Despite some attempts to keep him off the air, Donald Trump hosted Saturday Night Live on November 7. And, according to the candidate’s Twitter account, it was quite the success.
Trump wasted no time in complimenting himself and insulting others. He began his monologue by saying that he’s one of the many greats who has previously hosted the show, and then immediately turned towards his longtime feud with Rosie O’Donnell: “She said some things about me that were hurtful and untrue. I said some things about her that were mean, but completely accurate.”
His monologue was interrupted when Larry David, who returned to the show for the second time this season to play Bernie Sanders, yelled “Trump’s a racist” from offstage. The scripted joke referred to the “Dump Trump” protesters who offered $5,000 to anyone who heckled the billionaire candidate.
One sketch portrayed the White House two years into a Trump presidency. All of his promises had come to fruition: ISIS was completely eliminated, Putin pulled out of the Ukraine, and the economy was so prosperous that China was borrowing money from the U.S.. The Mexican president appeared in the scene to pay Trump for the wall built on the U.S.-Mexico border, and even gave him extra as he said, “consider it an apology for doubting you.” The only negative effect of Trump in the White House was that the American people were “sick of winning.”
Trump appeared on Fox and Friends on Sunday morning to discuss his appearance on the show as well as the Dump Trump protestors. He said that “the whole thing with Hispanics” had been overblown and that very few protesters were outside, adding that they were all gone by the time the show started: “You know why? You know what happened, they went home to watch the show.”
Probably because they didn’t want to miss his killer “Hotline Bling” moves:
