‘SNL’ Pulls Donald Trump Promo Mocking Ben Carson — Watch Original Video

Update 4:36 p.m. After posting the first promo for Donald Trump’s on “Saturday Night Live” on YouTube, NBC removed the original video from the site, replacing it a few hours later with a new teaser that had edited out the moment when Trump mocks Republican president candidate Ben Carson, calling him a “loser.” NBC’s new promo is seen in the video directly below, and the original is at the bottom of this story. According to NBC News’ Peter Alexander, the original videos were posted by accident.

1:03 p.m. NBC has released the promos for Donald Trump’s upcoming stint as “Saturday Night Live” host and, as predicted, they are huge.

The clips, which also feature Cecily Strong and other “SNL” stars, cover everything from whether Trump’s appearance violates FCC’s equal time rules and the suspected ratings windfall it will be for the show to a dig at fellow Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson. There are also jokes about Trump’s ego and, naturally, his favorite word: “huge.”

Despite Trump’s willingness to poke fun at most of his controversies, the promos are void of referencing the backlash this gig is receiving from minority groups. On Wednesday, director Alejandro González Iñárritu, actor Diego Luna and other prominent Hispanic figures called Trump’s past comments toward immigrants “hate speech” and again pleaded to NBC to cancel the polarizing candidate’s appearance on “SNL.”

The Congressional Hispanic Caucus and the California Latino Legislative Caucus have also expressed their concerns. And, in October, U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez gave an impassioned speech on the House floor about the episode. He stood next to a poster reading #Racismisntfunny.

Trump’s “Saturday Night Live” appearance will air at 11:30 p.m. this Saturday on NBC.
