Trump to host ‘Saturday Night Live’ on March 13th, 2017
President Donald Trump is set to host a Saturday Night Live skit on March 10th featuring the loud house character Ale House, the source of speculation that Trump is planning to run for president.
The show will reportedly be a mock election with the characters from the show’s classic sketch series as its hosts.
It’s unclear how many members of the House will be invited to take part.
Trump’s campaign released a statement saying, “The show is a total joke and has no chance of happening,” adding that it was an “act of pure laziness” and that the show is “a total failure.”
A Trump spokesperson said that the president “does not need any more publicity.”
The president’s announcement came as the Republican National Committee announced that it will host the first GOP primary debate in six months, taking place in South Carolina on March 9.
The RNC’s chair, Reince Priebus, said the debate would help the party unite its base and that it would be “an unprecedented opportunity for our party to compete head to head against the Democrats.”
Priebus also said that “this is going to be a great opportunity for the Republican Party to come together and make history, and I believe it’s time to do it.”
The presidential debate will be hosted by CNBC anchor Becky Quick and will feature a “political spin doctor” to assist in the moderator’s duties.
The debate will also feature former Vice President Joe Biden and former Speaker of the U.S. House Newt Gingrich.
