Candidate calls rival a “complete and total loser” in first look at Saturday’s episode
In the first look at Donald Trump’s “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig on Nov. 7, the GOP presidential hopeful calls his rival Ben Carson “a complete and total loser.”
Trump appears in the promos alongside “SNL” cast member Cecily Strong, who says that because of equal time rules, Trump can only speak for four seconds in the teaser, which he uses to bash Carson.
In another clip, Strong and Sasheer Zamata lament the lack of real men on the “SNL” set. Enter Trump, sporting some Elvis Presley-style sunglasses.
Hispanic groups have been vocal opponents about Trump’s appearance on the NBC show, after the Republican made inflammatory comments about Mexican immigrants during his presidential campaign announcement speech.
The National Hispanic Media Coalition and over a dozen other Latino organizations will gather outside the “Saturday Night Live” studio on Wednesday to protest Trump hosting the show, in addition to delivering petitions reportedly with over 460,000 signatures supporting Trump’s removal as host.
