Donald Trump has frequently been the target of some blistering satire and social commentary from famed late-night sketch comedy
show Saturday Night Live. From Alec Baldwin’s well-known impersonation of the 45th President’s over-the-top persona to the continual
takedowns in their popular Weekend Updatesegment, the Donald has faced universal criticism from the show’s writers and performers.
However, last night’s response to Trump’s lack of action to aid those feelings the aftereffects of a devastating hurricane in Puerto Rico
by Updateanchor Michael Che may have been one of the most pointed assault’s on Trump yet.
As per the video shared by TMZ, Che delivered what was a scathing mini-monologue during a portion of the fake news (sounds familiar?)
segment Saturday (September 30th), calling him both a “bitch” and a “cheap cracker.” “This isn’t that complicated man. It’s hurricane
relief, these people need help. You just did this for white people twice,” Che said. “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 cheque with our money, you cheap
cracker,” he added, an exclamation point on his rant that was met with thunderous applause and cheering from the studio
audience. While some may have been concerned about the potential backlash to Che using what is wide considered a racially
discriminatory term on live television, the response on Twitter showed that fans of the show weren’t phased at all. In fact, as one user
pointed out, it was exactly the type of the energy that the show’s premiere episode needed.
