Saturday Night Live spoofed Donald Trump’s comments about women in a skit that showed the show’s version of the Republican presidential front runner making even more absurd comments and mocking his support from female television personalities.
“When I say women, you say suck!” SNL‘s Trump shouts at a spoof-rally.
The sketch also mocked prominent conservative media personality Scottie Nell Hughes, who supports Donald Trump. Portrayed by SNL’s Cecily Strong, Hughes defends a series of Trump comments to CNN’s Kate Bolduan, played by Kate McKinnon. “As a woman, I like Donald Trump, but as a full-blown nutjob, I freakin’ love him,” Strong says as Hughes.
Strong also said Trump didn’t mean to retweet an “unflattering” photo of Ted Cruz’s wife. “That was an accident because Donald’s hands are just so big, he can’t see every little tweet his fingers retweet,” she says. “His hands are this big flaccid.”
SNL’s Trump, played by comedian Darrell Hammond, also compliments the real estate mogul’s daughter and her body parts in the skit, saying she’s the “best.” “She’s so smart, so talented and what a rack. She just had a baby so you can imagine that rack now. It is just tremendous,” Hammond’s Trump says of Ivanka Trump.
Hughes appeared to take the joke in stride, posting about it on Twitter.
