NBC pulled a promo video for Donald Trump's Saturday Night Live episode minutes after posting it to YouTube Wednesday, apparently over a clip in which he calls Ben Carson a "real loser," the Hill reports. While it shouldn't be a surprise Trump thinks his GOP primary opponent is a loser (some other people Trump probably thinks are losers: Tom Hanks, Leonardo da Vinci, the Michelin Man), an NBC spokesman told an NBC News reporter the network "accidentally" published a version of the video that included three clips "not for air." It quickly replaced the video with a new version that didn't include the clips in question.

So what's the joke NBC doesn't want you to see? Here's a transcript of one of the missing clips, courtesy of Rolling Stone:

Cecily Strong: "Because of equal time rules for television, Mr. Trump can only speak for four seconds in this promo."

Donald Trump: "So let me just say this, Ben Carson is a complete and total loser."

Trump hosts SNL this Saturday. And with whip-smart jokes like that, how can you not tune in. (Read more Saturday Night Live stories.)
