“Saturday Night Live” didn’t waste any time defusing the Deport Racism challenge, which offered $5,000 to anyone who managed to disrupt the broadcast by shouting, “Trump is a racist!”
Larry David, who had just wrapped up a sketch playing Bernie Sanders, decided to claim the bounty by shouting the line from offstage. Or was that Bernie Sanders trying to score the five grand? They’re awfully hard to tell apart.

Hold up: It’s a two-part challenge. To collect, the winner also has to “be identified by name in media (TV, print, radio or online) news reports as being a DeportRacism.com supporter.” We just wanted to remind David — he earned it.
Trump, flanked by SNL cast-members playing Trump, gets heckled by Larry David, who wants money. Well done all around. #SNL

Nice call having Larry David tackle the "Trump's a racist" thing before anyone in the audience could do it. #SNL
