Announcer: It’s Weekend Update with Colin Jost and Michael Che.[cheers and applause] [Cut to Colin Jost and Michael Che in their new set]
Colin Jost: Hi. Good evening everyone.
Michael Che: Welcome to Weekend Update. I’m Michael Che.
Colin Jost: I’m Colin Jost.[Cut to Colin Jost in his news set. There’s a picture of White House at left top corner.]
Well, the clock might be running out on Trump’s presidency. So, you know what that means. They’re finally putting in Rudy. [Picture changes to Rudy wearing a substitute jersey.] But instead of making a great play, this Rudy immediately tackled his own quarterback. [Picture changes to Donald Trump.] [Picture changes to Rudy Giuliani’s interview on FOX News.]
Giuliani appeared on FOX News and straight up admitted that Trump knew about the Stormy Daniels payment which is maybe the best confession I’ve seen on TV that didn’t end with “Created by Dick Wolf.” The Stormy Daniels payment has turned out to be the loudest hush money in history. And during his Kings of Dementia comedy tour, Giuliani also said that the hush money was “funneled through a law firm.” Dude, funneled is not typically a word innocent people use when talking about money. No one says, “Yeah, my grandma funneled me $5 on my birthday.”[Cut to Michael Che. There are picture of Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani and Michael Cohen at right top corner.]
Michael Che: Rudy Giuliani is claiming that president Trump only learned a week ago that he was reimbursing Michael Cohen’s payment to Stormy Daniels in $35,000 installments. I have a couple of questions. Like, what kind of billionaire pays for stuff in installments? You’re the president of the United States. Why are you paying for sex like it’s a nordictrack? And how did you all land on $130,000. That’s such an oddly specific number. I asked Stormy to come on Update and explain it but her agent said no because if she’s seen on camera with a black guy, her price goes down.[Cut to Colin Jost. there’s are pictures of Stormy Daniels and at left top corner.]
Colin Jost: That was so far. Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for Stormy Daniels said that he was speechless after Giuliani said that Trump reimbursed Michael Cohen. In fact Avenatti was so speechless that night, he only appeared on 20 shows on six different networks.
Michael Che: New York times has published a list of 49 questions that Robert Mueller reportedly wants to ask president Trump. The first one is, “Colluder says what? Ah!” Trump is calling this probe a trap but questions are only a trap if you’re lying. If you would ask your husband, “Where were you last night?” and he says, “Bitch, you trying to trap me?” He’s probably lying.[Cut to Colin Jost. There are pictures of Donald trump and Robert Mueller at left top corner.]
Colin Jost: And let’s just be clear about this. Trump and his legal team are clearly the ones who leaked these questions. And I figured out why. Trump’s been so desperate to find a decent lawyer that at this point he’s just crowdsourcing his legal strategy. He’s just throwing the Mueller questions out there like, “How do you guys think I should respond?” It’s basically the same strategy Lay’s use to pick a new potato chip flavor. Which could be a smart approach for Trump or he could end up like Lays with biscuits and gravy.[Cut to Michael Che. There’s a picture of FBI logo at right top corner.]
Michael Che: If I may ask the FBI directly, why is this taking so long? I mean, look at Trump’s team. You can’t beat them? They look like they have a commercial that goes, “Have you been hurt in a triple four? Even if you don’t have enough evidence, just frame them. Whatever happened to that? Are there different FBIs for white people and black people? Coz if the FBI was this incompetent against us, Martin Luther King would have died a lot later, peacefully in his bed on top of his mistress.[Cut to Colin Jost. There’s a picture of Harold Bornstein at left top corner.]
Colin Jost: This week, president’s former doctor who by the way I loved on “Twin Peaks” said that the 2015 letter which described Trump as the healthiest individual ever elected president was dictated by Trump himself. Which also explains why Trump’s blood pressure was listed as “Haters over losers.”[Picture changes to Ty Cobb]
White House lawyer Ty Cobb has announced that he will be stepping down at the end of May. Cobb will return to his old job of challenging you to a hot-air balloon race around the world.
