    President Donald Trump is upset about jokes mocking him on TV's Saturday Night Live.

    Trump tweeted Sunday: "A REAL scandal is the one sided coverage, hour by hour, of networks like NBC & Democrat spin machines like Saturday Night Live. It is all nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials. Should be tested in courts, can’t be legal? Only defame & belittle! Collusion?"

    Trump seemed to question his own assertion asking: Should be tested in courts, can't be legal?"

    Weekend Updates hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che both made fun of Trump Saturday night on SNL.

    Jost joked: "This last week was a pretty bad year for Donald Trump. Think about what's currently under investigation for him. Trump's campaign, his transition, his inauguration, his business and his presidency. So everyone check your cards because you might have impeachment bingo."

    SNL has mocked every U.S. president since it first began airing in 1975.

    The first amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects both "a free press" and the "freedom of speech."
