(Newser) – You wouldn't know it by President Trump's Twitter feed Sunday morning, but Saturday Night Live returned to the airwaves Saturday night, with Alec Baldwin reviving his impression of the commander in chief responding to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico, reports the Hill. In speaking with the mayor of San Juan, Baldwin says, "Trust me, I know things are as the locals say 'Despacito,' but we're going to get more help to you immediately, probably either Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest. FEMA takes a few days, unless you join FEMA Prime." Then: "Ma'am I don't know if you know this, but you're in an island in the water. The ocean water, big ocean, with fishies and water and turtles that bite. We want to help you but we've got to take care of America First." Jay-Z was the show's musical guest, notes the Hill, and performed wearing a Colin Kaepernick jersey. (Read more Saturday Night Live stories.)
