It seems that the whole cast of “Saturday Night Live” wished to take a week-long getaway when former President Donald Trump hosted for the very first time.
Maya Rudolph– who was a full-time “SNL” cast member from 2000 to 2007– said the entire cast had the same reaction when they found out Trump, the host of “The Apprentice” at the time, would be hosting the program in 2004.
” I keep in mind when Trump hosted for the first time for ‘The Apprentice,’ and we, as a cast, were like, ‘Fuck.
The “Big Mouth” star isn’t the only former– or current– cast member who has actually shared their not-so-fond memories of working with Trump on the show.
Seth Meyers, who was also on “SNL” at the time, informed Howard Stern in 2019 that Trump “was everything you would believe.”
Meyers included: ” He didn’t have any sense of humor, however if things worked [with the audience], he liked them.”
Colin Jost, one of the program’s head writers, also slammed Trump’s 2nd time hosting the program in 2015, when he was running for president– an appearance that eventually stimulated protests. On a podcast, Jost informed now-Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg that the show itself, “just on a funny level,” was “pretty bad” when Trump hosted.
There was one sketch that Trump “was way into,” Jost said, which made it onto the show: Cecily Strong and Vanessa Bayer played pornography stars who endorsed Trump for president.
Jost noted that this was before “all the Stormy Daniels stuff came out,” and said he remembered finding Trump’s high interest in the sketch to be surprising for somebody running for president.
