'SNL' Weekend Update jabs Biden on colonoscopy, peilinggetalle; Rittenhouse-verhoor, Liz Cheney het ook geteiken

Vrydag was 'n “vreemde een” vir Biden, Weekend Update mede-anker Colin Jost het boaan die fopnuus-segment gesê.

“Hy het onder verdowing gegaan vir 'n kolonoskopie, en toe hy wakker word het die Huis verby die $ 2 triljoen social safety net bill, the Rittenhouse verdict was announced and a woman had technically been president vir die eerste keer ooit. And while Biden was processing all that he was rushed off to pardon a turkey named Peanut Butter.

Jost noted that Biden had just turned 79.

Half the country already thinks he’s senile. You can’t drop all that on him the second he comes out of the gas,” hy het gesê.

The comic said he was surprisedhow well it wentfor Biden on Friday, reminding viewers of a viral 2009 YouTube video calledDavid After Dentistthat a parent took of a child still loopy from the gas after mouth surgery. Jost said he was surprised no one posted aBiden After Colonoscopy” video.

While talking about former President Trump adviser Steve Bannon surrendering to the FBI on contempt-of-Congress charges, Jost mentioned that Bannon had said, “We are taking down the Biden regime.

I hate to break it to you, Steve,” Jost responded, “but I think Biden’s got that covered all on his own– as a graphic showed the president’s falling poll numbers.



The show spent much of its political punch Saturday focused on Kyle Rittenhouse’s acquittal on murder charges after he shot and killed two people and hurt another during a Black Lives Matter protest and riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, laas jaar.

Hopefully he got all of that shooting out of his system before he becomes a cop,” co-anchor Michael Che joked.

Che also suggested to protesters who took to the streets Friday to decry the verdict: “Maybe don’t tempt himsince hejust got off on shooting protesters.

Jost took aim at U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz saying the congressman thought Rittenhouse would make a great congressional intern.

‘Cause Gaetz has always loved teenagers who are willing to do terrible things,” het hy geskerts, referencing accusations about Gaetz’s alleged involvement with a 17-year-old girl.

Earlier in the show, Rittenhouse trial Judge Bruce Schroeder (played by Mikey Day) leaned into liberal perceptions that he was conservatively biased. Day’s Schroeder claimed it wasstandard procedurethat he wouldn’t allow the men Rittenhouse shot to be called “slagoffers” and that instead of being shot they weregadoinked. He also referred to Rittenhouse as his “kliënt.”

Liz Cheney still a Republican?

A sketch later in the show calledRepublican or Not,” which depicted a fake game show where contestants had to guess if someone was conservative or liberal based on their statements, mocked U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney after the Wyoming GOP voted to no longer recognize her as a Republican.

But I am a Republican,” Cheney (Cecily Strong) argued after coming onto the game show and being told by host Kenan Thompson she isn’t one.

You might tell everybody that,” Thompson as the host laughed. “But it’s not what Republicans say. Like it or not you are the Rachel Dolezal of the Republican Party.Dolezal was a White professor who served as an NAACP chapter president and lied about being Black.

That was so cute,” Thompson said after Strong’s Cheney argued she had beenfighting for Republican values all my life.

He said he looked forward to seeing her onMSNBC in about a week.

“Shang-Chi en die legende van die tien ringe” star Simu Liu guest-hosted the episode and rapper Saweetie was the musical guest.
