Shriveled apricot and presidential candidate Donald Trump took the stage at Saturday Night Live on Saturday night, and he was every bit as bombastic and as orange as usual.

During the middle of his monologue, the line “You’re a racist!” was heard from somewhere in the back of the studio. Can it be — is this finally the moment when Trump, the most racist of all the presidential candidates (and that’s saying something), gets his comeuppance?

Alas, it was nothing but a skit. Trump will not get his day of reckoning, because networks want to make money off his giant bellowing mouth-hole. Meanwhile, people on the street outside the studio were actually calling Trump a racist, for real. Protesters from a coalition of Latino groups marched from Trump Tower to 30 Rockefeller Center to carrying signs calling Trump “the face of racism.”
