‘Saturday Night Live’ mocks Trump’s microphone problem during first debate

“Saturday Night Live” mocked Republican nominee Donald Trump’s microphone problem during the first presidential debate in its season opener.

Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, blamed the issue on Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, played by Kate McKinnon.

“She broke it, with Obama. She and Obama stole my microphone,” he said. “They took my microphone to Kenya and broke it and now it’s broken.”

“Trump” added that his microphone was picking up Clinton’s sniffles.

“She’s been sniffing all night. “

“Secretary Clinton, what do you think about that?” Michael Che’s Lester Holt asked.

“I think I’m going to be president,” she responded.
