It wasn’t enough to host Donald Trump Shanivari Night Live During the beginning of his 2016 presidential campaign, but it was something.
As Colin Jost explained on this week’s show, “Except for a reverse Christmas miracle, this is the last ‘Weekend Update’ still in office with Donald Trump.”
“Now, as a president, he was mostly evil, but there were some bright spots,” the anchor continued when Cheers died. “So before it calms down and goes inside like a dinosaur Jurassic Park, I just want to take a moment to recognize some of my greatest moments in the office. “
At the same time, the “closing time” of the seminisic began to play and SNL Shared a strangely cathartic montage of the most embarrassing photos and videos of the 45th president captured in the last four years, from paper towels on storm victims to a disabled reporter and everything in between.
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened,” Jost said when it ended. “And then maybe a little cry. I don’t know, I’m still working with my therapist. “
From there, Jost and co-anchor Michael Che moved on to the coronovirus epidemic, which is harder than ever in the final weeks of Trump’s term.
“Mike Pence received the coronovirus vaccine on Friday, which is the first time he is recovering with security,” Che said. And then: “Mike Pence said that when he got the vaccine shot, ‘I don’t feel a thing,’ which he told himself repeatedly after seeing Harry Styles in that costume.”
Jost then indicated that the Trump White House has “distributed it to states” to deliver the vaccine. “Which shocks me because, knowing Trump, I thought it would be done through the live powerball lottery. The ratings would have been insane and it would have been the first White House job that Ivanka qualified for.”
Then, in a sure sign that so far SNL Ready to move on from Trump, Jost actually made a cruel joke about his successor.
” Wall Street Journal Dr. Jill Biden published an op-ed suggesting she should stop using the position of doctor because she has a PhD and is not a medical doctor, ”he said. “Although she has worked as a nurse many times.”
