Former "Saturday Night Live" cast member Norm Macdonald broke from his funny and often sports-related Twitter feed to get real on the 2016 presidential election. The Canadian — who said multiple times that he couldn't vote — poured out his thoughts Thursday morning, explaining why he thought Donald Trump connected with the working man and won.

MacDonald said that a construction worker would look at the boorish billionaire and think, "Hey, thats how I'd be if I hit it rich." He said that lots of people saw Trump battling against politicians on stage, and came off strong.
