It took about five minutes for Donald Trump to be mentioned during the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday night.
Host Andy Samberg took a shot at the GOP presidential frontrunner during his opening monologue.
“Donald Trump is running for president — to the delight of uncles everywhere,” Samberg joked.
“Sure, Donald Trump seems racist,” he added, ending his thought there.
The former host of The Apprentice was not in attendance at the Emmys.
Samberg also took a jab at one of the Democratic presidential candidates.
“Is it just me, or does Bernie Sanders always look like his flight is delayed?” Samberg said.
Trump was also zinged by Julia Louis Dreyfus during her acceptance speech after winning Best Actress in a Comedy Series.
“What a great honor it must be for you to honor me tonight. I’m so sorry. Donald Trump said that,” Dreyfus said. “It’s getting trickier and trickier to satirize this stuff.”
Comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele also took a shot at the GOP while presenting Best Reality Competition Program.
The former Comedy Central Duo went back-and-forth about a reality “where people can’t seem to say two words without throwing each other under the bus” and a reality “where a panel of millionaires fight like sharks to be chosen by average middle-class Americans,” and a reality “where nobody is there for the right reasons.” Then Peele deadpanned to the camera: “But enough about the Republican national debate.”
