NBC pulled a “Saturday Night Live” promo in which Trump called a GOP competitor, Dr. Ben Carson, a “real loser.”
After The Hill tweeted this report, it got a flurry of replies:

.@NBC spox: NBC accidentally posted wrong @YouTube link w 8 @nbcsnl promos – 3 of them not for air, inc Trump calling Carson a “real loser.”

@PeterAlexander Odd…because the “loser” snippet was also posted on the SNL site (not youtube) — Tim Hanrahan (@TimJHanrahan) November 4, 2015
@thehill So NBC doesn’t care if they upset Hispanic audience members, but are terrified they might upset Ben Carson? — ScottGDC (@ScottGDC) November 4, 2015
@thehill . Clever move. Will get even more buzz for pulling it, than letting it run.

@thehill thank God! Love @realDonaldTrump but that’s below belt re:sweet @RealBenCarson! We all want them as running mates! — Julie Melvin (@snooozzzze) November 5, 2015
But ultimately, it all comes down to Trump.
@thehill Lookin forward to @realDonaldTrump on SNL. Should be armageddon… for establishment candidates! Hayooo!!!

A new series of promos have replaced the Carson swipe, in which he appears along with SNL cast member Cecily Strong.
Trump makes fun at his own foibles in the promos. In one example Strong says that the businessman promised not to “brag or say he the best at anything.”
“That’s right, Cecily,” Trump replies. “And I’m going to do the best job anyone’s ever done not saying it.”
“And you just said it,” Strong notes.
“What can I say, I’m the absolute best,” Trump replies. “What can I say.”
Hey, if you’ve got it …
Trump is scheduled to reprise as SNL guest host on November 7, and will be appearing with musical guest Sia. It’s expected to be yuge.
