What are these Liberal Latino’s afraid of? That America will have a sense of humor?
When Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump sets foot on NBC’s iconic “Saturday Night Live” monologue stage, comedian John Leguizamo won’t be watching.
You would think John would enjoy the humor? Or is he afraid of the competition since he is a comedian?
BTW, apparently some people like Leguizamo, who is Colombian by the way, not Mexican, doesn’t have a grasp of the English language, or, he believes that all Mexicans are illegals. It was pretty clear what Trump said – that some illegal immigrants do cause some problems in this country.
“I’m all for freedom of speech, don’t get me wrong. I believe in freedom of speech,” Leguizamo said in a Yahoo News interview. “This is different … If he had said those things about any other ethnic group, he would not be on that SNL.”
“I mean for him to go around saying that Mexican people are coming across the border are murders and rapists and all the horrible things he said is so dangerous,” Leguizamo said in the interview. “People have been hurt because of his words, because he incited. And he said, ‘well, my followers are very passionate,’ which is also his lack of sympathy and empathy is ridiculous.”
(If that is the case than why do you want freedom of speech for yourself but not others – this is what you call a true liberal, John!
Leguizamo told Yahoo News that he found it hurtful and insulting that SNL and NBC would have Trump on the show.
(John, you are taking Trump’s words out of context in order to fit the Hollywood mold of LIBERALS.)
“I won’t watch SNL anymore,” Leguizamo said.
(Adios – when did you say you were leaving and returning to Columbia?)
Leguizamo described Trump’s comments regarding Mexican people as “hate mongering.”
(Liberals always change quotes to fit their “They are all Haters” rant).
This week, protesters have rallied outside of NBC’s 30 Rockefeller Center headquarters, calling for the network to dump Trump’s appearance.
A group of prominent Hispanic movie stars, directors, scientists and academics wrote an open letter to NBC and SNL producer Lorne Michaels, voicing their opposition to NBC’s decision to allow Trump to host. They posted the letter on the website of Univision, rival to NBC’s Spanish-language Telemundo network.
Felix Sanchez, chairman and co-founder of the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts, wrote an op-ed on CNN.com last month opposing Trump’s appearance.
Some politicians have also criticized NBC for allowing Trump to host the show.
(Betcha two to one – they were all Socialist Liberals!)
In an interview with CNN’s Brooke Baldwin on Tuesday, Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez called Trump’s scheduled appearance on SNL “an affront” to Latinos because of the “negative things” he has said. She said his comments are “endangering Latinos.”
(This Congresswoman’s first name is TROUBLE. She is a member of the Hispanic groups like LaRaza who are always ragging about Hispanics being mistreated in America and that should tell you everything. She has waddled in so many protests I bet her feet are web-footed.)
We will give you a taste how this woman feels about cultures outside her own race:

Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.) stumbled out of the gate in the race for the Senate on Saturday, after a video posted online showed the congresswoman making a whooping gesture in reference to Native Americans.
Sanchez, who announced her campaign for retiring Sen. Barbara Boxer’s (D-Calif.) seat earlier last week, made the gesture while speaking to an Indian American group at the California Democratic Party’s convention in Anaheim. In a video posted online Saturday that was first reported by The Sacramento Bee, Sanchez described a meeting she had with an East Indian man.
“I am going to his office, thinking that I am going to meet with a,” she said, while patting her hand over her mouth and making a noise. “Right? … Because he said Indian American.”
“And I go in there and it was great. It was just great because he said, ‘I want to get my community involved.’ Involved. And that was the first time that we saw the Indian American community really come,” Sanchez said.
California Attorney General Kamala Harris, whose mother is from India, called the remarks “shocking.”
“It is shocking and there is no place for that!
Yet, Minnesota Senator Al Franken, a former SNL cast member, struck a more positive tone. He said he expects Trump to do well on the show.
“I think it’ll be an entertaining show,” Franken said of Trump’s upcoming appearance Tuesday during an interview with CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield.
Will SNL miss the Latino audience?
