VIDEO: SNL's Putin Mocks Trump's Inauguration Crowd Size in Cold Open

Tonight’s Saturday Night Live cold open featured Russian President Vladimir Putin (played by SNL cast member Beck Bennett) taking a jab at U.S. President Donald Trump‘s inauguration crowd size, comparing it to the 2017 Women’s March crowd size.

Donald, let’s talk as friends,” Beck‘s Vladimir said. “You’re not off to a great start, man. I thought you’d be better at this.”

“However, I’m glad to see so many people showed up at your inauguration,” he added as a photo of Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington flashed on the screen.

“Oh wait, that’s the Women’s March. Here is inauguration,” he went on, showing another photo.

As you probably know, Donald reportedly made false claims about his inauguration crowd size, saying the media lied.

“Today, you went to the CIA and said 1 million people came to see you in Washington, D.C.?” Beck‘s Vladimir continued. “If you’re going to lie, don’t make it so obvious. Say you are friends with Lebron James, not that you are Lebron James.”
