Trump ‘SNL’ Promos Released
Donald Trump is coming to Saturday Night Live. The comedy show recently released the promos for the controversial episode.
Over the past few weeks, several Hispanic groups have called on SNL to drop Trump. The network has refused to budge and will push forward with Trump’s episode.
The Hill reports:
In one of the spots, cast member Cecily Strong declares, “Due to FCC regulations, Trump can only appear in this promo for less than four seconds. Isn’t that right?”
“That’s correct, Cecily. I’ll be hosting ‘Saturday Night Li—,” Trump says to the camera before Strong, equipped with a stopwatch, yells, “Time!”
In another promo citing the equal time rules, Trump uses the few moments to take a shot at a fellow Republican White House hopeful, telling the camera, “So let me just say this: Ben Carson is a complete and total loser!”
The real estate mogul appears alongside Strong, who headlined last year’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington, in another ad promoting the upcoming show.
“To make things extra fun, Donald has promised he’s not going to brag or say he’s the best at anything. Right, Donald?” Strong asks with a grin.
“That’s right, Cecily. And I’m going to do the best job anyone’s ever done not saying it,” Trump replies emphatically.
“What can I say? I’m the absolute best. What can I say?” the former “Celebrity Apprentice” host adds.
Trump also sports some serious shades in another promo.
“I wish there were some real men around here, you know?” Strong says to castmate Sasheer Zamata.
As seductive music plays, Trump saunters into the camera’s view wearing sunglasses and says, “Hi, ladies.”
