NEW YORK – A “Saturday Night Live” skit didn’t appear to pull any punches about Donald Trump, but that was before the actors revealed they were “racists.”
Viewers saw an ordinary view of the American heartland and were introduced to voters doing ordinary things — ironing clothes, painting a house, gathering firewood — as they explain why they support Trump. Their reasons ranged from being a business acumen to his no-nonsense rhetoric.
Then, at the 35-second mark, the ad devolves into showing the characters as Nazis, white supremacists and anti-Muslim.
The skit ends with text over the screen reading “Racists for Trump,” as one of the fake voters brings firewood to a burning cross.
