Latino Protests Over Donald Trump's Hosting of Saturday Night Live Grows

"Saturday Night Live" has always featured politics and politicians, but it is under fire for inviting Donald Trump to host on November 7. A coalition of Latino groups are calling for the program to dump Trump. Jan Crawford reports. (CBS This Morning)

Many people don’t think there’s anything funny about Donald Trump hosting Saturday Night Live.

The controversy started almost immediately after it was announced two weeks ago that Trump would host the sketch comedy show on November 7, and is only growing louder as the date approaches through petitions by Hispanic organizations, the government and the public.

It started with a letter from the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda, which is composed of 40 Hispanic organizations, to NBC on October 15, calling for the network to rescind his invitation to host. “Donald Trump has yet to apologize for his bigoted comments about Mexican immigrants,” the letter reads. “Allowing Trump to host SNL will legitimate and validate his anti-Latino comments… We are appalled that you would enable Trump’s hateful speech for nothing less than a ratings ploy and ask that you rescind the SNL invitation.”

Trump talked to CNN about the Latino groups’ efforts to boycott his appearance and seemed unfazed by the controversy. “I think they’ll have luck in driving up the ratings,” he said. “I know these groups, many of them are scam groups.”
