Cringe-worthy SNL sketch resurfaces featuring Trump promoting a 'chicken wing restaurant'

Long before he was a bigoted president, spreading xenophobia and rambling incoherently during speeches, Donald Trump was a business man and a television personality.

Amongst appearances on WWE and the Emmys, Trump twice hosted Saturday Night Live, once in 2004 and then again in 2015, just 12 months before he was elected as president.

Trumps two appearances on the show aren't fondly remembered and he has been routinely mocked by SNL performers ever since he took office in White House.

However, one sketch from his 2004 appearance has gone viral again as it's just completely surreal to view with 2019 eyes.

In the sketch which also features comedians Kenan Thompson and Amy Poehler, the future president promotes his 'Donald Trump House of Wings,' a fictional chicken wing restaurant which has its own theme tune (an alternate version of 'Jump (For My Love)' by The Pointer Sisters.

Trump, who surprisingly isn't completely awful in the segment but is hardly funny, says that the wing is the best part of a chicken and also explains the flavours on offer.

Am I saying that I'm a chicken wing expert? No. But I am telling you this, the wing is hands down the best part of the chicken.

Better than the head. Better than the torso. Better than the back.

At Donald Trump's House of Wings, you can get them in five different levels of hotness, regular, hot, three-alarm, suicidal and hell spawn.

And if you like celery, congratulations, because it is on the house.

The clip has gone viral again after it was shared by pro-Trump video researcher Wojciech Pawelczyk and people don't know whether to cry or laugh.

Although his chicken wing restaurant was just a comedy skit, Trump did actually once try to flog steaks to the American public.
