Saturday Night Live loves, loves to tackle politics. On Saturday night’s (October 31) Halloween episode, hosted by comedian John Mulaney, Jim Carrey reprised his role as Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and told a spooky tale about the looming election.
At one point, Ice Cube (Kenan Thompson) and Lil Wayne (Chris Redd) showed up to the White House each wearing a now-infamous red MAGA hat in a way to mock the two rappers for their alleged support of the current POTUS. They insinuated the only reason Cube got involved with Trump in the first place is because of money.
Upon seeing the skit, the N.W.A legend fired off a tweet in true Ice Cube fashion.
“Fuck you SNL,” he wrote alongside three laughing emojis on Sunday (November 1). “Trying to reduce me to greed.”

Cube raised a few eyebrows last month when Trump’s senior campaign advisor Katrina Pierson thanked him on Twitter for helping them with The Platinum Plan proposal, bringing to light his behind-the-scenes involvement with the administration.
The veteran MC/actor then appeared on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time and explained he was simply trying to work with anyone in power who could help bring his Contract With Black America (CWBA) initiative to fruition.
“The Platinum Plan is not my plan,” he told Cuomo. “I came up with Contract With Black America [CWBA]. I didn’t run to work with any campaign. Both campaigns contacted me. Both campaigns wanted to talk to me about the Contract With Black America … I didn’t run to nobody, so that was real misleading to me.
“You said I ran over to the Trump team instead of the Biden team and that’s just not true. I’m willing to work with both teams. I’m just working with whoever is willing to work with me.”
Unlike Lil Wayne and Lil Pump, who both vouched for Trump last week, Eminem is riding with Biden. On Monday (November 2), just one day before the big election, Slim Shady and the Biden-Harris campaign dropped a campaign ad using his 2002 “Lose Yourself” single.
