In a pre-taped (Racists for Trump) segment that rolled after host Jonah Hill’s monologue, SNL riffed on Trump’s recent entanglement with white supremacist David Duke and took aim at the bigoted contingent of Trump’s supporters.” PLUS: Louis CK compares Trump to Hitler in a scathing e-mail, and Louis CK first met Trump in the late ‘80s/early ‘90s.

On top of that, it states that you waive your right to sue NBC Songland (e.g., in case you didn’t read the contract upon signing).”
“I felt we managed to tie up enough of the knots, so there was a sense of where most of the characters were going,” says the Downton creator. “Well, there may be a film. That’s still being decided.
