Donald Glover pulled double duty this weekend on Saturday Night Live as guest host and musical performer.

In one of his more memorable skits, Glover poked fun at Kanye West’s tweetstorm about President Donald Trump, with a spoof inspired by the horror film A Quiet Place.

In the bit called “A Kanye Place,” five friends are forced to keep quiet to hide from monsters that will attack them if they make any noise, just like in the movie.

The five characters – played by Glover and SNL regulars Cecily Strong, Kenan Thompson, Beck Bennett and Aidy Bryant – try to make it through a cornfield without talking.

Strong is the first to speak, admitting: “I’m so scared.” Bennett then shushes her, while Thompson reminds her: “Don’t let the monsters hear us. We have to be quiet.”

But then Glover notices something on his cellphone and has to tell everyone.

“You guys,” he whispers with excitement. “Kanye just tweeted.”

“David, shh!” Bryant snaps. But he keeps talking, anyway.

“He said he would have voted for Trump,” Glover whispers loudly.

Strong can’t believe what she’s hearing and asks: “What?! Seriously?! When?!”

Thompson gets the group to momentarily quiet down. But then Glover notices Kanye has tweeted again, causing Glover’s eyes to get really big when the rapper posts a picture of a “Make America Great Again” hat signed by the president.

“Kanye has the hat and everything. And Trump signed it. He signed the hat y’all!” Glover whispers.

Thompson wants proof and insists on seeing the phone. Once he takes a look, he can’t believe his eyes and yells: “Oh come on Kanye!”

Unfortunately, the monsters pounce and he disappears.

At another point, Glover notices Kanye is  at Chrissy Teigen’s house for her baby shower.

“No Kanye. Leave Chrissy Teigen out of this!” Strong says before she gets snatched by the monsters.

Bryant then listens to Kanye’s new track right before Bennett throws the phone into the corn field.

But she wants to know if her ears are deceiving her, and whispers: “I need to know if he said poopity scoop!”

Moments later, she runs into the field to retrieve the phone and yells, “He said poopity scoop!”

That’s when she becomes monster meat.

Fast forward to Sunday, and West appeared to be amused by the skit.

He tweeted a link to the video, complete with laughter and flame emojis.

Looks like Kanye is a fan.
