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 homes.]
Colin Jost: Welcome to Weekend Update, home edition.. I’m Colin Jost.
Michael Che: I’m Michael Che.[Cut to Colin Jost. There’s a picture of Donald Trump at left side.]
Colin Jost: Well, you know things are going well when “Don’g drink bleach” is trending nationally after a president’s speech. After a doctor said that coronavirus dies quickly in the sunlight, president Trump asked if they could bring the light inside the body. I’m pretty sure bring the light inside the body is what they chanted at Jones town before drinking poison. Then president clean suggested injecting disinfectant into your body to cure the virus. Experts call the idea “A stroke of genius,” minus the “Of genius” part.[Cut to Michael Che. There’s a picture of Donald Trump at right side.]
Michael Che: Trump laid a backtrack and said he was just being sarcastic which is just what you say when you know you’ve said something terrible. And you know Colin, speaking of terrible, you know how when a kid has really bad parents, somebody steps in and they have to go live with another family, right?.
Colin Jost: Sure.
Michael Che: You think it’s possible another country could come take custody of us, maybe? I mean, just until our government gets back on its feet. Somewhere stable like, Germany or Japan or Nigeria. Or even Iraq. I’ll take Iraq now. Don’t they owe us a favor anyway? Didn’t we like, kill their dad when they were in trouble? I’m being sarcastic, obviously.[Cut to Colin Jost.]
Colin Jost: A man in Ohio was seen protesting ‘stay-at-home’ orders while wearing an American flag and a diaper. Said the man, “We need to re-open the [makes pressure sound] eeeeee-conomy. And fun fact, if American flag and a diaper are struck by lightening, they create a Shawn Hannity.[Cut to Michael Che. There’s a picture of a protester with a gun at right side.]
Michael Che: You know, it’s funny that all the people protesting the stay-at-home order live in places where there’s nowhere to go anyway. I mean, I get why like, Vegas or Miami would want to open up. I mean, cocaine ain’t going to cut itself. But if you’re protesting in rural Texas or South Carolina, where else would you even be, Earl? Besides Walmart and your basement which is pretty much still open. Also, who are all these guns supposed to scare? The virus? The nurses? The police? It’s crazy now these red necks– excuse me, red states are always talking that support the troops and blue lives matter [bleep]. But then, they’re so quick to bring out their guns whenever their country wants something from them. I mean, how is that patriotic? That’s like saying, “I love my wife, but I keep a gun under my pillow just in case.”[Cut to Colin Jost. There’s a picture of
Colin Jost: Texas lieutenant governor Dan Patrick is urging his state to completely reopen saying, “There are more important things than living,” which is actually the slogan for the KFC $20 fill up menu.[Cut to Michael Che.]
Michael Che: A growing number of anti-vaxxers are changing their minds about vaccinations in the wake of the coronavirus. Because, anit-vaxxers are worried that if they get the virus, they may not get the chance to breastfeed their teenagers.[Cut to Colin Jost. There’s a picture of Rudy Giuliani at left side.]
Colin Jost: Rudy Giuliani appeared in the FOX News this week and said something so stupid, it was almost presidential. But all I really wanna know is, why does Rudy look like Mickey Rooney in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s?” Is he so mad about coronavirus that he’s actually turning into a racist asian stereotype?
