NEW YORK (TheBlaze/AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has agreed to host "Saturday Night Live" next month.
NBC said its former "Celebrity Apprentice" host will be the headliner of the Nov. 7 show. It's the second time he has hosted the venerable comedy institution; he was on the show in April 2004. Trump was also skewered in the season premiere's opening sketch.
