Donald Trump on Sunday made a series of furious claims that the presidential election is being fixed against him by Clinton supporters, the media and even polling place workers. The Republican presidential candidate has been attacking the media ever since a series of women came out to accuse him of sexual assault last week. But his latest mention of 'polling places' on Sunday takes his claims to new heights.
Trump tweeted: 'The election is absolutely being rigged by the dishonest and distorted media pushing Crooked Hillary - but also at many polling places - SAD.'
The outburst followed a series of tweets accusing the media of conspiring against him, including SNL and Alec Baldwin who performed a brutal skit about the second presidential debate.
He tweeted: 'Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me. Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!'
Trump has come under fire from Democrats and moderate Republicans for his theory that the election is 'rigged', with many people saying it could provoke violence on or after election day.
Trump's scorched-earth strategy in the last leg of the elections comes as his poll numbers suffer following a series of sexual assault allegations after the infamous ‘p****gate’ tape emerged.
Trump's running mate Mike Pence tried to clarify that the business tycoon's statements about a 'rigged election' were directed specifically at the media, but Trump discredited his argument shortly after.
Pence also tried to smooth things over in TV interviews saying: 'We will absolutely accept the results of the election'.
But that sentiment was not echoed by Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani who floated the idea that Democrats could cheat on election day, even though he didn't think it would change the result.
'I'm sorry, dead people generally vote for Democrats rather than Republicans,' Giuliani said this morning to CNN's Jake Tapper on 'State of the Union.'
Opponents have criticized Trump on Twitter, calling his claims 'fantastical nonsense' and a 'full-bore assault on democracy'.
On Sunday morning, Trump tweeted: 'Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me. Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!'
Trump hosted SNL in January of this year and said he knew 'how to take a joke' two weeks before the primaries kicked off.
Baldwin, who has won rave reviews over the past two weeks for his performances, reprised his role as Trump and hovered menacingly behind McKinnon while randomly forgetting answers to the debate questions.
When asked whether each candidate's behavior set a good example for children, Baldwin answered: 'No. Next'.
Alex Moffat played debate moderator Anderson Cooper and pressed the question, to which Baldwin answered: 'I love kids. OK, I love them so much I marry them.
'I've been helping kids my whole life. In 1992, I helped a kid named Kevin McAllister find a hotel lobby. Remember the documentary, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.'
The line of questioning then turned to the controversial tape that emerged of Trump just two days before the debate, in which he was heard bragging about being able to grope women without their consent.
'Listen, what I said is nothing compared to what Bill Clinton has done. Okay? He has abused women,' Baldwin said.
'And Martha, Anderson, hold on to your nips and your nuts, because four of these women are here tonight. Four of them.'
McKinnon's Clinton then butted in, taking a histrionic tone when she said: 'Wait, I'm sorry. Who's here?'
'Mistresses? Bill, how could you? Oh, how will I go on with this debate? I'll never be able to remember my facts and figures now. Oh, Donald, no! Get real, I'm made of steel. This is nothing. Hi girls.'
Trump then shot back: 'She is trying to silence these women, but they need to be respected and they need their voices heard.'
When asked about whether the women who have accused Trump also deserve to be heard, Baldwin quickly declared: 'They need to shut the hell up.'
The show also included a parody of Beyonce's Lemonade album, with cast members playing an array of the women surrounding Trump.
Melania, Ivanka, Tiffany, Kellyanne Conway and Omarosa Manigault were all portrayed in the 'Melanianade' skit which flipped the song's infamous 'Becky with the Good Hair' lyric to poke fun at his dependence on them to humanize him.
