It’s getting ugly for Donald Trump.
Latino activists are demanding “Saturday Night Live” drop the GOP presidential candidate from its hosting slot this weekend. Some are going so far as to promise $5,000 for anyone who interrupts the live event by shouting either “Deport Trump” or “Trump’s a racist” at any point in the live performance.

Hollywood elites have been pounding The Donald from their celebrity pulpits, with a select few like John Fogerty showing a genuine curiosity about Trump’s unlikely run. And this week, we saw the debut of a video featuring children hurling obscenities at the real estate mogul for his controversial rhetoric against illegal immigration.

Just wait. What we’re seeing is simply a precursor, a warm-up act for the main event. Should Trump shock the nation and become the GOP’s presidential candidate ,what we’ve witnessed so far will likely seem mild in comparison.
What might that look like?
- Thinly veiled Trump impersonators showing up on various TV programs in murky, villainous roles. Or, Trump’s name will be dropped in a negative fashion on shows that have little or nothing to do with politics.
- Late-night hosts, particularly John Oliver, Trevor Noah, Stephen Colbert and Larry Wilmore, will direct their comedy cannons at Trump. They’ll hammer his positions, ego, tone and hair, but not always in that order. The Democrat’s presidential nominee, likely Hillary Clinton, will get but a fraction of that mockery.
- Liberal performers cutting videos slamming Trump for his allegedly racist, sexist views. Consider “Girls” star Lena Dunham’s “My First Time” video, shot in 2012 to help re-elect President Barack Obama, as just one performer who will eagerly use her fame to fight Trump.
- Fast-buck documentaries may appear slamming Trump’s business dealings. We’ve already seen the re-release of the 2011 documentary “You Got Trump” last month, hoping to cash in on the anti-Trump fervor.

Conservatives and GOP members alike understand how imbalanced the current pop-culture landscape can be. They may not be prepared to see the forces set to align against Trump in 2016.
