If you've somehow missed it, Donald Trump is hosting "Saturday Night Live."

"Live from New York, it's Saturday night!" exclaimed "SNL" cast member Taran Killam, playing Donald Trump.

And, if you've somehow missed this, too, Donald Trump isn't super popular with Latinos.

"They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists," Trump said when he announced his run for president.

So it's not surprising that Latinos are protesting the show's decision to have Trump host. (Video via National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts)

It seems highly unlikely the network will drop Trump, even though it already cut ties with the presidential hopeful for "The Apprentice" and his "Miss USA" pageant.

Either way, it'll probably be awkward for Trump and the show's Latino cast members. Or it would be, if "SNL" had one. The show hasn't had a Latino cast member since Fred Armisen left in 2013.
