As you likely would have guessed, the season 43 premiere of Saturday Night Live took aim at Donald Trump early and often, but Weekend Update host Michael Che was the real star of the show.
During his segment discussing the president’s response to Puerto Rico and race relations, Che went on an epic rant that immediately began trending on social media.
After reading a tweet from Trump criticizing the mayor of Puerto Rico, Che responded, “Oh really, Donald? You b***h.”
He went on to add, “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.”
Here is Che’s direct shot at the president:
