On last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live—a show that doesn’t shy away from politics—comedian Michael Che had some words for President Donald Trump, the Huffington Post reports.

During the show’s “Weekend Update” segment, Che called out 45 for the remarks he made about San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, the news outlet writes. On Saturday, Trump went on a Twitter tirade and fired shots at Yulin Cruz, claiming that she’s displayed “poor leadership ability” in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

Che addressed the situation during the segment and criticized Trump’s administration for its lackluster relief effort. He called him out for quickly providing relief for individuals affected by the natural disasters in Texas and Florida but neglecting those living in Puerto Rico.

“Oh, really, Donald, you bitch? Was she nasty to you? … This isn’t that complicated, man. It’s hurricane relief. These people need help. You just did this for White people, twice. Do the same thing,” Che said, according to the Huffington Post.

Hip Hop legend Jay Z topped off the show’s season 43 premiere with a powerful performance where he showed solidarity with NFL player Colin Kaepernick by donning his jersey, CBS Sports reported.

Last night’s show aired a week after Trump called Colin Kaepernick a “son of a bi**h” during a rally in Alabama.
