‘SNL’ Donald Trump Videos: ‘Racists For Trumps’ Ad Gets 33,000 Views [Video]
SNL went to town on Donald Trump and the political happenings during the time SNL wasn’t airing shows. The below “Voters For Trump Ad – SNL” has swelled to nearly 33,000 views on the SNL YouTube channel alone within hours.
The fake Trump ad was uploaded to YouTube on March 6, and is winning raves for the funny way in which the ad initially displayed Trump supporters doing everyday things, like ironing clothing or painting. However, as the “Racists for Trump” ad unfurls, items of racism unfurl, as well. One man reveals a Swastika, the Nazi symbol of hate, when he raises his arm. Another Trump supporter lifts the items of white clothing that she is ironing, and it turns out to be a Ku Klux Klan robe. The hard-working painter who leans against a house as he is painting is revealed to have painted a “White Power” phrase on the side of the home.
The SNL description gives light to the actors who starred in the humorous and controversial Trump mock ad.
“Americans (Taran Killam, Vanessa Bayer, Bobby Moynihan, Aidy Bryant, Beck Bennett, Kyle Mooney) offer insight into why they’ll be voting for Donald Trump.”
The ad was shown after the even more popular “CNN Election Center Cold Open – SNL” video, as seen below.
That SNL video, also uploaded to YouTube on March 6, has already gotten more than 42,000 views. CNN’s Jake Tapper was played by Beck Bennett, who called Jake a handsome figure by CNN standards. The SNL skit took on the fallout from Super Tuesday as the Donald was once again played by Trump’s SNL alter-ego, actor Darrell Hammond. Trump called the SNL version of Chris Christie, the governor of New Jersey, a rotund fellow who needed to get out of Trump’s face and back on a plane. For his part, the governor in the SNL sketch acted as if he were being hazed, and kept asking for more insults.
Meanwhile Hillary Clinton’s SNL counterpart, once again portrayed by Kate McKinnon, borrowed a line from a famous song as Kate welcomed all the new supporters of Clinton. Since there were clowns to the left of her and jokers to the right, Hillary nearly sang, she knew that many people were stuck in the middle with Clinton.
Ted Cruz was taken on by Taran Killam, whose huge face appearing on the screen once again scared Tapper, even though he sent out a warning that Cruz’s face would soon appear on TV.
Mitt Romney was played by Jason Sudeikis, who returned to SNL to portray Mitt — going up against Trump — and even though Mitt criticized Trump a-plenty in the SNL sketch, Romney admitted that he still wanted to be Trump’s running mate.
In spite of the popularity of SNL‘s cold open video, and its quips about Trump running his campaign like Germany in the 1930s, as comedian Louis C.K. called it, the “Racists For Trump” SNL ad is holding its own.
“What a great, great night. I really am running the best campaign, aren’t I? The media is saying they haven’t seen anything like this, not since Germany in the 1930s. I mean everyone loves me: racists, ugly racists, people who didn’t know they were racists.”
The fake Trump ad and other skits from Saturday Night Live are causing so much buzz that Facebook reports that SNL is a trending topic that plenty of folks are talking about on Sunday.
As seen in the above photo, the popular Republican presidential candidate who is Trump didn’t win any praise from the child with a tall blonde Mohawk that Trump pulled from the crowd. Trump was speaking at a campaign rally in New Orleans, on Friday, March 4.
