God forbid joke, it's always because the Democrats are paying them? He is incapable of understanding that not everything is a conspiracy against him. He also alluded to the idea in his little Twitter rant on San Juan, PR's mayor.

What a limpd-ck.

More and more people are suggesting that Republicans (and me) should be given Equal Time on T.V.
Not sure he's aware yet but a president can get more coverage than Twitter's character limits. Every major network would air him, unfiltered, live and without restraint, if he wanted to, as they did when he was a candidate. He could also hold a press conference, any time. Or Fox and Friends. They would drool for the chance to breathe the same air in the same room as Trump.

Trump is acting like he has no voice? I mean, really? :rolls

Also, "Equal Time"? Like the Fairness Doctrine? I remember when some on the right were wringing their hands over Obama and the Democrats possibly bringing that back in the beginning of his tenure, but then here's the guy they voted for whining about needing "equal time" in the media. Heh.

The debt has NOTHING to do with the situation, with the hurricane. It's primarily a problem of destroyed infrastructure and coordination. It's not because Americans in PR are "lazy", they're doing as much as they can given the devastation. Although it was fun to watch you categorize an entire US territory as lazy and always on vacation lol.

Also this is that "lazy" leader you're talking about.

You'll never see Trump waist deep in storm water.

And nothing of what you said excuses his pathetic behavior.

Debt has everything to do with it. Tell that to the Mayor of Detroit in your neck of the woods. :mad The infrastructure has not be maintained down there for a generation, since the liberals spent not only all the money but all any Bank with any sense would lend them. :rolls

Can you say Detroit? I know you can... :eek :mad

To say debt has nothing to do with their problems they had before the hurricane is an out right lie. :wave they have caused huge problems for them selves for many years, and it has caught up to them big time. Now the place is flattened once again by yet another Hurricane. Who needs more of this crap.

BTW you will never see Hillary or Bernie waste deep in storm water either. :rolls What an idiotic comment to make. :rolls

Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel, and other late-night hosts are bein' bias against Republicans? Say it ain't so!

The late-night talk show world is a dying breed. Partisanship has slowly destroyed what entertainment it had left. No one takes these whining libs seriously anymore. It's predictability gone wild. Might as well watch MSNBC. Same difference.
