In just over a minute, Saturday Night Live managed to poke fun at white power, Islamophobia, the Ku Klux Klan and Nazis in a Donald Trump parody campaign ad.

The sketch named, Votes for Trump, features "real Americans" explaining their reasons for supporting the Republican presidential candidate.

"The guys a winner. He's authentic. He is the only one who actually created jobs. He literally wrote the book on negotiating. Trump is an outsider, I think Washington needs that. I think he could make this country great again," an array of SNL cast members staging as real Americans explain.

While the faux-political sketch may have started out like any other campaign ad, it is quick to reveal the cast have a little more in common then their like for Trump.

The sketch, which features Taran Killam, Vanessa Bayer, Aidy Bryant, Kyle Mooney and other SNL cast members, outs Trump fans as being racist showing the everyday Americans as Nazi followers, Ku Klux Klan members and "white power" supporters.

Killam is shown as a Nazi wearing a Swastika armband, Bayer is filmed ironing a Ku Klux Klan member outfit and Bryant as a Muslim-hating schoolteacher.

"He is not some cautious politician. He says what I am thinking," Bayer said while ironing a Ku Klux Klan robe.

The faux-ad which ends with the note "a message from racists for Donald Trump", attracted more than 120,000 views within hours of it's release on the SNL YouTube channel.

"I am not American but God help America and the world if this crazy orange man wins, he should be shipped to Mars with no plans of saving him," Hajar Saidi said on SNL's Facebook post of the video.

"I like how 'he speaks his mind' is always one of his supporters main points. So does a 5 year-old, it doesn't mean that they should run the country," Andy Panpipe Vale added.

"Way to go SNL! The truth hurts sometimes. Bringing it to light through humor will hopefully open some people's eyes!" Brenda Martin said.
