Donald Trump SNL Promos Just as ‘Yuge’ and Hateful As You’d Expect
Whatever your politics, there’s little denying that Donald Trump will deliver the spectacle to SNL this weekend, hosting alongside musical guest Sia. Following a short break, the first promos of Trump’s SNL return have arrived, and The Donald comes out swinging at his opponents just as absurdly as you imagined.
Paired with poor Cecily Strong, Trump’s SNL previews repeatedly play on the fact that FCC regulations only allow four seconds of the Republican presidential candidate per promo. Sasheer Zamata and Jay Pharoah get the rare opportunity to come out and play as well, though Trump can’t resist taking a swipe at fellow candidate Ben Carson, calling him “a complete and total loser.”
UPDATE: NBC swiftly pulled the promos, replacing them with an edited version dropping the Ben Carson comments, among others. A spokesperson claimed “accidentally” posting “not for air” promos.
However disastrously said gasbag goes down in flames, SNL should rebound nicely over the coming weeks, following on November 14 with Hunger Games star Elizabeth Banks and musical guest Disclosure. November 21 will prove even bigger, as True Detective alum Matthew McConaughey brings his best flat circle to the stage, alongside the one and only Adele.
In the meantime, you can check out Trump’s SNL spot above, and start making the popcorn. Something tells us you’re gonna need it.
