41 years in, Saturday Night Live has its routine down pat, including a reel of promos aired midweek leading up to each Saturday's episode. Yesterday, a video was uploaded to SNL's YouTube channel which included 8 clips, a little more than usual, because it was the wrong file and included ones that were supposed to be cut. It was NBC's biggest "oopsie" since inviting Trump to host SNL after cutting ties with Miss Universe over his racist comments, if it was even an "oopsie" at all.
That clip was salvaged via Vine, in which Trump calls rival Ben Carson "a complete and total loser."
"I discovered when I was in grade school that those tactics really are for grade school. And I've gone far beyond that now," Carson told CNN, in the only mature thing he's ever said.
The ads that are making it to television are pretty cheesy and toothless. The only joke Trump delivers that could be perceived as self-deprecating or self-aware is using his catchphrase, "It's going to be yuuuuuuge." Tune in on Saturday to see America's Favorite Bigot get 90 minutes of free airtime. It's going to be an interesting ride.
