SNL's Alex Moffat and Mikey Day respond to the Trump brothers' differing reactions to their "Weekend Update" impressions
Donald Trump Jr. seems to have found some humor in Day's impression, while Eric Trump complained last month to The Washington Post that Moffat gets him all wrong. "I’ve just assumed that Eric’s not a huge fan of the portrayal," says Moffat. "And I assume that Don Jr. is, because in his mind, it’s probably like, 'Oh yeah, that’s right. I am the smart one." Day adds: "We imagine Don Jr. laughing, hitting Eric on the shoulder: 'Look what they said about you…ha!'" ALSO: Anna Faris wasn't a fan of Abby Elliott's SNL impression of her.
