Saturday Night Live cast member Michael Che launched into an expletive-filled racist rant about President Trump that went beyond comedy.

Che's unhinged rant came during a "Weekend Update" skit about Trump's tweets to San Juan, Puerto Rico Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz on Saturday morning.

Michael Che

“Oh really, Donald? You bitch,” Che said. “Was she nasty to you? How nasty? Are you shaking? Do you want to smoke a Virginia Slim until your hand stops moving?”

“This isn’t a complicated issue, man, it’s hurricane relief.

"You just did this very same thing for white people, twice. So, tell Melania to put on her floodheels, 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 have 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?"

Reaction to Che's monologue was mixed. Liberals applauded Che for calling the president a "bitch" and a "cracker", which is considered a racial slur.

The ratings for SNL's 43rd season premiere came in a tad bit lower than the 2016 season premiere.

    ??????Michael....where’s the lie ?? ????? ?

  • Numba Pulla

    Way too much going on. Pick your poison. Im going to pass on this one


    Anyone insulted by the word "cracker" should really look at the words created specifically for us colored folk. If Trump can call people sons of female dogs when the feeling strikes him, then surely Trump can be called a food item. SMH

  • Miss Thang

    I'm so sick of this culture of "outrage." He sucks. We know. Vote next year. Move on.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    But he called the NFL players "sons of bytches". When he apologizes I will then care

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Well, what was untrue? I’m not offended. 45 called plenty women bitchhes! You reap what you sew ?????

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Trying in vain to find the lie he had told......are folks outraged at his piss poor behavior the supposed leader.....

  • Yardgirl

    Where's the lie??? Lorne Michaels and the writers approve this skit. I would go so far as to say the writers wrote the entire thing and he delivered the words.

  • Elevated Soul

    Hypocrites on the left will justify what that racist said.Black Democrats are taking on the racist nature of their white liberal masters.....

    Black Democrats and their ignorance are setting back the Black race...

  • Justlooknout

    E hhh who cares. Son of a Bitch

  • Mi’Kel G

    I’m sorry but I watched SNL and it was factual and funny as hell! I’m still cracking up thinking about it!

  • OvertheMississippi

    There is an election next year for president? Where do I sign up?

  • imright


  • Pamela

    Fcuk him.

  • Pamela

    Fxuxk Trump.

  • my view


  • Simone

    Thank you! The Democrat Party has morally, economically and politically destroyed and corrupted the Black family and communities. As for PR, just days before, this same San Juan Mayor said President Trump was responding great. This was before the Democrat politicians clearly got to her. The PR Governor said Trump and his administration are doing a great job.

  • Elevated Soul

    Wow you liberals are DUMB.

    The poster didn't say a thing about an election for President. She said there is an election meaning the MID-TERM.

    Comprehension is so needed in your life...

  • KcoolMuziq


  • Clorox

    why don't you and the poster beneath me aka diamond and silk take your asses back to the 4chan /pol/ board

  • Elevated Soul

    So true....These idiots are lost and are a detriment to the Black race.

    Exactly the Democratic Party sent her the memo to trash President Trump and that's what she did.The mayor in the town next to her said that President Trump was doing fine and he also said she hasn't attended any FEMA meetings.The governor stated that President
    Trump is doing great.

    The evil Alt-Left will politicize anything....These idiots do not care about facts.

  • Simone

    Why don't you stop acting fragile and angry and accept different or opposing views on subject matters. This is why I love Sandra Rose - she does fair and balance reporting and stories.

  • Coy little wink
  • Clorox

    since you couldn't answer my question nor the one i asked you last week, i'll answer it for you...because you're too beta, and they'd eat you alive over there, so you'd rather go back and forth with people who agree with you about trump and SUB people who disagree with trump's policies. :)

  • Simone

    My workplace is 99% Democrats and it is no secret that I voted for and support Donald Trump. I have never been afraid of opposing views. In fact, I respect and listen to them. Sometimes you learn something new. Take note.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Well it's the truth. If he owned property or had family in Puerto Rico, or the USVI's he would of have first responders on the scene asap!

  • Clorox

    hey boo! cool of you to share your thoughts and views. so bear with me.... 1) do you agree with black lives matter? 2) (this is a long one, sis) what do you think about the omnipresent support of an alt-right movement by a president who said "many sides" were wrong in when ppl who were just a wee bit lighter than you were carrying tiki torches and rolled over someone their own complexion for disagreeing with them politically, and disagreeing with (the thing kaepernick started the whole kneeling thing for), the killing of unarmed ppl who ARE your complexion by police forces? this is something i asked you last week, and maybe you were busy, but i'd like to listen to you if you'd answer. take your time.


    No one trusts the lying American Media.
    You can't listen to black celebrities in Hollywood they are paid and bought by those who run Hollywood.. (we all know who that is) Their opinions will mirror their Hollywood masters when they voice them. They have to behave like a Good boy say some tired jokes mock the President be the Clowns that they are paid to be.
    Hollywood is upset the did not get to choose the President. Their agenda got a huge monkey wrench thrown into.
    Black Democrats are just Pawns...


    SNL lol is on one of the most racist networks. Who even listens to blacks in entertainment. Anytime a black does not agree with the Democratic party they are silenced and attacked.

  • ThisHarryHere

    HA!!! @ Flood Heels...

  • Roderick2011

    Did he lie?
    Speak the truth and shun the devil (Trump).

  • 19awesomegrl97



    The Democratic Party and Hollywood loves to control images.... Their big networks control visuals and are masters at painting pictures to try to sway the public. They have had how many Trump jokes on SNL non stop from the time he decided to run until now.


    Anytime someone black does not agree with the agenda and talking points of the Democratic party they are attacked. They are going to bring back Hillary Clinton again for 2020... lol

  • kennedy campbell be fair she does not always "tell" the truth..but i get what you're saying

  • Elevated Soul

    Great Post...

    Black DEMONCRATS are as evil as their counterparts.They are in the words of Malcolm "politically dead footballs" used as pawns by White Liberals...

  • SDot

    I don't see the problem here? What happened? LOL

  • Quitedeliteful

    Did he lie??? I don't think so. Some folks might not like the delivery but there is absolute truth in what he said.....

  • SandraRose

    U must be new here? ?

  • Guess Who

    ....this is something you post about, Sandy...yet Trump's continuous insults and cyber bullying don't get any fanfare from you. REALLY? The man called white supremacists "good people". You know, the same folks that think you are one generation away from being considered a full fledged monkey.

    ANY type of comments to THAT SHYT?

  • Miss Thang

    no, but if you actually vote in the midterm elections, unlike the vast majority of Democrats, you can mitigate any damage this idiot can cause. There is literally nothing any of us can do about him being president. He will not be impeached.

  • SandraRose

    There were non-racists protesting the removal of the statue. The KKK hijacked the protest. That's what Trump meant when he said there are good people "on both sides".

  • Guess Who

    Oh please. Trump's incoherent, jejune, unhinged, bigoted rants are just that. He stays being an unprofessional asshole, spoiled asshole who is not fit to run a vacuum cleaner let alone a country. I just don't get why supporters like you absolutely refuse to call him on his outrageous and despicable behavior. It's so sad that the justification for accepting his disgusting antics are, "Well, he doesn't talk like a Politician but a regular person!" That motherfuker knows NOTHING about being a regular, hardworking person.

  • Applebootay

    he is a “b-tch” and “cheap cracker" there..

  • Applebootay

    Sandra Rose - she does fair and balance reporting and stories.......

    Gurlllll....what you smoking? I need some of that...


    I was completely done with them when they refused to talk to the incoming President.... I am like WTF group of retards who are representing Blacks interests in politics and they are so hung up on partylines they won't even try to work with the incoming administration. Just ignoring the state of Black America . oh they refuse to talk about race issues when the President was black but always jumping on a mic or in front of Camera since Trump was nominated. Every other group talked to the President not the black people in Congress... LMAOOO I was like if these are the chosen 1s to represent the people we are doomed.

  • BlackLivesMatter

    Sandra Rose, darling. Stop this caping for white supremacists and Black-bashing. Regardless of your tongue-in-cheek or clickbaiting writing style, your words have power. I want to find the "British Black lesbian humor" in your writing, but instances like this makes me feel sorry for you in your chosen sunken place right along with your twin Paris Dennard.

    Shame on you, Sandra. Do better. And, remember you are STILL Black no matter who you loyally cape.

  • Noirluv45


  • GuestSTAR

    O please, on the campaign trail and as PRESIDENT how many juvenile names has he called people?? If he wants respect, he has to act respectful. Anyone angry about celebs calling him names, should write or tweet their President to change his own behavior.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Michael Che will call anybody out. He reminds me of Chris Rock

  • Applebootay

    or a female dog.....

  • OvertheMississippi

    In that case, there is one NEXT MONTH! So.....
    Elevate your MIND and get yourself together!! ??????????

  • Monique B

    Oh please, it's getting BORING!

  • Elevated Soul

    Black Democrats are brainwashed to put the Democratic Party over the Black race. They are complete sellouts.....


    i can't keep hearing about trump every two seconds.. goddam.. we get it.. stfu.

  • Realnigga101

    He should get fired.

  • MythCalledLove

    Anybody still watch SNL?


    I am never shocked... I read some of the articles the black targeted news like TV One and the Root even Ebony and Essence writers .. No objectivity at all.. I am like wow.

  • Luvn_it

    Scripted everything on that show is wrote by writers.?

  • Hair Lova ???


  • Hair Lova ???

    What's the problem? This is the same damn man that continuously shows he's racist every chance he gets. This is a man that wants to build a wall, and put a traveling ban on Muslims. What Michael was light compared to what the country so called president openly says.


    He can dish it but can't take it. He showed America how to act this way

  • mocha brown

    Girl bye? proving that age doesn't make you smarter!

  • mocha brown

    I love this black man right here! ??? kudos my brother because trump opened up the flood gates by calling the ballplayers mom a bitch! Do on to others donald duck!

  • Renee26

    He told no lies....PR hasn't received the same help as TX and FL and it's part of the US so what's the valid excuse for denying those people help or even delaying the help???

  • Renee26

    They sometimes write their own skits....I wouldn't be shocked or disgruntled if that's how Michael really feels

  • Renee26

    Dump is still the president an he called players sons of bitches so if cursing didn't cost Dump his job Michael is safe.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Do u kno the type of racial slurs donald uses to refer to us?? Ha..pic another topic to make the black man feel bad sandy.

  • Nina Ross

    If trump can call black athletes SOB's then a Black man can call him the same.

  • Cie Be

    Yasss, you betcha!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Straight like that! LOL

  • hottlanta

    He called people ingrates over the weekend. Folks upset about the flag but not upset about Dump calling those men SOB''s. If someone said his son Barron was a SOB folks would be boycotting and everything and the person will lose their job as well. All of his supporters on television kept saying "that's Donald" as if oh well he got away with saying he grabs women by the puzzy's so what are you complaining about.

  • hottlanta

    Betta know it.

  • Roderick2011

    You need to learn some history.

    The statues were erected by white supremacists long after the Civil War and around time that blacks decided they weren't going to be second class citizens any more.

    If they were to delineate history then why weren't there any statues of slaves?

  • Roderick2011

    So Trump gets to call the people of Puerto Rico 'lazy' and 'ingrates' but you don't believe anyone will clap back?

    Is Trump some sort of god who shouldn't be criticized?

  • kennedy220

    nope. I've been here since we had to have the work emails.....maybe I should have put it like this. tell your truths...but it's your opinions that people mix up and believe it as truth. and that's in general when I look at comments on other forums, some people think their opinions are facts (not saying you) and some of those that read them believe them as facts

  • WutizaGRANNY!
  • Jefferey Franklin

    Where is the out rage? Don't understand why people are demanding respect for the most openly disrespectful President in US history.

  • Jefferey Franklin

    Cause he in fact called their mother's a bitch.......sooooo yeah....this the President yall.......

  • Karen Brady

    I hollered

  • Karen Brady

    I love weekend update. Most of it sucks though.

  • lovelygamour

    Cracker is not racist! Cracker is a term created by whites to describe poor whites from the south west usa. I read it in an old dictionary. I remembered cause I think its funny. If I was white I would rather be called a cracker than trailer trash. And trailer trash is another term they created.

  • lovelygamour

    They go offscript but its frowned upon and they could get fired. I doubt that lorne will touch this.

  • lovelygamour

    They yell about black people but talk about black news like crazy. Even the other white people are saying stop. Its obsession.

  • Luvn_it

    Oh okay
