'SNL' Imagines Its Own Donald Trump Campaign Ad

The 'Saturday Night Live' sketch focused on a very specific set of Trump supporters.

Donald Trump certainly needs no help in his presidential campaign, but Saturday Night Live has decided to give him a helping hand anyway. 

The March 5 episode, hosted by Jonah Hill, featured a digital short that served as SNL's very own Trump campaign ad. 

"The media's been saying some pretty negative things about Donald Trump," started the ad, "but what are real Americans saying?"

Supporters explained why they want to vote for him, including his business acumen and job-creator status, but there are a few things the cameras missed the first time around. 

"Some of his ideas seem a little out there, but I like that he's looking toward solutions," one supporter said. As the cameras zoomed out, each Trump supporter begins showing off swastikas, suspicious white hoods and "white power" messages surrounding them. 

The ad ends with a voiceover: "A message for racists for Donald Trump."

Hill hosted SNL for the fourth time, with Future as the musical guest. Ariana Grande will pull double duty on the March 12 episode as both host and musical guest.
