Donald Trump’s ‘Saturday Night Live’ Teasers Now Feature Sia

Hair jokes and ego still play a factor in the latest batch of “Saturday Night Live” promo videos for this week’s episode, which features host Donald Trump and musical guest Sia.

While these clips concentrate on the musician, there’s still time for the outspoken presidential candidate to loudly remind audiences who is hosting the show while also demonstrating his version of Sia’s infamous face-shielding hairstyle.

The videos are comparably calmer than the ones released earlier this week. Those featured Trump taunting the FCC’s equal time regulations while also allowing for himself and others to use his favorite new catchphrase: huge. The first batch of videos were also almost immediately pulled and re-uploaded online a few hours later in order to delete a segment where Trump called fellow Republican nominee Ben Carson a “complete and total loser.”

Given the outrage surrounding Trump’s appearance — most notably from Hispanic groups angered by Trump’s frequent comments about immigrants — it’s no wonder that the promos have already inspired parodies. “Funny or Die” recently released a video of comedian George Lopez as “Donaldo Trumpez” who is hosting a show called “Noche De Sabado En Vivo.” (That would be “Saturday Night Live” in Spanish).

Trump (and Sia) will be on the Nov. 7 episode of “Saturday Night Live,” which airs at 11:30 p.m. on NBC.

    I cannot believe all this controversy!! There have been numerous politicians on SNL per the years – many I was not supportive of or respected. People, this is a comedic show & IMO Donald Trump is portraying a caricature of himself…poking fun at his own expense!! Geez, get an attitude adjustment or don’t tune in this week – just stop the bitching & moaning….SNL has been on air for 40 years & damn sure know what they are doing – it’s called SATIRE so shut the hell up!!! A SNL fan from the onset BRING IT ON, DONALD!!!

      Pssst, he’s not in with all that liberal chaptrap, hence all this faux outrage. What he said about illegal immigrants was dead on and it struck a bleeding-heart nerve.
