Donald Trump will be hosting SNL on November 7. Comedian Margaret Cho slammed SNL producers for inviting Trump and for the lack of Asian American representation in the show's 41 years.
“Why has there never been an Asian-American host, cast member or musical guest on ‘SNL’ in 41 years? Forty-one years. Yet they want Donald Trump, a known racist, a known sexist, who disgustingly wants to have sex with his daughter. Who does he think he is, Woody Allen?” (I think Lucy Liu has hosted before)
“People come at me and say, ‘Oh, Fred Armisen is a quarter Japanese, Rob Schneider is half Filipino.’ Yeah, that makes three-quarters of an Asian-American, not even in one person, in 41 years."
“I’m proposing Ken Jeong. I would like to be the musical guest. That’s all I ask. They would take a momentous step forward, if they include Ken Jeong or myself. If not us, George Takei, who is hilarious and ultimately needs to be given that honor.” (Margaret Cho is guest starring on Ken Jeong's show Dr Ken)
The National Hispanic Leadership Agenda also wrote an open letter to NBC and Michael Lorne to cancel Donald Trump's appearance.
