- I have to admit I didn’t. Is he on the show to pump up his ego or their ratings?

Amid a hypocritical protest by the LEFT to squelch freedom of speech and equal time, The Donald hosted SNL …
Last night GOP presidential contender Donald Trump hosted SNL and as one of his Trump look-a likes (Taran Killam) quipped, “I think this show already got better by 2000%.” Truth of the matter is, just as the real Donald Trump predicted, last nights Saturday Night Live show was HUGE!!! According to Entertainment Weekly, SNL had a whopping 6.6 household rating on Saturday night, easily beating the season’s previous high: the 41st season premiere last month, hosted by Miley Cyrus and with a guest appearance by none other than … Hillary Clinton. The Trump’s overnight rating was 47% higher than the Miley/Hillary episode.
Donald Trump only hosted “Saturday Night Live” because he had nothing better to do.
The Republican presidential candidate made his second-ever appearance on the show, dancing to Drake and portraying his future in the White House.
“Donald — you’re the most talented guy. You’re brilliant, you’re handsome, you’re rich, you have everything going — the world is waiting for you to be president so why are you hosting Saturday Night Live?” he said during his monologue. “I didn’t have anything better to do.”
Trump also participated in a reenactment of the music video to Drake’s “Hot Line Bling,” dancing as a “tax guy,” and sang along to the now infamous chorus, “You used to call me on my cell phone.”
But of course the bias MSM and the LIBS for at the Democrat Media Complex controlled WAPO, reported that it was an over-hyped bummer. Because the WAPO is so unbias and truthful when it comes to reporting on Trump. Because it would be perfectly OK for a liberal to host or be on late night talk shows, just not Republicans who might just break the LIB myth that they are people too. As Ann Althouse opines, “I get it. You hate Trump and you’re irked that he got the platform of “Saturday Night Live” to pose on — just like Hillary Clinton a few weeks ago and all the many other politicians who’ve had a shot at hosting over the years.”
Donald Trump’s highly touted and almost certainly inappropriate hosting gig on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” turned out to be an anemic and halfhearted dud.
Once upon a time, not so long ago, there might be a lesson to learn from Saturday’s boring and misspent episode — but that world no longer exists, certainly not where politics and TV intersect. Everything’s turned upside down. Bring back the old America, I say, the one where our preeminent vehicle for topical satire would have ably skewered a hateful, nonsensical, vainglorious presidential candidate, rather than invite him into the club and give him more of the empty-calorie media attention he seeks.
Senator Ted Cruz Rips CNBC Liberal, Bias, Agenda Driven Moderators at GOP Presidential Debate (VIDEO) … “This Debate Illustrates Why We Can Not Trust The Media”
The question is now settled science … the MSM is completely bias and in the tank for the Democrat party.
At last nights GOP Presidential Debate on CNBC, Republican presidential candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) ripped the liberal CNBC moderators and exposed them for the liberal, bias, Leftist, agenda driven, in the tank Democrat party propagandists that they are. From the very outset of the debate, the moderators began their snarky gotcha questions and seemed more inclined to insult the candidates and start a food fight than to actually have the American public hear how any of the candidates would handle certain situations and what their economic policies were.
CNBC, YOU ARE A DISGRACE!!!
Finally, Ted Cruz ripped the moderators a new one and let them have it … “This Debate Illustrates Why We Can Not Trust The Media”
”The men and women on this stage have more ideas, more experience, more common sense than any participant in the Democratic debate,”
At the Republican debate hosted by CNBC in Boulder, Colorado Wednesday night, presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz lambasted the moderators, particularly John Harwood of The New York Times, and the media for their treatment and characterization of himself and his competitors.
“The questions asked in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media,” Cruz at Wednesday’s Republican debate. “Everyone home tonight knows that the moderators have no intention of voting in a Republican primary.”
Cruz later went tete-a-tete with Harwood, a CNBC contributor, for cutting him off and wanting to move on.
“Congressional Republicans, Democrats and the White House are about to strike a compromise that would raise the debt limit, prevent a government shutdown, and calm financial markets of the fear that a Washington crisis is on the way. Does your opposition to it show you’re not the kind of problem-solver that American voters want?” CNBC anchor Carl Quintanilla asked the presidential candidate.
“Let me say something at the outset,” the Senator from Texas said. “The questions asked in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media.”
“This is not a cage match. And you look at the questions — Donald Trump, are you a comic book villain? Ben Carson, can you do math? John Kasich, will you insult two people over here? Marco Rubio, why don’t you resign? Jeb Bush, why have your numbers fallen? How about talking about the substantive issues,” Cruz said to commanding applause from the audience.
Hillary Clinton Hits the Sunday Talk Shows as Her Poll Numbers Tank … Uses Victimhood Excuse Again and the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy
NOT ONLY IS HILLARY CLINTON’S CAMPAIGN OLD AND TRIED, SO ARE HER POLITICAL EXCUSES …
The buck certainly does not stop with Hillary … Why would anyone vote for Hillary Clinton when all she does is blame every one else for her troubles, scandals and woe? With her poll numbers tanking and the once sure-fire Democrat presidential nominee in serious trouble, Hillary took to the Sunday Talk shows to tell the people she is trustworthy and transparent. However, NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ Chuck Todd presented Clinton with a montage of her political flip-flops for political expediency. Not only does she blame the IT folks and her lawyers for dealing with her emails, she also brought up her old favorite … her email scandal is a right-wing conspiracy. Good grief Hillary, go back to the 90′s.
How can the United States ever elect such a dishonest individual as president? Its bad enough the American people don’t trust politicians, but Hillary may just be the face of that establishment, say anything for a vote, pander to the people politician.
Meet the Press host Chuck Todd set the stage for Hillary to explain her flip flops over the decades by showing a montage of clips from yesteryear. Hillary, clearly prepared for the video and the line of questioning, assured Todd that her flip flops are not political expediency but are instead the same as Obama’s “evolution” on issues. Watch:
The goal here, I think, is to let her address the issues that matter to the Democrat base—her Iraq war vote, same-sex “marriage,” and the Keystone pipeline—and get them out of the way so she can move forward without them hanging over her head. What better way to sell this than as the same moves Obama made with such success among the party’s base?
Other segments of the interview didn’t go quite as well for Hillary (here’s the transcript of the interview). Her claims of victimhood (that vast rightwing conspiracy yet again), transparency, and ignorance didn’t sit well with many viewers, including Ron Fournier of The National Journal and Andrew Stiles of The Washington Free Beacon.
In his interview on “Meet the Press,” Donald Trump discussed many issues including conservatism, abortion, third party run, immigration and Hillary Clinton. Trump stated, that he believed it would be a miracle if Hillary Clinton continues to run. I have to disagree with The Donald here. Unless Hilary Clinton is arrested and perp walked to prison, she will continue to run for president because the Democrats could care less what she has done or continues to do. From her smugness in joking about Instagram, she is just laughing at a federal crime that she committed.
Donald Trump said it would be a “miracle” if Hillary Clinton is able to continue her run for president in the wake of the controversy surrounding her use of a private email server to conduct official business as Secretary of State — but if she does, he’ll beat her.
“I think [Clinton] may not be able to run, to be honest, because this whole email thing is a horrible thing,” he said in an interview conducted by NBC’s Chuck Todd.
Trump likened her situation to that of General David Petraeus, who resigned as director of the CIA after his affair with his biographer was uncovered, and later accused to have shared classified materials with her. The controversy surrounding Clinton’s email use intensified this month as reports revealed the FBI was investigating the security of her private server.
“General Petraeus, his life has been destroyed. And he did 5% of what she did,” Trump said. “So assuming she’s able to run — which would be absolutely, to me, a miracle at this point — I will beat her.”
