'You Cheap Cracker': Watch Michael Che Blast Trump's Puerto Rico Response On 'Saturday Night Live'
Michael Che did not hold back his criticisms of Donald Trump during the season 43 premiere of Saturday Night Live.
Responding to Trump’s tweets about Carmen Yulín Cruz, the mayor of Puerto Rico’s capital city San Juan, the comedian called Trump a “b**ch” and a “cheap cracker.”
Was she nasty to you? 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. In one month, you’ve mishandled Puerto Rico, DACA, the NFL. It’s like when anybody darker than your golf pants has a problem, you’re thinking: How can I make this worse?
Since the “Weekend Update” segment people have taken to Che’s Instagram account, calling him the N-word and other offensive names in direct messages.
On Saturday morning, Trump released a string of tweets that seemed to suggest that Cruz, along with other Puerto Rico officials were not doing enough following Hurricane Maria, saying that they “want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort.”
