On Saturday, Saturday Night Live presented “Them Trumps” a sketch where the Trump presidency was produced by the makers of Empire.
Kenan Thompson played Darius Trump, who is married to Malika Trump and the father of Darius Jr. and Levanka.
Darius Trump is quickly arrested.
The credits then roll, before Darius Trump is freed because the president cannot be tried while in office.
“There’s only one rule in America: You can’t prosecute a sitting president!” says Darius Trump. “It’s called checks and balances, baby.”
However, Darius Trump is not in the clear for long.
Watch the skit below.
Trump considering withdraw from 68-year-old treaty with Japan: report
President Donald Trump has been privately talking about withdrawing from the postwar defense treaty with Japan, according to three sources familiar with the matter.
Trump is telling confidants the treaty is unfair to the U.S. because it promises to help if Japan was ever attacked, but doesn't require Japan to come to America's defense, the sources told Bloomberg.
So far, the president hasn't taken any step toward pulling out of the treaty, which was signed in 1951, and administration officials insist that move would be highly unlikely.
Rep. Ted Lieu: Impeachment is coming — and so is a Democratic president
Donald Trump recently called “impeachment” a “dirty, filthy, disgusting word,” but his continued stonewalling of legitimate congressional oversight requests are moving more and more House Democrats to embrace that “filthy” concept. That was the very point made by Rep. Ted Lieu of California, a progressive Democrat who sits on the House Judiciary Committee during our recent conversation on “Salon Talks.” That committee would be the starting point for an actual impeachment inquiry of the president.
US kicks off Mideast plan, with Palestinians boycotting
After a wait of two and a half years, the US administration is launching its Middle East peace plan Tuesday -- with an economic initiative that the Palestinians are boycotting.
For this most unconventional of US presidents, Donald Trump's Middle East peace-making bid is unlike decades of previous US attempts.
There is no talk of land swaps, a Palestinian state or other political issues that have vexed diplomats for decades.
The Trump administration says it will get to the political issues later.
