“Dr. Ben Carson is a very special man. And for once I don’t mean that as an insult to the mentally challenged,” Trump, played by Darrell Hammond, said while introducing Carson at a campaign event.

“Donald and I are very different,” Jay Pharoah’s Carson responded. “We’re like night and day. Ebony and orangey.”

“I want to thank everyone who voted for me and apologize to everyone else for making your Facebook feed so, so annoying,” he told CNN’s Jake Tapper, played by Beck Bennett. “I mean, I love my supporters, but they’re too much. Right?”

The skit ended with a report of more violence at a Trump rally, with Carson “attacked by an angry mob that mistook him for a protester.”

“Guys, what did I say?” Hammond's Trump asks as Pharoah's Carson holds a "Trump Steak" over his eye. “Not this one.”
