In a Weekend Update Segment on SNL, Jones says she is unfazed by the nude photo leak in August.
At a certain point you stop being embarrassed and start being you. All they did was release some nude pics of me – which is nothing, because, I don’t know if you all know this about me, but I ain’t shy. I am very comfortable with who I am. I am an open book…Do you think some words on the internet can hurt me? I once had a crazy bitch try to beat me with a shovel at a bus stop because I took her spot on the bench. At a certain point you stop being embarrassed and start being you. And I have been me for 49 years. The only person who can hack me is me. And my firewall is a crazy bitch with a shovel.
Trump hosts SNL for the second time — the first time was in 2004. During the show’s opening monologue someone is heard screaming ‘Trump is a racist!’ The heckler turns out to be Larry David, who plays also Bernie Sanders in various skits. Referring to a Latino group that had offered anyone in the audience money to yell out, David says:
I heard if I yelled that they’d give me $5,000.
As a businessman I can respect that.
Other sketches includ a fast forward to a world in which Trump has become president and ‘made America great again’ and a remake of Drake’s Hotline Bling video, with new lyrics defending the rapper’s dancing, and Trump dancing as the ‘tax guy.’
