SNL is back and better than ever. In the first "cold open" of the season, Alec Baldwin returned, cotton candy wig, orange skin and perfect "Trump" scowl. They skewered Trump hard regarding Puerto Rico, with an assist from Sarah Huckleberry Sanders, Jeff Sessions and Chuck Schumer.

Some gems:

Trump golfing while the entire country of Puerto Rico is in a humanitarian crisis with a lack of water, food, medicine or electricity: "Sometimes when you are President*, you have to make I skipped the back nine"

FEMA: "FEMA takes a few days, unless you joined FEMA Prime"

Islands: "I don't know if you know this, but you are in an island in the water. The ocean water, big ocean. With fishes and bubbles and turtles that bite." (this may be pretty close to a direct quote, actually).

Sessions sitting on Trump's lap and making faces like he's a ventriloquist dummy.

Trump will definitely be rage-tweeting about this at 4am.
