Carmichael also saved the slap in opening monologue: “Can you believe it’s been six days? … Doesn’t it feel like it happened years ago? Doesn’t it feel like it happened when we were all in high school? Like, it feels like it happened somewhere between Jamiroquai and 9/11.” Additionally, out in the open, Donald Trump spoke of James Austin Johnson about the slap as well, referring to Smith as a “hitch”: “I saw the slap. I enjoyed the slap. I was very impressed with my butt.”

Then Smith, returning to his seat, shouted from the audience, “Keep my wife’s name out of your mouth” and repeated it after Rock protested that the drilling was a joke.
