“Saturday Night Live” targeted White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during the late-night comedy sketch show’s season premiere.

“Mr. president, I gotta be honest. This is going to get way worse,” Aidy Bryant, playing Sanders, tells Alec Baldwin’s President Trump after a mock phone call with the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, in the show's cold open late Saturday.

“I like you Sarah, you’re a straight shooter. That’s why you’ve outlasted Sean Spicer, Scaramucci, Bannon, Priebus, Gorka, Flynn, Yates and Tom PriceThomas (Tom) Edmunds PriceZinke under federal investigation for speech to NHL team: report Overnight Health Care: Schumer calls for tying ObamaCare fix to children's health insurance | Puerto Rico's water woes worsen | Dems plead for nursing home residents' right to sue Senate confirms No. 2 spot at HHS, days after Price resigns MORE,” Baldwin says.

“Thank you sir,” Bryant replies. “I think it’s because folks listen to me because I’m no-nonsense, but I’m all nonsense.”

“Well, you handled that NFL thing just great,” Baldwin’s Trump says, referring to the controversy over the president’s criticism of professional football players who kneel in protest during the national anthem.

“Well, I’m a little embarrassed that I said it’s a ‘black and white issue,'” Bryant responds. “I should’ve said it’s a ‘black versus white’ issue.'”

“You know, I actually love football. I could’ve played. People say I remind them of an NFL player because I’m combative, I like to win and I may have a degenerative brain disease,” Baldwin says.
