‘SNL’ obliterated Donald Trump with a very brutal ‘campaign ad’ that highlighted just some of the people who really support the presidential candidate: racists. Click through to watch the hilarious sketch!
Oh, Donald Trump is not going to be happy about this one! The GOP frontrunner was slammed in a scathing SNL video that masqueraded as a campaign ad. The twist? Every person supporting Trump was a huge bigot! Click through to watch SNL‘s takedown!
SNL is not messing around! Their video starts out looking suspiciously like a normal campaign ad, with a host of mild-mannered white people praising Trump and his policies. They speak about why they’re going to vote for the divisive GOP candidate: he’s a winner, he’s authentic, he creates jobs, he’s the outsider that Washington needs. He can make this country great again!
So why such a complimentary lift for Trump? Um, there’s actually a few problems with their endorsements. The people who love Trump so much are huge racists! One man (Taran Killam) is wearing a Nazi swastika band on his arm. Uh oh! The housewife (Vanessa Bayer) ironing is actually getting the wrinkles out of her KKK hood! The house painter (Bobby Moynihan) is tagging someone’s home with “White Power”! The office worker (Aidy Bryant) printing out spreadsheets is devising a plan to get rid of Muslims! The guy stoking his fireplace (Beck Bennett) is burning books! And the lumberjack (Kyle Mooney) carry wood is helping some KKK members build a burning cross!
Holy moly, this is intense! The ad is actually an endorsement from “Racists for Trump.” Though Trump has been widely accused of racism after slamming minority groups again and again — like calling for a ban of Muslims from the United States and claiming that undocumented Latino immigrants are murders and racists. It’s interesting that SNL decided to tackle this, though, seeing as they had him host very recently!
