Steve Carell's Jeff Bezos Trolls Trump On 'Saturday Night Live' With 'Amazon Caravan'

Hundreds of immigrants will deliver packages to any Trump building, he said.

An amazingly convincing version of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos played by Steve Carell threw serious shade on President Donald Trump in a sly sketch on “Saturday Night Live.”

Carell’s Bezos managed to needle Trump that he was 100 times richer as he referred to Amazon’s recent decision to set up new dual headquarters in the Queens borough of New York City and in Arlington, Virginia.

“Some folks have speculated that I was somehow trolling President Trump by building one headquarters in his hometown of Queens and the other [near] his current residence of Washington, D.C., thereby overshadowing or humiliating him. But that’s simply not true,” Carell’s Bezos calmly explained.

He then displayed several humiliating Trump headlines in The Washington Post, which he owns — and announced his company’s latest post-office-free innovation: Amazon Caravan.

“Any package going to any Trump building will get delivered by hundreds of Honduran and Mexican immigrants and I’ll pick up the bill,” he explained, “unless you order [Trump’s book] The Art of the Deal ― that costs more to ship, because it’s heavier. I guess it’s the only book with four Chapter 11s.”

One last twist: The Virginia location will be close enough to Arlington National Cemetery that the company can “pay our respects to fallen veterans — even when it’s raining outside,” he said, referring to Trump’s canceled cemetery visit in France last weekend.

Check out the video of the sketch above, and see if you can recognize the hair the Amazon delivery drones will be wearing.
