Welcome to Tuesday, politicians and pundits...
Is it parody or collusion?
President Donald Trump tweeted over the weekend that Saturday Night Live’s “Republican hit jobs” should be looked into as they’re “the real collusion!”
“SNL” opened with a sketch featuring Alec Baldwin as Trump, mocking the president’s press conference earlier in the week where he’d declared a national emergency to secure funding for a wall along the southern border.
Trump responded on Twitter, writing:
"Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC! Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution? Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion!"
Has a line been crossed? Is SNL a "total republican hit job" that should be "looked into"?

In honor of Presidents' Day, we ran a poll asking "Who's the best fake U.S. president?"
The overwhelming winner with 26.3% of the vote? Josiah "Jed" Bartlet from "West Wing."
Next was 12.2% saying "Other"—which usually meant "Donald Trump" or "Obama" in comments.
While Bartlet may not have been a surprise, the 3rd and 4th place choices were:
Frank Underwood from "House of Cards."
President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho from "Idiocracy."
There's still time to vote. Cast your ballot here.

Trump long time friend Roger Stone threatened a Federal Judge. His apology isn’t enough. This administration and all the criminals in it need to go to jail. Impeachment is long overdue!
I believe in the end Trump will go down hard, and I believe he will take many Republican Senators with him. Bye bye Mitch, Lindsey and Susan
RID THE USA OF EVERYTHING TRUMP!!!
Absolutely . This man poses a threat to the nation. Trump is the only emergency I can see
I’m not sure how looking at the 25th amendment is an attempted coup. Just another exaggerated Trump lie. I absolutely think that every state should step up and challenge this bogus, vanity -based, national emergency. This country’s debt is out of control. Any money that can be scraped up should be spent on infrastructure. Roads, bridges, water systems, and finding a way to hold back the rising seas. Not to mention dealing with the increase in heat and drought that’s coming our way.
Take whatever legal steps are necessary to shut down Trump’s vanity wall!
Hillary was not part of the DOJ or any other government agency when she ran for president. Wing nuts on the right are clueless, they get their facts from a pathological liar.
The problem of referring to discussions over the fitness and the possible compromising of the president as an “attempted coup” is that it makes constitutional provisions somehow un-American. If following the constitution is evidence of being a traitor, then America is already dead. Remember, when one goes to work for the government, or serve in the armed forces, one promises to defend the constitution from both foreign and domestic threats, not a president or any other person. The constitution transcends the people who occupy the offices of government that it created. As far as SNL goes, where were all these snowflakes when Obama was the target of their satire? When GWB or Clinton or any of their predecessors suffered the slings and arrows of editorial cartoons everywhere? WTF, right wingers? Is the presidency and the president really that fragile that the destruction of our republic is at stake?
We need investigations in the FBI, DOJ, DNC, Hillary, Obama, and most of Congress. This coup was very widespread, I would say in most of government including many state governments. My question would be who is left to investigate? As far as the emergency at the southern border, congress and the states should leave president Trump alone. If it was up to congress our sovereignty would be gone, and they would let us be over ran by drugs and criminals. Congress has let our country fall to drugs and illegals for long enough, their democrat led coup failed!
Yes. Any and all means should be utilized to stop Trump from wasting taxpayer money on this ridiculous wall.
Impeach the Russian agent in the White House now! Resign immediately Graham and McConnell you are both liars and in collusion with the Russian agent trump! Biggs resign immediately you lying coward and traitor.
Yes, I support lawsuits against Trump’s declaration of a national emergency. It’s an obvious power grab to fill an ill conceived campaign promise. Of. Purse there is work to be done at the border but it needs To based on facts and real data. I wish the President would concentrate on real problems that affect me rather than making up a false crisis in an effort to appease his base.
The only treason sits in the White House.
I support President Trump,you people don’t live with the problems that are being caused! You just hate Trump so you don’t care about what is best for the rest of us “Thank You”.
Any lawsuit against trump is a friend of mine.
Please act to oppose this abuse of questionable power.
If wishes were fishes you democrats would have an ocean full. There is NO collusion according to the FBI. He has done nothing to harm this country except to show us how dirty the deep state is. You people want him to fail so badly you will do anything to stand in his way. Hey countable. Wy don’t you do apoll on that actor that hired 2 black men for 3500 and then claimed he was attacked with a rope and bleach by two white guys saying this is maga country. That poll will never happen because it shows just how far democrats will go
The 25th amendment was added to our Constitution for this exact reason. Anyone who disagrees is in support of tyranny. Get Trump out now.
Yes, I support lawsuits against this trumped up emergency.
