Did Donald Trump Threaten Alec Baldwin and His Family?

There's little question that Donald Trump was threatening the First Amendment when he suggested that NBC should face "retribution" for airing a Saturday Night Live skit that was critical of him. But Alec Baldwin, who starred in the skit, suggested that the threat might have been even more sinister than that. Read on for details.

Alec Baldwin questioned whether President Trump’s tweet about his “Saturday Night Live” skit in which he portrayed the commander-in-chief amounts to a threat to him and his family.

“I wonder if a sitting President exhorting his followers that my role in a TV comedy qualifies me as an enemy of the people constitutes a threat to my safety and that of my family?,” Baldwin wrote on Twitter late Sunday.

His comments came hours after Trump took to Twitter to rail about Baldwin’s performance on Saturday night’s show, in which he joked about the president’s “fake” emergency to build a border wall.

The president asked why shows like “Saturday Night Live” can take shots at him without “retribution.”

“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!,” the president said.
