NBC isn’t concerned with equal-time rules when Donald Trump hosts SNL

The network "will evaluate+address any equal-time requests they receive based on FCC regs,” according to Bill Carter. Equal-time rules would only apply in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina -- the only states where Trump is legally a presidential candidate.

Carter adds that Trump will become the first major presidential candidate to ever host Saturday Night Live.
