Even as another year at the media circus that is the Trump White House draws to a close, the 45th President of the United States is determined to go out swinging, or whinging if you prefer.

Even as special prosecutor and former director of the FBI Robert Mueller closes in on all the alleged shady dealings done by the Donald's election campaign managers, with the investigation speculated to eventually lead to skeletons tumbling out of the Trump family closet, POTUS 45 is declaring his innocence to all and sundry and alleging that there's an orchestrated campaign against him.

The latest outlet for Trump's fury is the latest episode of long-running satire show Saturday Night Live, which has been lauded for its constant, fearless mocking of the American commander-in-chief. Apart from asserting that the cult variety show is a 'Democrat spin machine', he also slammed the coverage of 'biased' media groups like NBC, and questioned the legality.

Among the onslaught of responses this tweet got was a short and tart response from former supermodel and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen, who is famous for her humour and sheer chutzpah as well as being an unassailable critic of the Trump administration. Not one to mince words, Teigen simply responded to Trump's tirade with three little words, "ok, career criminal", her response garnering over 26,000 'loves' in less than a day.

Keen to join in the fun other Twitter users soon chimed in, most of them amused as well as bemused with Trump referring to a skit comedy show as "media coverage". The final SNL show of the year featured Matt Damon as its host, Alec Baldwin returning in his Trump avatar, Ben Stiller as recently convicted attorney (also former Trump fixer) Michael Cohen, and Robert De Niro playing Mueller.
