The 44th season premiere of “Saturday Night Live" bombed with President Donald Trump, who on Sunday dismissed the politically charged show as “just a political ad for the Dems."

In a tweet, the president claimed he doesn’t watch the show where he’s routinely skewered.

"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," Trump tweeted. “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!" 

SNL’s season opener featured West as the musical guest, and actor Adam Driver as host. The cold-open skit skewered Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's defiant testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee — as did the "Weekend Update" segment, which also lobbed a few barbs at Trump.
