The more light shed on the politically motivated criticism from San Juan Mayor Carmin Yulin Cruz, the more her complaints appear to be much ado about nothing.

"Given the president's history on race, given the fact that he, a few months ago, told us that there were good people on both sides, when neo-Nazis were marching in Charlottesville, yeah, I think we have a right to be suspect that he is treating the people of Puerto Rico in a different way than he has treated then people of Texas or Florida".

Che's co-host for the skit, Colin Jost, kicked off the digs by commenting on the president's response to the destruction in Puerto Rico via Twitter.

"Maybe from where she's standing it's a good news story. It's like when anybody darker than your golf trousers has a problem, you're thinking: How can I make this worse?"

She explains to him that Puerto Rico is, in fact, part of the United States. You bitch! Let me ask you, are you shaking?

At least 16 people were killed by Hurricane Maria when the storm hit last weekend. "Do you want to go smoke a Virginia Slim until your hand stops moving?"
