Donald Trump hosted "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, and the critics were mostly bored. The material wasn't great, and Trump isn't much of a comedian or actor, so it was bound to underwhelm.
The most interesting moment occurred at the beginning of the show. Earlier in the week, a Latino advocacy group called Deport Racism offered $5,000 to anyone in the audience who called Trump a RACIST during his monologue.
So while Trump was talking Larry David yelled out, "You're a racist!" When Trump asked him why he did it, Larry said it was for the 5-grand.
And Trump replied, quote, "As a businessman, I can fully respect that." Obviously, the whole thing was scripted but Deport Racism says it WILL give Larry the $5,000.
Due to overwhelming demand, a second show has been added to UB40's "Reunited Tour." The second show is set for Thursday, January 28th at the Blaisdell. Tickets to the first show on January 29th sold out in a week.
There is a controversy over whether this is actually UB40. A lawyer representing the group says this is the group's former lead singer, Ali Campbell's band and NOT actually the founding members of UB40. Ali Campbell's band has 2 previous members of UB40, but they're not "founding" members. Ali Campbell, being the former lead singer has his voice associated with a lot of their previous big hits. The legendary group is actually suing Cambell over his use of the UB40 name.
