Many "Saturday Night Live" viewers take to Twitter to declare the "Weekend Update" anchor's Trump takedown "wins" the night.
Opinions are mixed on which "Saturday Night Live" sketch was the funniest during the Season 43 premiere with host Ryan Gosling, but one cast member got far and away the biggest social media reaction: "Weekend Update" anchor Michael Che straight-up called President Donald Trump a "bitch" and a "cracker" for his response to the Puerto Rico disaster.
"Michael Che arrived at the studios and realized that he'd left all his fcks to give at home," political writer Charles P. Pierce tweeted after watching the comedian go in on Trump for attacking San Juan mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz.
"The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump," Trump tweeted this weekend after Cruz demanded more government aid in wake of Hurricane Maria's devastation on the island.
"Oh really, Donald, you bitch?" Che said with a smirk, drawing a huge laugh from the "SNL" live audience. "Was she nasty to you? How nasty? Are you shaking? You wanna go smoke a Virginia Slim until your hand stops moving?"
"This isn't that complicated, man," he continued. "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 tee shirts, and write them a check with our money, you cheap cracker!"
Che ended his epic rant with this observation: "You know, in one month you've mishandled Puerto Rico, DACA, the NFL — it's like whenever anybody darker than your golf pants has a problem, you're thinking, 'How can I make this worse?'"
Fans on Twitter quickly declared Che's commentary to be the bright spot of the night, calling him "savage" and the "winner" of the SNL premiere. The ongoing praise was enough to make Michael Che a trending topic on Sunday morning.
