SNL Mocks Trump's Inauguration Crowd: 'If You're Going To Lie, Don't Make It So Obvious'

'Saturday Night Live' didn't feature Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump this week but that doesn't mean the NBC sketch comedy series didn't take a jab at the new President.

In fact, SNL hit Trump about the size of the crowd at this inauguration after he boasted about the numbers at his inauguration and even had his White House press secretary Sean Spicer rail against reporters about the topic.

In the sketch Beck Bennett played shirtless Russian President Vladimir Putin as he addressed Trump.

"I thought you would be better than this," said Putin with a comparison shot of the crowd present at Trump's inauguration compared to Obama's.

"If you're going to lie don't be so obvious," he said. "Say you’re friends with LeBron James not that you are LeBron James."

Putin also criticized Trump's speech as "bleak."

"Trust me, I know bleak," he said. "Every day I wake up in Russia."
