NBC announced that Donald Trump is scheduled to host SNL Nov. 7 and some say has a “latino problem” because there are “only” two hispanic cast members in it’s 41-year-old history.
Ever occur to you interlopers that maybe hispanics just haven’t been funny enough to be on this show? Have you ever stumbled across, then sat and watched a Spanish-language “comedy” on some cable channel?
I rest my case, Senor Bumblebee (Whom SNL actually used to mock). But now, in the land of PC and anti-First Amendment, Latino Groups are TELLING NBC they should not have Donald Trump as the host of Saturday Night Live.
Hey guys, screwed up your own country and now here to screw ours up? I got bad news for you, it ain’t gonna work and you’re starting to see the backlash that should have started 20 years ago. Better late than never, I guess.
The National Hispanic Leadership Agenda, an umbrella group representing 40 of the largest Latino organizations in the nation, including the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), the Mexican American Legal Defense & Educational Fund (MALDEF) and the L.A.-based National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC), is preparing to send a letter to NBC today urging the network to reconsider the controversial booking, according to multiple people involved with the nonprofit.
In the meantime, Alex Nogales, president of the NHMC, told us he’s trying to get longtime SNL producer Lorne Michaels on the phone in order to express the Latino community’s frustration over the Trump booking. “They told me he was not going to talk,” Nogales said.
Many Latinos were insulted when the leading Republican presidential candidate said in June that Mexican immigrants are criminals and rapists. Soon after, NBC said in a statement that it was “ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.”
“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values,” the network said.
Also weighing in heavily is comedian George Lopez, who also doesn’t think Trump should be hosting SNL:
‘Cept there’s one problem George: Have you ever insisted to comedy club owners / bookers that other hispanics aren’t on the bill when you were performing in comedy clubs because they may steal your hispanic thunder?
Yes, you have George. You’re a hypocrite.
These “Latino Groups” are a bunch of sorry-asses and if America sucks then just get the hell out so millions of other brown people can risk their lives to get to this kick-ass place.
There was a time when there wasn’t a chance in hell I’d vote for Trump. I’m thinking about it now. Seriously.
