SNL Just Boldly Mocked Donald Trump Supporters

Saturday Night Live's show started out just like the outrageous week in politics went down. And despite defending his penis size at a nationally televised Republican debate, Trump is still in the GOP lead after Super Saturday drew Americans to caucus sites at several states across the country.

In a bold move to call out the shocking statements Trump has made on race, women, and immigrants, the show cold opened with the results of Super Tuesday, as Darrell Hammond played Republican front-runner Donald Trump, saying: “I really am running the best campaign, aren’t I? The media is saying they haven’t seen anything like this since Germany in the 1930s.”

That's not all the cast delivered as far as the critiques go. In the satirical "Voters For Trump" advertisement sketch, we see normal Americans acting in their daily lives expressing support for Trump, until the ad takes a surprising turn and we realize these seemingly normal acts are actually racist.

The political message from “Racists for Donald Trump” follows Ku Klux Klan members burning crosses, books, ironing Klan garb, and even painting “White Power” on the side of a building.

The sketch comes after Donald Trump came under fire for not rejecting former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard (a high title among the group) David Duke, who actively supports Trump for President.

In a detailed Facebook post, David Duke wrote, "I think he deserves a close look by those who believe the era of political correctness needs to come to an end.”

Over 500 major media articles came out today attacking me. Other than the Jewish ultra-Zionist NY Daily News, not one...

Trump feigned ignorance about David Duke and told CNN’s Jake Tapper, “I don't know anything about what you're even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. So I don't know. I don't know. Did he endorse me, or what's going on? Because I know nothing about David Duke; I know nothing about white supremacists."

Here’s the full interview:

Tapper repeatedly mentioned the Ku Klux Klan in his question and mentioned David Duke’s prominence in the group to which Trump never said, “nah, I don’t want votes from the KKK.”

If Trump didn’t know David Duke, that makes sense, but if Trump doesn’t recognize the Ku Klux Klan, he’s missing an important history lesson from elementary school.

Though belated, Trump did come out Thursday to call David Duke, “a bad person who I disavowed on numerous occasions over the years.”

Though David Duke isn't the only racist supporting trump. In an Arkansas Times interview, current national director of the Knights of the KKK Thomas Robb said he too supports Trump for President.

"As far as I'm concerned, Donald Trump is the pick of the litter," said Robb.

But that didn’t stop the SNL spoof from trending, or keep the New York Daily News from publishing a damning comparison comparing Trump to Adolf Hitler. Just ask Louis C.K., who even warned fans not to vote for Trump and made a similar statement.
