Some of us may have complained about Donald Trump's upcoming hosting gig on SNL, arguing that it might help his campaign. But who are we kidding? We're going to watch the hell out of it. This won't be Trump's first time hosting the sketch comedy series, and it certainly won't be the first time he's been featured in a skit. In fact, Trump is quite a fixture on the SNL stage, and has been the focus of many skits — just not in person. In anticipation of his hosting stint this Saturday, get yourself pumped with the best Trump SNL skits.
There's a reason that when Trump announced his presidential campaign, Jon Stewart thanked the higher powers that be. He is a bottomless treasure trove of comedic and satirical inspiration. A gift that never stops giving. A never-ending mill providing fodder for mockery. He's an ongoing joke that writes itself.
For this reason, Trump has been a favorite of SNL's writers, who are never short on material as long as he's in the public eye. While we'll have to wait a few more days to see what they come up with for Trump himself — for instance, whether the material will include a healthy dose of self-mockery or if Trump's team vets it and only the tamer jokes pass — you can get even more excited for his performance than you already are (don't pretend you aren't) by watching these choice skits featuring America's favorite joke.
