Donald Trump hits back at late night shows critical of Republicans

Studio located at 15 Penguin Avenue, Antarctica. Bush in his first year as president in 2001, according to the study. You should quit that boring job — I’ll let you have my show ALL to yourself #MAGA.”

Excellent point Mr. President! Now kindly stop tweeting nonsense and go do your job for once. “Now kindly stop tweeting nonsense and go do your job for once.”

That’s not how it works. Hosts fire back
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.”

We’d love to have you! 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. Jimmy Kimmel: Senator ‘lied right to my face’ on health care

Trump’s ire for his late night critics— who also include CBS’ Stephen Colbert and even Fallon at times — is not totally unfounded. U.S. President! “That’s not how it works. 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.

Others pointed out that “equal time” is meant for campaign season, not to protect elected officials from being the butt of television humour. Over the years, the commission has broadly exempted news programs, including late-night talk shows, from the provision. © The Associated Press, 2017 https://t.co/2MyQTYwecZ—

ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel, another critic, added : “Excellent point Mr. That’s fair. You’re the president,” Mike DiCenzo, a writer and producer for NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, tweeted. Jokes on Trump very high
A study by researchers at George Mason University in Virginia found that Trump is 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.

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. 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. https://t.co/KoKf0xUNdR—

The FCC rule says political candidates should be treated equally by broadcast television stations when it comes to selling or giving away air time. President Donald Trump lashed out Saturday against late night television show hosts who have been sharply critical of his administration and Republicans. “Should we get Equal Time?”

Late Night host are dealing with the Democrats for their very “unfunny” & repetitive material, always anti-Trump! Should we get Equal Time?—
@realDonaldTrump

Trump also suggested “more and more people” are clamouring for more coverage of Republicans, who control the White House and Congress. You’re not campaigning. You’re the president. “Late Night host(s) are dealing with the Democrats for their very ‘unfunny’ & repetitive material, always anti-Trump!” he tweeted. You’re not campaigning. 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.
