Hosts SNL

TV Appearance

Trump hosts SNL for the second time — the first time was in 2004. During the show’s opening monologue someone is heard screaming ‘Trump is a racist!’ The heckler turns out to be Larry David, who plays also Bernie Sanders in various skits. Referring to a Latino group that had offered anyone in the audience money to yell out, David says:

I heard if I yelled that they’d give me $5,000.


As a businessman I can respect that.

Other sketches includ a fast forward to a world in which Trump has become president and ‘made America great again’ and a remake of Drake’s Hotline Bling video, with new lyrics defending the rapper’s dancing, and Trump dancing as the ‘tax guy.’
