tonight’s Saturday night Live The cold open focused on C-Span’s coverage of former President Trump’s visit to the people of East Palestine, Ohio, after a train derailment spread toxic waste to the town.
James Austin Johnson’s Trump, surrounded by actual firefighters from East Palestine, declared, “You know, earlier today, a farmer came up to me — big brother — and he said, ‘Sir, we don’t have anything to eat. No because our dirt is toxic,’ and I said, ‘Well, what dirt are you eating?’ Don’t eat shit, people! Don’t eat shit. You should eat that cold McDonald’s I brought you.
Yes, Trump was handing out Trump Water to people in East Palestine last week doing his best to turn a national tragedy into a political advantage.
“And bottled water – Trump Ice! I’ll be honest: I just put my sticker on some Dasani. We like to say ‘Dasani’ snlTrump is.
Most recently, Trump also bragged about Rihanna’s Super Bowl halftime performance on his social network, Truth Social, because Trump has never found a black artist he doesn’t like to denigrate.
“EPIC FAIL: Rihanna gave, without question, the worst halftime show in Super Bowl history – this after insulting more than half of our nation, which is already in serious decline, with her foul and abusive language. Also, kudos to her ‘stylist’!” he wrote.
snlTrump then said during his East Palestine speech, “Rihanna. By the way, you know, she was pregnant doing the Super Bowl, can you believe it?” He asked. “I said, of course she is, she’s not moving at all. It was just arms, wasn’t it? She was just doing arms the whole time.
The former reality-show host’s anger soon turned to Biden’s Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.
“But your train exploded, and who do we blame? Who do we blame? We blame Buttigieg,” offered SNL’s Trump. “Pete Buttigieg. It was his responsibility. Unfortunately, he was too busy being an idiot and a homosexual… And I have to tell you: I call him Pete Butt. Trust me, I’ve tried it every which way, And it really doesn’t get any better than Pete Butt.”
