Republican candidate slams 'Saturday Night Live' over 'hit job' sketch

Donald Trump has hit out at Saturday Night Live and Alec Baldwin’s impersonation of him on the US comedy show.

The Republican candidate seeking to be US President, who has been met with increased criticism over the past week for inappropriate comments made about women and claims of sexual assault, took to Twitter following this weekend’s episode to describe a sketch on the long-running NBC show as a “hit job on me”.

“Time to retire the boring and unfunny show,” Trump tweeted. “Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!”
