Deflategate and Donald Trump are the gifts that keep on giving for Saturday Night Live.

Saturday night the weekly show used a combination of both the President-elect and the controversy involving the Patriots to get a laugh, with “Weekend Update” co-host Michael Che introducing the news item involving Russia reportedly helping Trump with the election thanks to some strategic hacking.

“Who snitches when somebody cheats for them. That’s just ungrateful,” Che said. “You don’t expect Tom Brady to tell the ref, ‘Hey, let me try that touchdown pass again. The ball was deflated.’ I guess Donald Trump was just acting like a Patriot.”
