Dem Takes To House Floor To Call On SNL To Dump Donald Trump (VIDEO)

Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) took to the House floor Thursday to demand NBC disinvite Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump from hosting “Saturday Night Live.”

“I rise today to encourage ‘Saturday Night Live’ to disinvite Donald Trump from hosting their show this weekend,” Sanchez said. “Many may believe that Mr. Trump is just causing controversy so that he can get media attention, but his divisive and racist rhetoric has very troubling and real world consequences,” Sanchez said.

Trump has already recorded the promos for his appearance scheduled for this Saturday.
