Colin Jost Skewers Matt Gaetz's Worst Supporters Ever On 'SNL'

“Weekend Update” co-anchor Colin Jost pummeled Florida GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz over his boast about who was supporting him amid sex trafficking allegations: Donald Trump, Georgia QAnon disciple Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green, and Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, who has been bashed for doing nothing during sexual assaults of members of his former university wrestling team. “Oh no. Did he think those were good character references? Who’s next?” scoffed Jost. “The ghost of Jeffrey Epstein?” Gaetz bragged about his support when he spoke Friday at the Women For America First summit. It’s a “nice change to see women pay for an hour with Matt Gaetz,” smiled Jost. Gaetz allegedly sent $900 via Venmo to an alleged sex trafficker, who then reportedly forwarded the same amount to young women in payments labeled ‘tuit...

'Weekend Update's' Colin Jost Does Scathing Takedown Of Look-Alike Matt Gaetz

“Weekend Update” co-anchor Colin Jost viciously skewered beleaguered Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), who even Jost admitted looks surprisingly like him.  “Representative Matt Gaetz, who looks like a caricature-artist drawing of me, is reportedly under investigation for an alleged sexual relationship with an underage girl — because Gaetz believes that only voters should have to show ID,”  quipped Jost. “It’s also being reported that Gaetz may have paid for sex with women he met online. That story has since been confirmed by his whole vibe,” Jost added. Gaetz is under  investigation for allegedly having sex with a minor and possible sex trafficking. He has also been accused of sex with prostitutes while high on ecstasy, and showing nudes of women he had sex with to colleagues on the House floor. ...

'SNL's' Bowen Yang Offers Incredibly Powerful Message Against Asian American Hate

“Saturday Night Live” cast member Bowen Yang began his bit on “Weekend Update” against Asian American attacks all attitude and eye rolls, but ended with a powerful message to “fuel up” and keep moving — together. Yang first dinged co-anchor Colin Jost for introducing him as the program’s “Asian American cast member.”  Jost responded: “That’s how you told me to introduce you.” “I set your ass up. It feels good,” Yang replied. But Yang got serious. “Things for Asians in this country have been bleak for the past two weeks — and all the weeks before that since forever,” he noted. He said he didn’t know what to say to help change “how insanely bad things are. If someone’s personality is ‘punch an Asian grandma,’ it’s not a dialogue. I have an Asian grandma. You want to punch her? There ain’t n...

'Saturday Night Live': Bowen Yang Addresses Rise in Anti-Asian Violence in Powerful Weekend Update Segment

Bowen Yang delivered a powerful message addressing the rise in anti-Asian violence on Saturday Night Live. The comic joined Colin Jost for a segment on Weekend Update, and opened up about what people can do to help. "Things for Asians in this country have been really bleak for the past two weeks," Yang shared. "And all the weeks before that since forever. But there's a lot of work to do." After sharing some joke suggestions about possible ways to help and places to donate, Yang got a bit more serious and explained why it's so hard for him to talk about the attacks."What can I say to help how insanely bad things are?" he asked. "If someone's personality is "Punch an Asian Grandma," it's not a dialogue. I have an Asian grandma, you want to punch her. There ain't no common ground." "Look, I c...
