Despite pushback from some quarters, Donald Trump will host SNL on November 7. NBC is merely lining up to slice off a little share of the mania the Republican Party has wrought. Don’t expect a change of heart from the show’s executives. They are not impressed by complaints that Trump is courting xenophobia and bigotry with his sweeping generalizations casting Mexicans as rapists and drug dealers. Nearly 140,000 have signed a petition sponsored by MoveOn.org asking the network to quash Trump’s scheduled appearance. Don’t expect NBC to cave; nor will it be shaken by U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez’s warning in a letter to the network and to Comcast that Trump’s hosting will be “a huge corporate blunder.”
