Michael Che was uninhibited during the start of the 43rd season of Saturday Night Live last night. During the Weekend Update, Che, 43, came out guns blazing against Donald Trump because of the alleged slow federal response and possible mishandling of relief efforts in Puerto Rico. During a part of his skit, he called the President a “b*tch” and a “cheap cr*cker.”
After he read Trump’s tweet which accused the mayor of Puerto Rico of being “nasty” to him because the democratic party allegedly told her to do so, he said, “Oh really, Donald? You b*tch. Was she nasty to you? How nasty? Are you shaking?”

At the end of his monologue where he claimed it’s simply a matter of “helping people,” he called Trump a “cheap cr*cker” sparking a dialogue between users of social media.
Many Twitter users appeared to be delighted at his choice of words with people giving him credit for being bashful and bold. One person wrote – in the tweet pictured above – that they’re loving Michael Che as he is “a savage.”
Michael Che is a racist. How is it okay to call a white person a cracka? That is racist you hypocrite #SNLPremiere

However, not every person was pleased with the skit, as one critic said, “Hey NBC, last night’s racist rant by Michael Che was way over the line, repulsive, unfunny. #SNL was tiresome. After forty years, I’m done.”
In the episode’s open, Alec Baldwin returned to portray Donald as the President once again. During the skit, he poked fun at the POTUS for the recent media fiasco involving the NFL, the San Juan Mayor Cruz “attacks,” and the resignations within his administration since he took hold of the White House.
