"I know things are, as the locals say, Despacito (the word means "slow" in Spanish and it is also a reference to summer hit song by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee)", he joked while talking to San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz (played by Melissa Villasenor). "Sir, we just need help".
He suggested the Trump-Cruz issue was to his "side" and said his message is that he's "here to help" and collaborate with the federal government on resources.
Trump was already under fire from some U.S. lawmakers, who accused him of not giving sufficient importance to the situation and responding too slowly to the crisis in Puerto Rico, where the electrical infrastructure was totally destroyed and the people are having to wait in extremely long lines for food, fuel, water and cash.
"Wow, that woman was so nasty", Trump said to Aidy Bryant's Sarah Sanders, who Trump congratulated on outlasting "Sean Spicer, Scaramucci, Bannon, Priebus, Gorka, Flynn, Yates, and Tom Price".
Right off the bat, Cruz addresses the theory Trump floated about her being ordered by Democrats to say mean things about the president.
NBC's Sunday night National Football League ratings dip from last year's week 3
WXIA fact checkers can VERIFY that ratings were lower for Sunday night's games on some networks but higher on another. The controversy could be bad news for television networks, if vast numbers of viewers decide to tune out all at once.
Fellow mayors have said Cruz has not been attending meetings with federal agencies, to include FEMA and the head of the agency has more or less confirmed as much.
If Trump was hoping his attacks would get him out of having to visit Puerto Rico on Tuesday, it isn't working on Cruz.
Administration officials have followed Trump's push for optimistic messaging. "Not fair to FR or effort!", the President tweeted. "I wasn't saying anything nasty about the president".
Kate McKinnon also returned in a second "Close Encounters" sketch, where she yet again broke Ryan Gosling into helpless, hysterical laughter.
FEMA Director Brock Long, leading the federal hurricane response in Puerto Rico, on Sunday slammed critics and the media for what he considers misinformation, saying "I don't have time for that".
President Trump's response to the unfolding humanitarian disaster in Puerto Rico was desperately inadequate (and that's putting it generously) until Saturday, when it became downright shameful. They.... want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort.
