Miguel Wants Donald Trump Off 'SNL' — And He's Not The Only One

The R&B singer doesn't think Trump's ignorance 'deserves that kind of attention.'

Donald Trump will host "Saturday Night Live" on Nov. 7, and not everyone is happy with NBC’s choice of celebrity. Especially not Miguel.

The R&B singer weighed in on the presidential hopeful in a new video interview with NME, offering some astute political commentary along with some high quality trash talk.

"I don’t think ignorance deserves that kind of attention,” Miguel said. "Unfortunately we live in a world where attention is the ultimate currency."

What if NBC asked him to perform on the same episode of "SNL" as Trump? "Me being who I am, I would definitely decline, probably at my own detriment,” he said. "I think there’s a tremendous responsibility that we all have just to not be f--king ignorant."

He’s not the only one who feels that Trump doesn’t deserve his hosting gig. The National Hispanic Leadership Agenda recently wrote to NBC Universal CEO Stephen Burke and "SNL" executive producer Lorne Michaels urging them to boot the businessman from the show. "We are appalled that you would enable Trump's hateful speech for nothing (more) than a ratings ploy and ask that you rescind the SNL invitation,” they wrote.

Miguel did have to admit that, if nothing else, Trump’s appearance will be “good for the ratings.” Watch his full interview over at NME.
