Saturday Night Live returned this weekend, and while there was a whole summer worth of Trump moments to mock, the opening bit slammed the president for something he did the morning of the show.
Alec Baldwin returned as Donald Trump on Saturday night’s SNL, and slammed the president for criticizing San Juan mayor Carmen Cruz over her requests for hurricane relief.
“Sometimes when you’re president you have to make sacrifices, so I skipped the back nine,” Baldwin said, coming in from the links to answers a call from Cruz (played by Melissa Villaseñor).
“You called the best person for the job. Trust me, I know things are, as the locals say, despacito.”
Trump told Cruz it would be a few days before he could get aid to her and Cruz said that wasn’t good enough. “Well, you should have paid your bills,” Baldwin’s Trump responded. “FEMA takes a few days, unless you join FEMA Prime.”
“We want to help you, but we have to take care of America first.” Ms. Villaseñor replied, “You do know we’re a U.S. territory, don’t you?”
“I mean, I do, but not many people know that,” Trump claimed.
