eliminated, sir. the country is at peace. they have great jobs as blackjack dealers at the trump hotel in damascus. >> the president of mexico is here to see you. >> send him in. >> donald! >> enrique! >> i brought you the check for the wall. >> i'm so proud of you and changing telemundo for all english to me. it's a great thing. >> of course. >> how is the economy? >> amazing, sir. in the words of our new national anthem "it's huge!" . i have no idea how you did it, sir. i don't have to get specific. with me it works. it's just magic. >> just magic. joining us now to discuss cnn political commentators ben ferguson and jeffrey lord. the just magic line there. what did you think of his performance? >> i thought it was huge. you know, he's terrific. frankly, when you go on saturday
night live and poke fun at yourself and you're a politician, you're running for office you can't possibly lose. i mean, this is big deal in america. president or potential presidents who have selpresident comet off looking terrific. he did a great job last night. >> any major gain or loss last night from the performance? >> i think in these type of performances by him really are good for him and his base for people to like him. they think, wow, donald trump on saturday night live. the next stop the white house. whether it makes other voters undecided look at him differently, i don't know? any time you can get on there and be a person, an individual and show your humor and be funny. it makes people able to connect with you a little bit more, i think.
the big question when you see him up there. as good as he is as an entert n entertainer. he's one of the best when it comes to live tv or reality tv. i'll give him full credit. there's some part that goes this may be the skit at the oval office. how is everything doing? it reminds me of how ridiculous some of his ideas and plans are. having somebody else pay for the wall. i think if you're smart and listen to that you're going, wow, this may only be possible literally if it's written in saturday night live. outside that it's not reality. i don't know if i want that guy in the white house. >> i want you to take a look at probably one of the funnier sketches. a music video spoof. watch this. ♪ >> he used to call me on his cell phone. ♪ ♪ on the other cell phone ♪
♪ >> that's just bad. it's just bad. jeffrey, all though i think a lot of people have laughs watching the show last night, but he got to a serious point that all though trump is in on the joke, people are looking for specifics after a fun night >>well, you know, as they are with everyone and they're coming through his campaign. i mean, he's out there with veterans, the economy, taxes, and all of that sort of thing. i mean, this is happening. you know, one of the things they thought was well done was the business with larry david. he was really, you know, mop these people. frankly, i hope they, you know, they wanted to -- the group protesting said they would pay $5,000 for somebody who did it. i hope they ante up and pay larry david. the reporting is they will. let's watch the moment as larry
david is making a cameo on the show. >> you're arrested. >> i knew this was going to happen. who is that? >> trump's a racist! [ applause ] >> it's larry david. >> what are you doing, larry? >> i heard if i yelled that, they would give me $5,000. >> yeah, a group offered him $5,000 to anyone who would heckle trump. do you think that was an appropriate treatment of an issue that so many people take seriously? >> on saturday night live? absolutely. everything on saturday night live is a joke. you have to put it in comparison it's not policy. if i was advising trump i would tell him to host every saturday if they offer it to him until election night. it's satire, humor, to make fun of people and things and it's humor. i don't think it had anything to
do with it being a serious or nonserious issue. i think when candidates can go on there and do things like this. remember, this is donald trump's wheel house. he's a reality tv show host. it's like coming home for the incredible thanksgiving dinner for him. i think it was a smart move when it comes to issues like that. >> jeffrey, you agree? >> absolutely i do. you know, to be serious here for a second, these people are professional race card players. the critics on this sort of thing. i think it was the right way to deal with them. >> jeffrey lord, ben ferguson, thank you. >> thanks a lot. meanwhile, we should see ben carson is making a campaign stop in puerto rico. he's been pushing back against the media questions concerning his past. at the press conference friday night dr. carson made an interesting prediction, as well. cnn was there. we're wondering with the campaign now wondering we're
going to expect from the doctor, but talk to us about the prediction he made. >> good morning, christi. he is predicting this intense period of media scrutiny, all these questions over his past is really going to help, he thinks, galvani vavanize his supporters. here's what he told us. >> i don't think it's causing a complication, and here's my prediction. my prediction is that all of you guys trying to pile on is actually going to help me. when i go out to these book signings and i see thousands of people they say don't let the media get you down. don't let them disturb you. please continue to fight for us. they understand that this is a witch hunt. >> and he is out alrea touting a big hall of campaign contributions he raised in this
week during the intense period of media scrutiny tweet, quote, we the people have made 10,000 donations this week totaling $3.5 million alone. big jab at the media there which keeps in line with the more combative tone we've seen from ben carson this weekend more aggressively going after the media in the wake of all these questions about his past. now here in puerto rico he'll hold a state hood event later this morning. hoping to rechange and take control back on the area that dominated this week for him. >> appreciate it. thank you. we are digging into the records of the two police officers who were charged with murdering a 6-year-old. i want to tell you what found out about their past as a town is remembering this little boy right here. be sure to stick around for more donald trump. he's said to appear on cnn
