President Trump is throwing in his two cents about Kanye West's controversial appearance on the Sept. 29 season premiere of Saturday Night Live.   

On Sunday, Trump reaffirmed on Twitter that he doesn't watch SNL and praised West for his decision to wear a Make America Great again hat during a post-show speech that was ultimately cut from the TV broadcast.      

"Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) - no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told “no”), was great. He’s leading the charge!" Trump wrote.   

   

VIP audience member Chris Rock documented West's political rant, which covered politics, Trump, his potential presidential run in 2020, and more. The clip eventually made its way online and naturally caused a stir on social media.   

"I want to cry right now," the rapper crooned into the mic. "Black man in America / Supposed to keep what you feel inside right now." He proceeded to comment on welfare and the president, who he's vocally supported since before the 2016 election.   

"There's so many times I talk to like a white person about this, and they're like, 'How could you like Trump? He's racist,'" he continued. "Well, uh, if I was concerned about racism, I would've moved out of America a long time ago."
