Donald Trump: Never Going Back On ‘SNL’ (VIDEO)
Donald Trump, who has hosted “Saturday Night Live” twice and been the subject of numerous sketches, says he’s never returning to the sketch comedy show. The GOP presidential candidate reveals he was asked to appear again on “SNL,” but he’s “not interested.” See the video below.
Trump sat down with “Extra” on Friday and when asked about Alec Baldwin’s impression of him, the Republican presidential nominee said, “I think I’m a much nicer guy than he’s portraying. He’s portraying someone who’s very mean and nasty, and I’m not mean and nasty.” “It’s an inaccurate portrayal of me,” added Trump. And when questioned about appearing again to “SNL,” he replied, “They want me to go back,” but he’s “not interested” in returning because they been “making me out to be a very mean, bad kind of a guy and that’s not me.”
The GOP candidate first hosted “Saturday Night Live” in 2004 and, as Gossip Cop reported, returned in November 2015. As we noted then, Trump said in his “SNL” monologue last year, “I’m a nice guy. I don’t hold grudges,” before adding, “like Rosie O’Donnell.” Also during his last stint, Trump mean tweeted about the “SNL” cast member during a live sketch. In addition to tweeting, “Kate McKinnon was born stupid,” he also wrote during the skit, “An extremely credible source just told me that Kenan Thompson’s birth certificate is a fraud,” before adding in a subsequent message, “Sorry folks, but add a ‘y’ to ‘Kenan’ and you get ‘Kenyan.'”
Of course, Trump’s current beef with “Saturday Night Live” is centered around Baldwin’s impression. The actor has opened all four of this season’s shows by mimicking Trump in the three presidential debates against Hillary Clinton, as well as mocking his apology for the hot mic incident with Billy Bush.
As for the real Trump, he tells “Extra” he hasn’t spoken to Bush since the video was leaked, but “I have always liked Billy… I always found Billy to be a good guy.” Check out the video below of Trump saying he’s not returning anymore to “Saturday Night Live.”
