Watch Donald Trump Ruin 'Hotline Bling' On 'Saturday Night Live'

Published On 11/09/2015 Published On 11/09/2015

I've had it up to here with Donald Trump's antics -- for those who can't see, I'm pointing very high up on my body. This weekend, the Donald hosted SNL for the first time since 2004 and, as expected, created an arsenal of shareable moments for the masses to witness and cringe at.From Larry David heckling the cotton candy–haired presidential hopeful to an army of faux Trumps taking the stage (all within the same monologue, too!), the controversial hosting stint brought us some pretty ridiculous moments. 

Of course, not every sketch can have us gripping our sides in laughter. Do people still do that? One particular sketch found Jay Pharoah lampooning "Hotline Bling" and featured Donald shaking around his simultaneously plump and meek body to a song about dancing. 

 

Yeah, that's right, it's actually possible to ruin a Drake song.

Once you get past Trump's moves, the sketch itself is pretty killer. There's even an appearance by Martin Short as the iconic Ed Grimley! 

It could be worse, though, as Mic points out: "Trump's version of 'Hotline Bling' is, for the record, much more self-aware than fellow contender Ben Carson's hip-hop campaign song." So, yeah, at least there's that.
