Michael Che[Starts with Weekend Update intro]
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: 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 Taylor Swift at left top corner.]
Well, guys, I think the lesson we all learned this week is never break up with Taylor Swift. Or she will sing about you for 10 minutes on national television. At the very least, return the scarf.[Picture changes to Steve Bannon]
But in real news, I don’t really know what’s real anymore, ex Trump advisor Steve Bannon seen here moments after shooting out of a sewage pipe, sorry, I should use this full name, Stephen K. Bannon, the K stands for three Ks, was indicted this week for contempt of Congress. And convicted Bannon would face up to two years in prison which from the looks of him might be a life sentence.[Cut to Michael Che. There’s a picture of Kyle Rittenhouse at right top corner]
Michael Che: Legal experts are saying that Kyle Rittenhouse crying on the stand as he described how he shot his victims will help him with the jury. Man, is there a white tears law school that I don’t know about? I noticed that every time you all get in trouble, you start crying and everything just works out for you whether you’re trying to beat a murder charge or trying to be a Supreme Court justice.
Colin Jost: Prosecutors have asked a judge to send Jacob Chancellor, the January 6 and surgeon known as the QAnon shaman to 51 months in prison. They chose that because five plus one equals six. 666 is the mark of the beast. 6+6+6 is 18, minus 1 for one nation under God equals 17. And the 17th letter of the alphabet is, say it with me, Q. It almost makes too much sense.[Cut to Michael Che. There’s a picture of Britney Spears at right top corner.]
Michael Che: [to Colin Jost] There’s something wrong with you, man. A judge on Friday officially ended Britney Spears conservatorship after 13 years. Media is very excited that she’s back on her feet so they can knock her right back down again.[Picture changes to Josh Hawley]
Senator Josh Hawley, whose middle name is “I’m actually” said in a speech that after years of being told their manhood is the problem, men are turning to pornography and video games, which is not true. I also drink.[Cut to Colin Jost. There’s a picture of Elon Must at left top corner.]
Colin Jost: Elon Musk sold nearly $5 billion in Tesla stock after he pulled his followers on Twitter and they told him to do it. Which is good news because the polls other option was kill a drifter.[Cut to Michael Che. There’s a picture of news article that says “Mask mandate ban violates Americans with disabilities act” at right top corner.]
Michael Che: A judge ruled that Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s executive order banning mass mandates in school violate the Americans with disabilities act. Because in Texas, you have to treat the disabled with care and respect until the day you execute them.[Picture changes to a group of people wearing Santa Claus costumes]
I don’t know why I thought that make you laugh. It was announced that New York City Santa Con, which was cancelled last year will return this December. So, the answer is nothing. The pandemic taught us nothing.
