'Weekend Update' rips Trump, the Mooch


Jost began with "Well, it's been a insane year these past few weeks", but there was little they did that couldn't have been held with equal currency until a September premiere for Saturday Night Live.

"Weekend Update: Summer Edition" runs through the end of the month.

But when it came to the successes of President Donald Trump's administration, the SNL cast brought the two Trump sons in to help spin.

Among the political topics Jost and Che covered specifically were immigration policy - who knew Lady Liberty had gotten so picky about guys, quipped Che - Kim Jong Un threatening Guam, the NAACP's Missouri travel advisory, and the Baltimore Police Dept. planting drugs on suspects.

Che went on to ask the former White House communications director about his limited time in the position.

"Weekend Update: Summer Edition" airs locally on WKYC Channel 3.

Bill Hader popped in as Anthony "the Mooch" Scaramucci, who tried to clean up his dirty mouth for prime time after that infamous New Yorker interview. "He said, son, go out there and tell the truth". I'd have preferred David Ortiz listing favorite foods, but that's just me.

While Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" segment is the epitome of fake news, the jokes often hit awfully close to home.

Leslie Jones stopped by to show off her "Michelle Obama arms", sound off on gym etiquette and explain that she's working out for herself. Probably that does not include Alec Baldwin, but Melissa Villaseñor might be wise to try getting a couple characters or impressions vetted by the American people when she isn't competing with Kate McKinnon for screentime.

With the threat of nuclear war in the headlines, it's nice that "Weekend Update" is around for the summer to add a little more levity to a news cycle that is full of fire and fury.

The weekly comedy show is on hiatus during the summer, but 2017 is just too juicy.
