On Saturday morning, President Trump took to Twitter to complain about the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, who he said has shown poor leadership through the hurricane relief.

On the season premiere of Saturday Night Live, Michael Che and Colin Jost reacted to the tweet by calling Trump out for the thoughtless tweets, especially the one in which the president said the San Juan mayor was “nasty” to him.

“Oh, really, Donald, you bitch? Was she nasty to you?” Che asked. “How nasty? Are you shaking? You want to go smoke a Virginia Slim until your hand stops moving?”

“This isn’t that complicated, man. It’s hurricane relief. These people need help. You just did this for white people, twice. Do the same thing. Go 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.”

Later in the segments, Che and Jost reacted to Trump’s comments on kneeling NFL players, and NBA commissioner Adam Silver’s decision on the matter. “The commissioner of the N.B.A. said that he expected players to follow league rules and stand during the national anthem.”

“O.K. The N.B.A. is, what, 130, 140 percent black? What exactly are you going to do if they all decide to kneel? Have a game between the New York Porzingis and the San Antonio Ginobili?”

“You know, it’s hard to ask black people to respect the flag when we know that this country cares more about it than us, O.K.? And we love the flag. It’s just that white guys really love the flag. The only people I’ve seen love their flag more than white dudes are gay guys and the Bloods.”
