Trump bashes 'rigged' election (and Saturday Night Live)

Donald Trump is carrying his newly aggressive campaign style to Twitter, continuing to argue Sunday that Hillary Clinton, the media, and the political establishment are conspiring to defeat him.

"Election is being rigged by the media, in a coordinated effort with the Clinton campaign, by putting stories that never happened into news!" Trump tweeted Sunday.

Less than a week after a parade of women came forward to accuse the candidate of inappropriate sexual advances, Trump continued to question the motives of the accusers and the media. He also appeared to reference reports of a new Washington Post-ABC News poll showing him only four points behind Clinton.

"Polls close," Trump said in another tweet, "but can you believe I lost large numbers of women voters based on made up events THAT NEVER HAPPENED. Media rigging election!"

Another poll, from NBC News and The Wall Street Journal, shows Clinton ahead by 11 points.

Trump's Sunday morning tweet storm included a critique of NBC's Saturday Night Live and its new Trump impersonator, Alec Baldwin.

"Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me," the candidate tweeted. "Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks."

For good measure, Trump added: "Media rigging election!"
