Steve Carell took on the role of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos on this week’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” to poke fun at President Trump’s long-standing feud with the online giant.
Donning a bald cap, Carell’s Bezos insisted that “everyone, except for the people who live there and the people who live in all the places we didn’t choose, is thrilled” about the future homes of the two new Amazon headquarters.
The locations in Arlington, Virginia, and New York’s Queens are familiar to Trump. Queens is the president’s hometown and Arlington is close to his new residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington.
Despite the coincidence, Carell’s Bezos promised this wasn’t an attempt to troll Trump.
“That’s simply not true,” he said. “I chose our locations because they were ideal for growing business, not just to make Donald Trump think about how I’m literally 100 times richer than he is.”
