Alec Baldwin has made noises about stepping down as Saturday Night Live's President Trump, but Baldwin's version of Trump was right where you'd expect to see him in the show's 43rd season premiere, doing just what you'd expect him to do: he was behind the big desk, mishandling disaster relief. Trump responded to her pleas on Twitter Saturday, arguing that she has poor leadership and she is among those who "want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort".

After the Puerto Rican capital city's mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz appealed for help "to save us from dying", the USA president said in a series of tweets: "Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help".

On Saturday morning, Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló provided an update on relief efforts, saying the number of gasoline stations now open has increased from 450 four days ago to 714. "We want to help you but we have to take care of America first", he adds. When you don't have food for a baby, it's not a good news story. "When you have to pull people down from their buildings - I'm sorry, but that really upsets me and frustrates me". It's like when anybody darker than your golf trousers has a problem, you're thinking: "How can I make this worse?" Dammit, this is not a good news story. Or, as it was recently said on BuzzFeed, "Black Athletes Are Black People, And Black People Are Dying". Nearly half the island's population has been without drinking water, according to the U.S. Defense Department.

However, Puerto Rico is still facing a humanitarian crisis, and many of its people remain without power and water. It's horrific, and these people need the attention they deserve. Trump then tells her that he could have been an National Football League player.

Texas & Florida are doing great but Puerto Rico, which was already suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt, is in deep trouble. Of course, he also found a few characters to take a stab at the "fake news". If this is the rate we're going, SNL's going to have a ton of material for its next episode.
