Margaret Cho Slams SNL For Inviting Donald Trump to Host

Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump is set to host Saturday Night Live next month, a move that has left many people outraged. Speaking with The Warp, comedian Margaret Cho joined the foray, slamming producers for inviting a "known racist" to participate while failing for decades to promote true racial equality. 

Taking aim, Cho said:

“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?”

“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."

Cho went on to suggest herself as a musical guest and Ken Jeong and George Takei as potential hosts.
