‘SNL’ compares Trump’s rise to Hitler’s


“Saturday Night Live” opened its latest show with election coverage from CNN’s “election center,” where “bona fide hunk” host Jake Tapper, played by cast member Beck Bennett, looked back at the “crazy week in politics.”

{mosads}Highlights included the Super Tuesday press conference of GOP front-runner Donald Trump, played by Darrell Hammond.

“What a great, great night. I really am running the best campaign, aren’t I? The media is saying they haven’t seen anything like this, not since Germany in the 1930s,” Hammond says.

“I mean everyone loves me: racists, ugly racists, people who didn’t know they were racists.”

Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who awkwardly stood behind Trump during the news conference, is not spared.

“Yes, sir. Thank you, sir. Please, sir, may I have another,” Bobby Moynihan, portraying Christie, says after being insulted.

Jason Sudeikis also reprised his role as former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who blasted Trump last week.

“For the last nine months, I’ve sat down and watched Donald Trump say something every day that was either racist or sexist,” said Sudeikis. “We in the GOP — the party of the great Ronald Reagan — we do not say racist or sexist things. We imply them.”

Sudeikis’s Romney ultimately pitches himself as Trump’s vice president.
