Former President Trump asked the Justice Department to look into “Saturday Night Live” while he was in office, The Daily Beast reported Tuesday.

Two sources told the news outlet that Trump talked to advisers and lawyers in 2019 about what the Justice Department, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the courts could do to look into late-night comedy shows such as “SNL.”

“It was more annoying than alarming, to be honest with you,” one source told The Daily Beast.

Trump often lashed out at the NBC sketch comedy show for its skits about him, one time tweeting: “It’s truly incredible that shows like Saturday Night Live, not funny/no talent, can spend all of their time knocking the same person (me), over & over, without so much of a mention of ‘the other side.’”

“Like an advertisement without consequences. Same with Late Night Shows. Should Federal Election Commission and/or FCC look into this?” Trump said on Twitter.

Trump was reportedly informed that no legal action could be taken against the show, but was told someone would “look into it” even though they never did, according to one source who spoke to The Daily Beast.

A representative from NBC Universal said they had no comment on the report.

The Hill has reached out to the Justice Department and Trump’s spokesperson for comment.

Exclusive: Former President Trump Sends Message to the Cuban People

Former President Donald Trump spoke about the historical moment that Cuba is experiencing and the policy of the United States towards the island, after thousands of people took to the streets demanding freedom.

In an exclusive interview with Telemundo 51’s Marilys Llanos, the former president sent a message to the Cuban people and referred to what he had done for the island during his time in the White House.

“Did you intend to invade Cuba during your tenure? Did you consider doing it in Venezuela?” asked Llanos.

During his administration, the U.S. government tightened sanctions against the Cuban government, virtually eliminating the possibility of sending remittances to the island.

In the interview, Trump also harshly criticized the response of President Joe Biden’s administration to the crisis.

“Had the election been won by me, the Cuban crisis may have been over by now because they were getting ready to give it up, meaning the so-called leadership in Cuba,” Trump said. “I think they just couldn’t have gone on for much longer, because I did sanctions, I did many other things as you know, and now they feel emboldened. A lot of the work that we did for Cuba and freedom for the people is going to be swept under the table by the Biden administration.”

DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said Haitian and Cuban migrants and asylum-seekers who try to come to the U.S. by boat will not be allowed to enter the country. Even if asylum-seekers establish fear of persecution, they will be resettled in third countries, Mayorkas said.
