Trump in 2012 tweeted nearly a dozen times about the Stewart and Pattinson’s on-again-off-again relationship. Stewart seemed bemused by his obsession, and read out a few of his tweets on the show.
“The president is not a huge fan of me, but that is so OK,” she said during the monologue. “And, Donald, if you didn’t like me then you’re really probably not going to like me now ’cause I’m hosting SNL and I’m, like, so gay, dude.”
“To be fair, I don’t think Donald Trump hated me. I think he’s in love with my boyfriend,” Stewart said.
The actress also committed the ultimate SNL faux-pas by accidentally swearing during her monologue.
“We’ve got a great show and I totally care that I’m here ’cause it’s the coolest f—ing thing that I’ve… Oop,” she said before adding: “Oh my god, and I’m sorry, and [musical guest] Alessia Cara is also here. And I’ll never come back.”
