Last night, Ex-President Donald Trump was roasted on Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update after claiming that his supporters were “hugging and kissing” police during the deadly riot at the U.S. The Capitol.
In the segment, co-anchor Colin Jost claimed that Trump “lied” about the riot that killed several people, including a police officer, in a recent Fox News interview.
According to Jost, Trump’s supporters “were not attacking officers but were instead hugging and kissing police,” “But I’m not surprised that Donald Trump can’t tell the difference between kissing and assault,” he continued.
When discussing photos showing Joe Biden using a cheat sheet during his first press conference as president, Jost took another shot at Trump.
“I gotta say, it’s easy to make fun of Biden’s cheat sheets, but they worry me a lot less than Trump’s cheat sheets. Do you remember those?” Jost said.
He then mentioned some notes Trump was photographed with during his presidency, including one that said “missile was launched from N. Korea—will take care of it.”
“And of course, this classic: “I want nothing, I want nothing, I want no quid pro quo”… which I think were rap lyrics from the Legally Blonde musical,” Jost added.
Jost and co-anchor Michael Che also weighed in on the gun control debate in the aftermath of deadly mass shootings in Atlanta and Boulder, Colorado.
“In the wake of the Colorado and Atlanta shootings, President Biden called for universal background checks for gun purchases,” Jost said.
“And background checks are a good start, but shouldn’t we also do current checks? Like, what are these guys up to now? How much ‘Call of Duty’ are they playing? Have they recently DMed a girl ‘hey’ 30 times? Or, how about this: If you want a gun, the gun store has to talk to at least five people in your life who agree it’s a good idea for you to have a gun.
Jost also urged Republicans to “stop pretending this is a Second Amendment issue and just admit you love guns more than people you don’t know.”
“If you actually cared about the Second Amendment, you’d also care about the part of the well-regulated militia. And I don’t know if you noticed when they almost hung you two months ago, but our militias aren’t super well-regulated,” he added.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about. I just bought a gun last summer when all those white kids started talking about getting rid of the police.” Che added.
He then made another joke about Biden’s press conference, pointing out that it lasted more than an hour.
“Wow, shout out to Fixodent!” remarked Che. “At the conference, President Biden was asked if he plans to run for re-election in 2024, which is probably the nicest way to ask him if he plans on being alive in three years.”
Che also commented on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s confirmation of plans to build an Instagram for children during a congressional hearing on misinformation.
“Wow, an app filled with pictures of just kids? What could possibly go wrong?” Che exclaimed, eliciting laughter from the audience.
