Watch: George Lopez Parodies Donald Trump’s ‘SNL’ Hosting Gig

George Lopez Donald Trump Funny or
Funny or Die

Funny or Die has teamed up with George Lopez to parody a certain controversial Republican presidential candidate.

Lopez makes his return to Funny or Die as Donaldo Trumpez, a Mexican version of Donald Trump. Trump has been under fire for controversial comments about the Hispanic community.

In the clip, Trumpez hosts the popular “Noche De Sabado En Vivo” — which reads “Saturday Night Live” in Spanish — and entertains the audience with guests, parodies and characters.

The cold open has Lopez’s Trumpez dressed in a large costume for the character, Humpty Trumpty.

“Humpty Trumpty sat on a wall,” sang a Mariachi band in full swing. “Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.” Trumpez quickly adds, “In the polls!”

Trumpez recites a speech in Spanish that reflects many of Trump’s controversial remarks: referring to a female candidate as “ugly,” assuming a foreigner to be a rapist and building a wall that borders Mexico and the United States.

The video’s release comes the week of Trump’s actual “SNL” appearance. The businessman-turned-politician has been the subject of numerous calls by Hispanic groups, who have pleaded with NBC to cancel his show appearance.

This is not the first time that the former late night host has spoken out against the GOP candidate. Earlier this year, Lopez was filmed leading an anti-Trump chant at a stand up performance in Arizona.

Other prominent Hispanic figures who have publicly rallied against Trump include Oscar-winning director of “Birdman,” Alejandro González Iñárritu,  former Mexican ambassador to the U.S. Arturo Sarukhán as well as actors Diego Luna and John Leguizamo.

    Someone needs to bone up on their vernacular Spanish. He doesn’t say he built the wall to keep the “lazy Americans” out. He says he built it to keep the “f’ing Americans” out.
