Donald Trump Hosting “Saturday Night Live” On November 7
Donald Trump will host “Saturday Night Live” on November 7, NBC announced on Tuesday. This marks the second time that the Republican presidential candidate has hosted “SNL.” The appearance of the GOP frontrunner comes almost one year ahead of the presidential election.
Over the years, Trump has been mocked and impersonated a lot on “SNL,” most notably by Darrell Hammond, who the real Trump “confronted” when he hosted the show back in April 2004. Many past sketches have poked fun of Trump as the host of “Celebrity Apprentice,” as well as his feuds with others, including Rosie O’Donnell.
These days, cast member Taran Killam has been doing his impression of the real estate mogul turned politician. On the October 3 show, “SNL” kicked off with a message from Trump (Killam) and his wife Melania (played by Cecily Strong) in which the Republican candidate was teased for, among other things, his hair and immigration policies.
For his part, Trump took it in stride, tweeting, “@TaranKillam plays a way better fake @realDonaldTrump than a real @HillarlyClinton plays herself.” Trump was referring, of course, to Clinton’s appearance in a sketch on that same show. As Gossip Cop reported, Clinton appeared in a skit as a bartender named Val, who gave advice to “Hillary Clinton” (played by Kate McKinnon). In the bit that mostly poked fun of Clinton not being relatable, the real Mrs. Clinton also took a shot at the GOP candidate with a mocking impression of Trump.
