#Donald Trump is not one to shy away from voicing his frustrations [VIDEO] on social media, and his latest tweetstorm was no exception. As critics continue to pile on the president, Trump direct his latest attack on the hosts of #Late Night TV shows.

Trump on late night

It's no secret that Donald Trump and the majority of the left-leaning celebrities in Hollywood don't see eye to eye. From the moment the former host of "The Apprentice" kicked off his campaign by labeling illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers," it was only a matter of time before actors, musicians, producers, directors, and more lashed out.

Ever since his upset election win over Hillary Clinton last November, Trump's feud with Hollywood has only increased, which has been evident during multiple award shows like the Academy Awards and the Emmy's. In addition, late night hosts have had a field day with the drama and scandals surrounding the current administration, with names like Stephen Colbert and #Jimmy Kimmel ripping into the president on a daily basis, and others like Bill Maher doing his routine over the weekend. As seen during a pair of tweets on October 7, the president appears to have had enough [VIDEO]with being the butt of a joke.

Taking to his Twitter account on Saturday morning, Donald Trump directed his anger at attacking late night TV hosts for making fun of him and the Republican Party.

"Late Night host are dealing with the Democrats for their very 'unfunny' & repetitive material, always anti-Trump!," the president tweeted, before asking "Should we get Equal Time?"

In a follow-up tweet, Donald Trump continued his rant. "More and more people are suggesting that Republicans (and me) should be given Equal Time on T.V. when you look at the one-sided coverage?" Trump added.

Twitter reacts

As expected, it didn't take long for critics of the president to fire back in response to his attack on late night TV. "He spouts provable lies every single or day, and you cheer. It is unreal. You have been conned by a cheap snake oil salesman," one tweet read.

"I don't seem to recall President Obama asking for equal time when comedians poked fun at him..." another tweet pointed out.

"It's call "freedom of the press". Please read the First Amendment. They can do as they choose," another Twitter user added.

"Dude can you please give America one day without a temper tantrum about the media?" Calvin Stowell posted. "Excellent point Mr. President! You should quit that boring job - I'll let you have my show ALL to yourself," talk show host Jimmy Kimmel responded. The backlash continued as it showed the opposition to the commander in chief wasn't going to end anytime soon.
