Trump tweets praise of

Kanye West on SNL

President Donald Trump has panned Saturday Night Live's season premiere but tweeted praise for Kanye West on the show.

Saturday's show opened with Matt Damon playing Brett Kavanaugh in a parody of Thursday's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on sexual assault claims.

As the show ended, West took the stage wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat and made an unscripted pro-Trump speech after the credits rolled.

Trump tweeted Sunday: "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!"
