Saturday Night Live's Michael Che introduced the new game "Trumpemon Go" on Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention. 

During MSNBC's "Weekend Update" segment hosted by Che and Colin Jost, Che stood on the floor of the convention, "playing America's hottest new mobile app where you've got to catch the rarest creature of them all: minorities at the RNC."

Playing Trumpemon Go, Che walked around the convention floor trying to find black people at the GOP's event, or "as Trump would always say, let's round up some brown people." 

The video even featured a cartoon version of Donald Trump with the game's "slogan": "Catch 'em all. Get 'em outta here."

Kate McKinnon also appeared during the "Weekend Update" segment, reprising her Ruth Bader Ginsburg character from SNL. Watch the Trumpemon Go segment below.
