Probably not available in your country and that’s why you’re here:
Trump, decked out in golfing attire, takes a call from Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz of San Juan, Puerto Rico. When the mayor asked for help after the devastation of Hurricane Maria, he responds, “It’s a big ocean, water, with fishies and bubbles and turtles that bite. We want to help you, but we have to take care of America first.”
“You do know we’re a U.S. territory, don’t you?,” Cruz said. Consumed with shock, Baldwin’s Trump retorted, “I mean, I do, but not many people know that, no.”
This was poking fun at President Trump’s speech on tax reform earlier this week. In the speech he defended the White House response to Hurricane Maria by literally saying, “This is an island surrounded by water, big water, ocean water.” The show later called out this moment again during “Weekend Update.”
The SNL sketch showed Aidy Bryant as Sarah Huckabee Sanders, joking about how many other administration employees she has outlasted. Kate McKinnon appeared as Jeff Session and Alex Moffatt as Chuck Schumer, who was said to be working on a “secret deal” with Trump.
The rest of the episode featured Ryan Gosling and guest Emma Stone promoting their hit film “La La Land” by joking about who really saved jazz in the monologue.
