A band of Congressmen and women has declared that Donald Trump is Not Ready for Primetime.
The 26-member Congressional Hispanic Caucus has called for NBCUniversal and “Saturday Night Live” executive producer Lorne Michaels to rescind the controversial GOP candidate’s upcoming hosting gig due to his remarks characterizing Hispanic immigrants as rapists and thieves.
“Racism is not funny,” the group wrote in a statement of opposition issued Monday. “Mr. Trump’s racist remarks and his continued rhetoric demonizing Latinos and immigrants has created fear within these communities around the country.”
