This weekend’s season premiere episode of Saturday Night Live featured Jay-Z as its musical guest and given the climate of the country right now, the comedic edge skewed towards the political as expected. During the “Weekend Edition” segment, co-host Michael Che took aim at President Donald Trump, calling him a “cheap cracker” and “b*tch” in the process.
Che joined Lin-Manuel Miranda and others shouting down Trump’s recent digs at Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria. While most of the response on Twitter didn’t go to the point of name-calling, Che didn’t pull any punches.
“Oh, really, Donald, you b*tch? Was she nasty to you?” Che said, referencing San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz and Trump’s surprisingly brisk weekend tweets towards the disaster relief efforts in the island region. “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.”
