Funny WATCH: Highlights from 'SNL' Hosted by Donald Trump
Donald Trump took center stage on “Saturday Night Live” last night.
Though it came up short on laughs, the show went smoothly after weeks of anticipation and despite protests from Latino groups calling for NBC to “Dump Trump.”
The outspoken billionaire appeared onstage next to two seasoned “SNL” dopplegangers, envisioned a Trump White House where America’s greatness reaches absurd levels, and busted some incredible dance moves.
Here are some of the highlights:
In the opening monologue, Trump was interrupted by “Seinfeld” creator and Bernie Sanders alter-ego Larry David, who shouted “Trump’s a racist!”
He then shrugged, "I heard if I yelled that they'd give me $5,000," referring to a Los Angeles-based activist group's "bounty" on disrupting the appearance. (Update: The group says David will get the money.)
“As a businessman, I can fully respect that,” Trump said.
The first sketch after the monologue showed a portrait of the White House two years into a Donald Trump administration.
In this reality, Syrian refugees are working in a Trump casino in Damascus, Mexico pays to build a border wall, and Interior Secretary Ivanka Trump (making a surprise cameo) has decked out the Washington Monument in gold-mirrored glass.
Trump apologetically sat out of the next sketch, but his notorious “hate tweets” were front and center, throwing cast members off their game as they struggled through a rough sketch.
Finally, in what was probably the most enduring moment of the show, Trump cameoed in a parody of rapper Drake's hit music video, “Hotline Bling.”
Some outlets are already calling Trump’s moves the GIF of the year.
