While things went relatively smoothly inside NBC’s studios as “Saturday Night Live” aired, the same couldn’t be said out on the streets.
Trump protesters and supporters clashed outside the SNL studio, while the audience was enjoying the show inside.
LGBT and “racial justice” activist Jimmy Rivera tweeted the raw emotion coming from a pro-illegal immigration group.

But Trump’s supporters were also present, albeit quieter. Huffington Post senior political reporter and politics managing editor Amanda Terkel tweeted:
About a dozen pro-Trump people here. Interestingly, they are refusing to do interviews for the most part pic.twitter.com/pCjVjjLJSh — Amanda Terkel (@aterkel) November 8, 2015
The League of United Latin American Citizens tweeted this, and got some pushback:
.@BrentWilkes fires up the crowd. @realDonaldTrump must be held responsible for hate rhetoric. #BastaTrump pic.twitter.com/O7m9vP9lPR

@LULAC @NHMC @BrentWilkes @realDonaldTrump The hate is all on YOUR side! TRUMP 2016! Latinos who don’t respect US laws are NOT patriots! — Politics Forum (@PoliticsFrm) November 8, 2015
@LULAC @BrentWilkes @realDonaldTrump Not a criminal, if your ILLEGAL you broke the law.

Terkel followed up with this tweet — but is the protest a failure? Some thought so.

@aterkel What are they protesting? That Trump wants ILLEGALS to follow the damn law and enter LEGALLY? GO TRUMP! #SNLTrumpTweetParty — MyPresident.Me (@MyPresidentme) November 8, 2015
James, a US Uncut video journalist used a favorite Trump-ism to describe the scene.

And Terkel continued reporting the happenings in photographs outside 3o Rockefeller Plaza to Trump Tower.

The anti-Trump crowd even bused protesters in from out of town.
The @LULAC #BastaTrump bus halfway to NYC #RacismIsntFunny we dont tolerate hate speech, @NBCSNL! pic.twitter.com/V8FePC1k8U

Despite the buses, they were still only able to garner a bit over 100 protesters. There were probably more people in the audience enjoying the show.
100+ protest the ignorance of @realDonaldTrump & @nbcsnl we refuse to be subjected to stereotypes that are not true. pic.twitter.com/DxDdMJHaHD — CUNY DREAMers (@CUNYDREAMers) November 7, 2015
And what was the result of all this activity? Zilch. The show went on and the demonstrators only hurt themselves.
@JamesFTInternet to all the Donald Trump haters you’re going to make the ratings for Saturday Night Live skyrocket thank you #DeportThemNow
