In An Irrational Conspiracy Rant, Trump Rails Against "Saturday Night Live."

While attacking a report in The Daily Beast on Tuesday, Donald Trump railed against "Saturday Night Live" and actor Alec Baldwin, while also fueling an insane conspiracy theory.

According to the website, Trump attempted to sic federal agencies, including the Justice Department, on late-night comedians who made fun of him. Trump called the story "total Fake News," but added, "Baldwin has no talent, certainly when it comes to imitating me."

Trump went on to say that late-night comedy was an "illegal campaign contribution" to the Democrats.

But it was at the end of his message that Trump went off the rails. Trump ended his statement with "2024 or before!" a reference to a conspiracy theory that claims he will overthrow the elected government and take office again before the next election in 2024.

Over the report, late-night host Jimmy Kimmel referred to Trump as "President Snowflake," while Stephen Colbert of "The Late Show" called Trump's alleged actions "dangerous, disturbing, and un-American."

Critics reacted similarly on Twitter:

Donald Trump reportedly tried to pressure the Department of Justice to stop Saturday Night Live from mocking him, which sounds ridiculous, but it is yet another example of his attempt to use all of the federal government's powers for his personal benefit.https://t.co/dPeznRfLIg — Noah Bookbinder (@NoahBookbinder) June 22, 2021

I love how Trump screams that @swin24 and @arawnsley's SNL story is "Fake News" before saying he thinks the DoJ should look into the "100% one-sided shows." — Justin Baragona (@justinbaragona) June 22, 2021

Is this the QAnon conspiracy theory that Trump is planning a "Storm" day of reckoning when thousands of deep state cabal members will be arrested and he will return to power? pic.twitter.com/uTJuDz66z3 — Michael Shermer (@michaelshermer) June 23, 2021

“2024 or before,” when exactly do we say Trump is planning another coup? https://t.co/y73HwCScse — Michael Leone (@MichaelFromIL) June 22, 2021
