Suggested Variety Headline: "CNBC Debate Dud" -- but for some of the candidates, the NBC business channel's inept handling of the October presidential...
Trump has targeted Latinos with his racist and xenophobic remarks and his rhetoric is causing real harm to the Latino community. We cannot allow him the time nor a platform such as SNL to advance such views.
