Cold Open SNL Teases Trump’s Visit To East Palestine As James Austin Johnson’s Donald Says ‘Pete Buttigieg Is Too Busy Being Gay’ And Rantes About Rihanna Along With New Grand Jury BFF Emily Kohrs
- Fake Trump mocked Pete Buttigieg, Rihanna and Emily Kohrs
- He joked about handing out ‘cold McDonald’s’ to residents of East Palestine.
- Johnson also said Joe Biden was ‘on spring break in the Ukraine’
Saturday Night Live covered former President Donald Trump’s visit to the disaster in East Palestine, Ohio, during its chilly premiere this week.
The fake Trump, played by cast member James Austin Johnson, gave a press conference mocking Pete Buttigieg and eventually brought in Georgia grand jury chief Emily Kohrs.
“Hello, it’s wonderful to be here in eastern Palestine… not a great name,” Johnson’s Trump opened, mispronouncing the city’s name to sound like the state of Palestine.
He then joked that incumbent President Joe Biden was “on spring break in the Ukraine with his friend Zelensky in his jersey, very disrespectful.”
Johnson’s strange Trump later recalled a chance meeting when “a farmer came up to me, a big guy, and said, ‘Sir, we don’t have anything to eat because our dirt is poison.’ And I said, ‘Well, what are you doing eating the dirt? Don’t eat the earth, folks! You should be eating the cold McDonald’s I bought you.

The print tends to mimic how Trump goes off on a tangent about celebrities at times. When he described the rivers in eastern Palestine as ‘colorful’, he began calling them ‘Fenty Beauty Water’ in reference to Rihanna’s fashion line.
