I heard about this on WOAI this morning. Someone wants to pay $5,000 to anyone who shouts "Racist" at Donald Trump during the live broadcast of Saturday night's SNL. We know already that Trump will come up with a crude comeback. But here's a better response.
The offer comes from a group called Deport Racism. Here's the url for the notice:
They're obviously trolling for hits so the link will not be hyperlinked at Sleepless in Midland, at least not in this post. Anyway, here's the essence of the offer:
The DeportRacism.com Political Action Committee will pay $5,000 cash to anyone on the set of the show or in the studio audience who yells out or gets on camera during the live TV broadcast clearly heard saying “Deport Racism” or “Trump is a Racist.”
This is a chance to turn Trump’s appearance on the show into a media story that addresses his racist comments against Latinos. Anyone can claim the $5,000 bounty with no prior relation or involvement with the DeportRacism.com movement if they disrupt the show and meet the both of the following criteria:
1. Be heard clearly on-air during the live TV broadcast saying “Deport Racism” or “Trump is a Racist.”
2. Be identified by name in media (TV, print, radio or online) news reports as being a DeportRacism.com supporter.
If more than one person disrupts SNL and meets the above criteria, the $5,000 offered will be divided equally among them.
Here's what Trump should do when he starts his monologue: Announce that the offer is out there and invite the entire audience to shout in unison: "Trump is a racist." Then announce that if they'll leave their names with him he'll see that they get printed in some online news report -- that part shouldn't be too hard. Then everyone who did it gets to share in the five grand. If there are 100 people who go through with it that's a cool $50 each just for playing along with Trump.
It's the art of the deal!
