This week's Saturday Night Live went all-out with their anti-Trump hate. After actor and ardent Trump-hater Alec Baldwin tore into President Trump during the show's cold open, Michael Che's Weekend Update monologue painted the president as a racist for his response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, calling the POTUS a "cheap cracker" and a "b****."
Che mocked Trump for going after San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz on Twitter, though, as noted by The Daily Wire's Emily Zanotti, President Trump's remarks were not incorrect.
Trump accused Cruz of being "nasty" toward him, noted Che.
“Oh really, Donald? You b****,” said Che. “Was she nasty to you? How nasty? Are you shaking? Do you want to smoke a Virginia Slim until your hand stops moving?”
“This isn’t a complicated issue, man, it’s hurricane relief,” he said. “You just did this very same thing for white people, twice. So, tell Melania to put on her flood heels, get some bottled water, some food, pack up some extra Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl T-shirts and write them a check with our money, you cheap cracker!”
The accusations of racism continued: “In one month you have mishandled Puerto Rico, DACA, the NFL. It’s like when anybody darker than your golf pants has a problem you’re thinking, how can I make this worse?”
Colin Jost, Che's Weekend Update co-host, also nailed Trump for his response to Hurricane Maria.
“Trump says the people of Puerto Rico ‘want everything to be done for them,’” said Jost. “Then he told his caddy to repair his divot and drive him to the next hole. Hey, Trump always said he was going to get things done faster than any other president. And now I believe him. Because it took George W. Bush five years to get his Katrina.”
Of course, Cruz, a Democrat, has clearly fumbled the relief effort on her end, admitting she has yet to meet with federal officials concerning the recovery. She has, however, had time to hit the press junket and have "Help Us We Are Dying" t-shirts made-up to shame Trump. Weird.
For good measure, rapper Jay Z wore a Colin Kaepernick jersey during his SNL performance on Saturday.
