Stop Donald Trump from Hosting Saturday Night Live

Donald Trump's racist, misogynist, and anti-immigrant rhetoric shouldn’t have a place in our mainstream society. Even his fellow Republicans have called him out on for his outrageous comments and actions. NBC however seems to think otherwise, rewarding Trump’s behavior by letting him host Saturday Night Live.

After Trump made his racist and anti-immigrant comments at his presidential campaign launch, NBC originally cut off all ties with him. They released this statement: "At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump." NBC’s most recent move shows the only thing NBC values is ratings.

NBC must take a clear stand and show they will not reward Trump’s outrageous and offensive behavior by letting him host an iconic show like SNL. If respect and dignity for all people is truly a value held by NBC, they will dump Trump as an SNL host.

SNL is one of the most popular late-night sketch comedy shows of all time. Putting Trump on SNL legitimizes him and his views as mainstream. From calling Mexican immigrants "rapists" to his inexcusable treatment of women, Trump has brought incivility and a circus side-show to the presidential race. It is time to take away the spotlight.

We demand that Donald Trump is dropped as a guest host for SNL. There are plenty of great and talented people who can host who have not used hatred and lies to get attention. Blatant racism, sexism, and hostility towards immigrants are and will never be a laughing matter. People like Trump do not belong on the SNL stage.
