'SNL' Cast Member Pete Davidson Is Not Playing Around About Donald Trump
In addition to suggesting that the Broadway musical Hamilton is overrated and that its cast should give the vice president-elect an apology this weekend, Donald Trump also derided Saturday Night Live after it aired. "I watched parts of @nbcsnl Saturday Night Live last night," he tweeted. "It is a totally one-sided, biased show - nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?" If he was hoping the SNL cast would take his request into consideration, he's in for some disappointment, and one cast member made that very clear on Sunday.
Pete Davidson, who joined the show in 2014, posted a screenshot of Trump's comment on Instagram and captioned it, "Never been more proud. F*ck you b*tch."
Davidson openly supported Hillary Clinton during the election and had previously shared other posts criticizing Trump. A week before the election, he published a video clip of Trump at a rally in Nevada insisting that his opponent was too corrupt to be allowed to run. Davidson's caption reads, "This dude is a f*cking moron that doesn't know anything."
After Clinton's loss on Election Day, he posted a video of his reaction, making it clear that he believed her loss was rooted in sexism.
I cannot believe this bullsh*t. It almost — something's up. Something's wrong, and something's up, and I don't think this was very fair, but basically what you're telling me is that you won't let this sweet old lady be president? Who's — nobody's more qualified than her to be president. She's been helping the whole entire world for 30 years and you're not going to let her be president because she's a woman? And you're going to let a f*cking rapist, somebody who doesn't even know how to f*cking read, somebody who doesn't know anything about politics, someone who's f*cking racist, a piece of sh*t, "grab 'em by the p*ssy," all on camera — are you serious? This is f*cked up. This is one of the — this is THE worst thing that has ever happened to me. This is the worst thing that's ever happened to me. And what a 'f*ck you' to Obama. Way to ruin everything he f*cking did for the last eight years. I'm disappointed.
The skit that presumably got under Trump's skin featured Alec Baldwin once again portraying the new president-elect, but this time mocking Trump's lack of preparation and knowledge by having him look up "what is ISIS" on Google, not realizing how large a border between the U.S. and Mexico would have to be, and quickly scrapping multiple campaign promises once Pence told him of how difficult accomplishing them would be.
Baldwin also responded to Trump's complaint on Sunday in a series of tweets giving him suggestions of more important things he should be focusing on.
It looks like the Hamilton cast won't be the only one Trump shouldn't expect any apologies from.
