Donald Trump has only been president of the United States one day but already his buddy Vladimir Putin is disappointed in his popularity. On this week’s Saturday Night Live, Beck Bennett appeared as shirtless Putin to troll Trump over his small inauguration crowd.
“Donald, let’s talk as friends. You’re not off to a great start, man. I thought you’d be better at this. However, I’m glad to see so many people showed up at your inauguration,” Putin said, showing an image of large crowds on the National Mall. “Oh wait, that’s the women’s march.”
Putin then ridiculed Trump and his press secretary Sean Spicer for lying about the turnout and claiming the media lied about the numbers. “Today, you went to the CIA and said 1 million people came to see you in Washington, D.C.? If you’re going to lie, don’t make it so obvious. Say you are friends with Lebron James, not that you are Lebron James.”
