Not to step on the joke too much here, but what Lin Manuel-Miranda is saying is that Donald Trump threw away his shot.

After a Saturday Night Live opener ripped from the Saturday morning headlines — Alec Baldwin as Trump clumsily "apple-agized" for his hot-mic "locker-room talk" while Kate McKinnon's Hillary Clinton chugged champagne in celebration — the Hamilton creator took his rightful place on the SNL stage.

"It takes me seven years to write a show, so I don't know when I'm going to be back here again," Manuel joked, implying that yes, this was his own ... shot.

Cue Manuel-Miranda dashing through the audience, unfurling a lyrically updated version of "My Shot" from his hit show Hamilton, even stopping at a framed portrait of Trump in the hallway.

"Well, you'll never be president, you'll never be president," he taunted with a little dance, and was on his merry way.

Earlier in the opener, Baldwin-Trump spoke with CNN about his lewd comments from 2005 — the one gaffe that finally looks like it might get to him.

"I was just trying to look cool. I was trying to impress Billy Bush," Baldwin-Trump said, one of a flurry of excuses.

Of course, once his bizarre rant was over and the camera panned away, Trump was at it again.

"I wish that I was that hurricane," he said. "Tearing through all that hot Miami (inaudible). I would just destroy it."

Shots thrown.
