Prior to his hosting SNL last Saturday, Trump told Fox News' Bill O'Reilly that he said, "You're fired!" to a few sketches as to not alienate voters. But in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, SNL cast member Taran Killam said Trump wasn't exactly giving the executive orders up in 30 Rock.
"Lorne [Michaels, SNL's creator,] won't pressure people to do things that make them very uncomfortable," Killam said, "but at the same time Lorne is really the one who decides what does and doesn't make it in the show." Well alrighty then!
Either way, Trump's stint as host turned out to be a huge success for SNL-- at least in the numbers. Despite vocal protests and lukewarm reviews for Trump's performance, the episode gave SNL its best ratings in years, so there's that.
What do you think? Might Trump have exaggerated his power a little bit?
