Michael Che Donald Trump SNL Puerto Rico

During Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" segment, co-anchor Michael Che criticized President Donald Trump's response to the devastation to Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria, by referring to the President at one point as a "b****" and a "cheap cracker". Was she nasty to you?.

Che ended his epic rant with this observation: "You know, in one month you've mishandled Puerto Rico, DACA, the National Football League - it's like whenever anybody darker than your golf trousers has a problem, you're thinking, 'How can I make this worse?'"

"Oh, really Donald, you b--h?", Che said.

Video Shows US Drone Shot Down By Houthi Rebels In Yemen
The United Nations reports some 10,000 people have been killed and almost 3 million people have been forced from their homes. On Sunday, a United States-built MQ-9 Reaper drone was shot down in western Yemen, the Pentagon confirmed on Monday.

"This isn't a complicated issue, man, it's hurricane relief", he said.

The segment began expectedly, with Che - in disbelief - reading Trump's first tweet targeted against San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, in which the president wrote that Democrats "told" Cruz that she "must be nasty to Trump".

Social media exploded with divisive reactions to the segment, with many Twitter users agreeing with Che's comments and declaring him the victor of the SNL premiere. "These people need help", he continued. "You just did this very same thing for white people, twice".

Apple Investigating Reports of iPhone 8 Split Screen Problems
Mashable reports that Apple is now investigating the two incidents, disclosing no such thing has happened in the US or Canada. And a customer in Japan also reported a similar issue with his iPhone 8 Plus which he claims was delivered split open.

But the night belonged to Michael Che.

As CI readers know, Puerto Rico was left without power recently when a hurricane ripped through the region leaving many without a home, electricity, and without supplies. "And write them a check with our money, you cheap cracker".

Michael Che is a racist.

President's criticisms spark more protests at NFL games
National Football League team owners, including Bills owners Terry and Kim Pegula, have supported their players' right to protest. Boyer goes on to write "There are already plenty people fighting fire with fire, and it's just not helping anyone or anything".

Michael Che calls Trump a cracker and everyone loves it, if someone dropped the N word they would be fired. Alec Baldwin even won an Emmy for his impersonation of the president.
