The liberal comedy show “Saturday Night Live” has incessantly attacked President Donald Trump, his family and members of his administration, but the anti-Trump tactics may have backfired.
In fact, a Morning Consult poll recently revealed that a significant plurality of “SNL” viewers either never enjoyed the show’s blatant attacks on the U.S. president or have grown tired of them, even if they enjoyed the skits in the beginning.
Nineteen percent of poll participants said they now “would like ‘SNL’ to focus on something else,” while another 16 percent said they have “not enjoyed the impersonations of the members of President Trump’s administration,” meaning that 35 percent of the poll’s total respondents were in favor of “SNL” retiring the anti-Trump skits.
In comparison, only 33 percent of poll participants said they “would like to see more” of the show’s skits about the president, while 31 percent said they had “no opinion” on the matter.
Although the comedy show has enjoyed six year-high ratings lately, the executives should take into consideration the large number of viewers who were either no longer interested or were never interested in watching Trump be made fun of on national television.
Actor Alec Baldwin has played the role of Trump during the show’s skits, and has often portrayed Trump as a know-nothing president.
Trump obviously hasn’t been pleased with the way the liberal comedy show has portrayed him, and he has even taken to Twitter to share his comments about the show.
“I watched parts of @nbcsnl Saturday Night Live last night,” he tweeted in November. “It is a totally one-sided, biased show — nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?”

Unfortunately, liberals and fans of the anti-Trump skit likely won’t be going away any time soon, and as long as they’re thirsty for attacks on the president with whom they disagree politically, the show will likely continue the act.
