Donald Trump is gearing up to host “Saturday Night Live” on Saturday (Nov. 7) and so far, it looks like the Republican presidential candidate is pretty confident he’ll deliver the comedic goods.
According to Mashable, Trump will meet with Lorne Michaels later this week to prepare for the highly publicized appearance. “Am I nervous? Not too nervous,” Trump says. “But we’ll do a good job and we’ll have a fantastic show. We’re all gonna have a lot of fun.”
A reporter soon requested the candidate’s best Jeb Bush impersonation but Trump declined by saying, “No, I don’t want to do that. I don’t like showing a person sleeping at a podium.”
While Trump’s upcoming “Saturday Night Live” appearance will probably deliver the ratings for the network, not everyone is happy the controversial figure will get the extra attention NBC is granting him
Due to the disparaging remarks he made regarding Mexican immigrants earlier in the year, LA Weekly is reporting on a demonstration that is being planned in New York ahead of Trump’s gig as host.
Trump voiced his reaction at a press conference on Tuesday (Nov. 3) set up to promote the release of his new book — aptly titled “Crippled America” — and simply put, he believes any publicity will be good for the network.
“I think they should demonstrate,” Trump says. “Ratings will go even higher.”
