"You're a racist!" David yelled, as Trump stood onstage with two of his "SNL" doppelgängers. "Trump's a racist!"
When Trump asked David -- who was on set to reprise his Bernie Sanders impression -- why he was heckling, he responded, "I heard if I yelled that, they’d give me $5,000." He was right.
"They" referred to DeportRacism.com, a PAC that earlier in the week offered a cash reward to anyone who called Trump a racist on live television. David's bit was scripted, though the identity of the heckler was clearly a pleasant surprise to the cheering studio audience.
And now, DeportRacism.com is making good on its pledge. In a press release, DeportRacism.com's campaign director announced that the group would reward David for "standing up" to Trump's incendiary rhetoric:
"There’s nothing funny about calling Mexican immigrants rapists, murderers and drug dealers," the statement reads. "You could never get away with saying that about African-Americans, so why is it OK to say it about Latinos? Trump’s attacks on the rights of U.S.-born American citizens calling them ‘anchor babies’ and threatening to tear up the U.S. constitution to strip them of their rights is un-American and offensive. We need to deport racism, not people.”
Trump shrugged off the heckling, and used it as an opportunity to remind the audience of his mogul status: "As a businessman," he said of David's motivation for interrupting, "I can fully respect that."
