Last Night’s SNL Score: Activists 201, Donald Trump 9,000,000
Approximately 200 people showed up to protest Donald Trump’s appearance on Saturday Night Live last night. The protesters were upset that NBC was willing to have a show with Trump, when earlier in the year they cut ties with Trump due to his strong stance against illegal immigration. In addition to the 200 people outside, comedian Larry David heckled Trump during his monologue, stating it was so he could collect the $5000 “bounty” activists had posted for doing so.
Their protests, despite making front-page stories on many leftist websites this morning, mostly went ignored by American in general. According to Nielsen’s ratings system, about 9,000,000 people watched the show — its biggest ratings in years.
Did you watch the episode (if you didn’t, you can catch it here)? What did you think? What was your favorite sketch?
For that matter, what’s your favorite political SNL sketch ever? For me, it was the Hillary Clinton/Sarah Palin open in 2008. That was pure brilliance.
