Rep. Loretta Sanchez Encourages ‘Saturday Night Live’ to Dis-Invite Donald Trump

‘His divisive and racist rhetoric has very troubling and real world consequences’

"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to encourage Saturday night live to dis-invite Donald Trump from hosting the show this weekend. Many may believe that Mr. Trump is just causing controversy so he can get media attention, but his divisive and racist rhetoric has very troubling and real world consequences. 

Many businesses and individuals have severed ties with Mr. Trump and even SNL's owner, NBC universal stated NBC respecting dignity of all people are cornerstones of our values and they ended their relationship with Mr. Trump. 

Perhaps this blunder happened because currently there is no Latino cast member on 'SNL,; and there have only been two in the entire history of 'SNL.' I hope Saturday Night Live's producers,  writers, and cast members will consider how Donald Tump hosting 'SNL' will compromise the integrity of their show. 

Having Mr. Trump degrades the quality of "SNL's'  humor because racism isn't funny, it's lazy and cheap. Comedy has the power to highlight hypocrisy of society and reveal important social truths and political commentary. "SNL' has achieved that in the past. I hope it returns."
