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: Thank you. 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 Donald Trump and some papers at left top corner.]
President Trump authorized the release of a memo that claims the FBI improperly spied on his campaign despite warnings from the FBI and the Department of Justice that the memo was inaccurate. Coz if anyone’s concerned with accuracy, [Picture changes to Donald Trump playing tennis] it’s Mr. 239 pounds.[Picture changes to Devin Nunes]
This memo came from a 40 year old virgin Devin Nunes who is chairman of the House of Intelligence Committee. I gotta say, I don’t really trust this guy to untangle a vast conspiracy. I wouldn’t really trust him to untangle a pair of headphones. Now, I’m trying to put myself in his shoes and it’s pretty easy coz his shoes are velcro, but I don’t really understand how any of this is important. So, I’m just gonna treat this memo like every other memo I’ve received at work and completely ignore it. At this point, if you actually want to get my attention, the bar is set at, “Pornstar spanks president with magazine.” Also, this is a four page memo that just cherry picks information from FISA document that’s like, 50 or 60 pages long. It’s like, when you see a blurb for “Transformers 5” and it says, “It blew my mind…” when the full quote is, “It blew my mind that god allowed this.”[Cut to Michael Che. There’s a picture of Donald Trump and some papers at right top corner.]
Michael Che: First of all, you know damn well Donald Trump didn’t read this memo. It’s four pages long. And the only time Donald Trump reads four pages in a row is when he’s ordering breakfast. [Picture changes to Donald Trump looking at the menu.] And to prove it, here’s an actual clip of Donald Trump explaining the memo.[Cut to Donald Trump in a press conference]
Donald Trump: But I think it’s a disgrace what’s happening in our country. And when you look at that and you see that and so many other things what’s going on, um, lot of people should be ashamed of themselves and much worse than that.[Cut back to Michael Che]
Michael Che: Listen to him stammer. He sounds like Colin when I asked him if his family ever owned slaves.[Cut to Colin Jost. There’s a picture of Donald Trump at State of the Union at left top corner.]
Colin Jost: Can we have this conversation off camera? President Trump gave his first State of the Union address on Tuesday and received mostly positive reviews. But that’s only because we expect so little from Trump at this point that when he behaves even remotely human, we’re all really impressed. It’s sort of like when you see a video of a rat taking a shower and you think, “Aw, look, he’s doing human stuff.”[Cut to Michael Che. There’s a picture of Ruth Ginsberg at right top corner.]
Michael Che: Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg did not attend the State of the Union. Unfortunately, she was caught up in a stiff wind. [Picture changes to Ruth Ginsberg holding a flag stand while wind is carrying her away.] [Picture changes to Donald Trump entering the chamber]
As president Trump entered the chamber for the State of the Union, members of the Congressional Black Caucus remain seated in protest. [Picture changes to a group of people looking upset sitting at the chamber] They were mostly silent with an occassional, “Umgh!” Look at all these angry black faces. They look like my grandmother’s church after the choir directly came out of the closet.[Cut to Colin Jost. There’s a picture of Donald Trump and his tweet at left top corner.]
Colin Jost: President Trump also tweeted that he had the highest ratings ever for State of the Union address which, get this, wasn’t true. And this time, even FOX News fact checked on him. [Picture changes to FOX News tweet that has numbers.] You know you’re running your mouth too much when even your hype man is like, “You know, that ain’t exactly accurate though.”[Michael Che laughing hard] [Picture changes to Donald Trump at an interview]
Michael Che: That one’s good.
Colin Jost: Oh, thank you. Then in a new interview, president Trump stated that he is not a feminist. Was he getting accused of that a lot?[Cut to Michael Che. There’s a pictures of Jay-Z and Donald Trump at left top corner.]
Michael Che: After Jay-Z criticized president Trump’s vulgar comments about African nations, Trump responded with, [Cut to Donald Trump’s tweet] “Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!” [Cut to Michael Che] Yeah, but because of Obama. Not the awful jobs that you brought in. Black people ain’t trying to sling coal. Trump is just appropriating Obama’s success. It’s no different than white woman taking credit for, “Yas Queen.”
