"These people need help", he continued. "When you don't have food for a baby, it's not a good news story".

In the cold open, Melissa Villaseñor, playing Cruz, called Alec Baldwin's Trump, pleading for federal assistance.

Che, while mentioning Trump's tweet where he called Cruz nasty, called the president a "bi-h" and reflected on the racial implications of the his actions.

In a series of tweets Saturday, Trump accused the mayor of "poor leadership" and want the government to do everything for them.

"After President Trump was criticized for a awful response to Hurricane Maria", said Colin Jost, "this morning he finally gave the people of Puerto Rico what they needed most: a bunch of tweets straight-up calling them lazy".

"I told you, I'm nothing if not loyal", Baldwin's Trump replied. "If I'm doing a film [a Lamborghini biopic opposite Antonio Banderas] in Rome in the fall, you can bet I'm going to be on a satellite from Rome doing Trump".

Trump is scheduled to visit Puerto Rico on Tuesday along with First Lady Melania Trump.

"Maybe from where she's standing it's a good news story".

Cruz, who has appeared regularly on US cable news programs, was particularly pointed in rejecting a statement by acting Homeland Security secretary, Elaine Duke, who called the government's response "a good news story in terms of our ability to reach people and the limited number of deaths that have taken place".

The opening sketch wasn't the only part of the premiere that hammered the President regarding Puerto Rico.

"Ma'am, I don't know if you know this but you are on an island, in the water".
