In 2012, Saturday Night Live hired comedian Josh Patten to write for its beloved "Weekend Update" — and the rest is now history. Patten, already a popular political jokester on Twitter, has showcased his comedic prowess during Donald Trump's presidency by trolling him in the most creative ways possible. Patten recently shared his "incredibly stupid" habit of replying back to President Trump's often erratic and off-the-wall tweets as if they were text messages sent directly to him.
