Donald Trump SNL Monologue for Nov 7

Donald Trump hosted Saturday Night Live late night and delivered the biggest ratings the show has seen since 2011. During his monologue Trump shared the stage with two other Trumps: Taran Killam and Darrell Hammond. He praised their impersonations of him, but noted that neither actor had his good looks. At that point the heckling started, which was really a jab at the the groups that threatened Lorne Michaels for allowing Trump to host the show.

From off stage someone yelled, "You're a racist!" Trump muttered that he knew this was going to happen and looked to see who it was. The camera cut off stage to Larry David who then said, "Trump's a racist!!! "What are you doing, Larry? Trump asked. Larry shrugged, and said, "I heard that if I yelled that they'd give me five thousand dollars...so I had to do it." "As a businessman, I can fully respect that.," Trump replied. After the broadcast the group Deport Racism tweeted that it would send Larry the $5,000.

Trump seemed quite at ease on the stage and seemed to be having a great time doing the show. His detractors said he did a terrible job and his supporters said he killed it. The truth is he did much better than many major actors and celebrities who have hosted. It's a tough gig and Trump took plenty of jokes at his expense in stride, while seeming like a good sport and being fully in on the joke. Take a look:
