Announcer: “Weekend Update” with Colin Jost and Michael Che.[Cut to Colin Jost and Michael Che in news set]
Colin Jost: Hi, everybody.
Michael Che: Welcome to Weekend Update. I’m Michael Che.
Colin Jost: I’m Colin Jost. [Cut to Colin Jost. There’s a picture of Donald Trump in the left top corner of the screen] Well, this last week was a pretty bad year for Donald Trump. Think about what’s currentily under investigation for him. Trump’s campaign, his transition, his inauguration, his business and his presidency. So everyone check your cards, because you might have [The picture changes to a bingo game] impeachment bingo. In fact, [The picture changes back to Trump] Trump has reportedly told people close to him that he’s worried he will get impeached. And by people close to him, I, of course, mean [The picture changes to Sean Hannity] Sean Hannity and [A picture of KFC logo appears] Colonel Sanders. [The picture changes back to Trump] This is a lot of legal trouble for any president. I mean I’m not lawyer but neither is [The picture changes to Michael Cohen] Trump’s lawyer. This week Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison and he claimed he only committed his crimes out of a blind loyalty to Trump but Cohen was clearly a crook before he met Donald Trump. You know how I know? He was hired by Donald Trump. The only questions on a Trump job application are [Picture changes to a job applications with two questions] do you do crimes? And wanna do more?[Cut to Michael Che. There’s a picture of Donald Trump’s tweet at the right top corner of the screen]
Michael Che: President Trump responded to Michael Cohen’s sentencing by tweeting – [Cut to the full screen of tweet] “I never directed Michael Cohen to break the law.” That’s my Trump. “He was a lawyer and he is supposed to know the law.” [Cut to Michael Che. There’s a picture of Donald Trump at the right top corner of the screen] Fair, but you know who else is supposed to know the law? The frigging president of the United States! I can’t get past that. I mean, the pope should know the bible. Santa should know the meaning of Christmas. The president should know the law. Dude, we’re paying you money for this. Am I bugging? Am I crazy?[Cut to Colin Jost. There’s a picture of inaugural committee event in the left top corner of the screen]
Colin Jost: Not because of this. Federal prosecutors in New York are investigating whether president Trump’s inaugural committee some of the $107 million they raised for the event, which I assume they blew on Photoshop. [The pictures has a lot more people in the event now] [Cut to Michael Che. There’s a picture of Donald Trump and Michael Cohen at the right top corner of the screen]
Michael Che: I mean he’s the president. He’s got to know the law. Doctors know medicine. Araby’s know he meat. If I tell you I’m an astronaut and you ask me about the moon and I say “The moon?” It’s been confirmed that Trump was in the room with Michael Cohen and the publisher of the ‘National Enquirer’ when they discussed covering up Trump’s alleged affairs. Which alleged affairs is a very dignified way to say raw dog and porn stars.[Cut to Colin Jost. There’s a picture of budget meeting in the left top corner of the screen]
Colin Jost: President Trump also held a contentious budget meeting at the White House this week with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. If you missed it, just go to a Denny’s and watch three grandparents fight over the check. [The picture changes to Trump and Schumer] After the meeting Schumer said that Trump “Lives in a cocoon of his own mistruth”. Dude, just call him a liar. Democrats keep using this flowery language. They forget they’re talking to a country where most people share their opinion through pictures of fire [Picture changes to fire emoji] or a dukie with eyeballs. [Picture changes to poop emoji] [Cut to Michael Che. There’s a picture of Chris Christie at the right top corner of the screen]
Michael Che: Former New Jersey governor Chris Christie has taken himself out of the running to be the performant White House Chief of Staff. Also taking Chris Christie out of the running, side cramps.
Colin Jost: A new poll shows the front funner for the 2020 democratic nomination is Bet Rorke, followed by [Picture changes to Joe Biden] Joe Biden, then [Picture changes to Bernie Sanders] Bernie Sanders and then [Picture changes to Oparah] Oparah, then [Picture changes to Lena Dunham] Lena Dunham and then the [Picture changes to Porno Lawyer] Porno Lawyer, and then [Picture changes to a Chai Latte in a pants suit] a Chai Latte in a pants suit, and then [Picture changes to a DVD boxed set of ‘A West Wing’] a DVD boxed set of ‘A West Wing’ and my personal favorite, [Picture changes to Barack Obama in a mustache] Barack Obama in a mustache.
