SNL's 'Weekend Update' starts summer primetime run tonight

Those two are still grappling with a stilted awkwardness in their "Weekend Update" personas that make them both less engaging than they would otherwise be on their own.

"You can't threaten someone when you're sitting down", he said.

Jost also poked the president for making his controversial "fire and fury" comment regarding North Korea while seated, quipping, "Even FDR stood up when he was talking tough". Che, meanwhile, found his sweet spot in the midst of a long analogy about how the Statue of Liberty had gotten "bougie" lately, which ended with, "Bitch, you ain't China!" Oddly, the best joke of the night was Moffat as Eric Trump, aah-ing over a fidget spinner, maybe because it barely had to be written at all: Moffat just stared at it, while Day (as Donald Jr.) spun it for him. They were vindicated, and got a killer performance from Hader, who appeared by interrupting Michael Che with a "FaceTime call". (Mikey Day) joined the news anchors to summarize the last few months.

Some fans expressed hopes that Scaramucci would be played by Bill Hader, who left SNL in 2013 after eight seasons.

But fake Donald Jr. - much like real Donald Jr. - insisted the story was a "nothing burger".

"Once you just start doing it you kinda just get in the rhythm of the show again and it becomes a show", said Che. It's like on To Catch a Predator...

"My father's presidency has been a resounding success and i will be cleared of any wrongdoing by a grand jury", he said.

"Everybody loves The Mooch", he said.

The rest of the show was a quick run through the summer's biggest hits, including Lavar Ball, "Will and Grace", "The Emoji Movie" and Leslie Jones and her "Michelle Obama arms".
