Donald Trump Calls SNL A 'Disgrace' And Madonna 'Disgusting'

In his second interview since taking office, President Donald Trump took aim at "Saturday Night Live" and Madonna.

Trump spoke with Fox News's Sean Hannity on Jan. 26 and blasted NBC's "Saturday Night Live" for making fun of his 10-year-old son, Barron, the Daily Mail reported. He also criticized pop icon Madonna for her comments about "blowing up the White House."

"Saturday Night Live" Writer Katie Rich was suspended from the show after tweeting that Barron would become the "country's first homeschool shooter."

The tweet was met with serious backlash, even from social media users who identity themselves as being anti-Trump.  

Trump responded to the tweet, saying his son was a "wonderful, smart, charming kid."

"[A] person from Saturday Night Live was terrible," Donald Trump told Sean Hannity during the interview. "I don't mind some humor but it's terrible. For them to attack, for NBC to attack my 10-year-old's a disgrace. He’s a great boy. And it’s not an easy thing for him. Believe me."

Rich has since apologized for the tweet. Neither the network nor "Saturday Night Live" has condoned her comments, or released an official statement on the matter.

Trump also took aim at actor Alec Baldwin for his impersonations, calling him a "disaster."

"He's terrible on the show," Trump said. 

Trump didn't stop there. He criticized Madonna for participating in a protest against him during a Washington, D.C., march. During the protest, Madonna said she considered "blowing up the White House," the Daily Mail reported.

"Honestly, she's disgusting," the president said. "I think she hurt herself very badly. I think she hurt that whole cause.

Trump also called out congress members who blocked his cabinet confirmations, and leaked information about his "confidential" meetings to the press. The meeting in question had to do with his belief that illegal immigrants cost him the popular vote during the general election.

"I'll tell you what they're obstructionists," Trump said. "I go to a meeting with them that's supposed to be a very quiet meeting. Nobody talking outside of the meeting. They leave the meeting and they have a news conference about what I said.

"They're talking to the cameras about exactly what I said at the meeting, which is fine because I say things that I don't mind going out, because I assume they're going to do that. But the deal was, we wouldn't talk to the press. And they go out and they talk to the press."
