Bill Hader, Leslie Jones Stole the Show on SNL's Weekend Update

13 August 2017

The half-hour "Weekend Update: Summer Edition" will air live at 9 p.m. for the next four Thursdays on NBC.

Almost two weeks after Scaramucci was dismissed by Trump, Weekend Update: Summer Edition co-anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che enlisted the help of Saturday Night Live alumni Bill Hader to fill the role of The Mooch, and he did a attractive job of doing so.

Eric and Donald Trump Jr. stopped by the update desk to talk about all the really awesome things their father has done so far, until Eric brings up Donald Jr.'s alleged collusion with Russian Federation.

The return of Hader, who is an SNL legend, is probably what will be talked about the most in recaps of the episode. Thank goodness we have more SNL to help us through it all. The Trump Lego Hotel even had Batman checking in.

The show opened with jokes mocking Trump's threat Wednesday to rain "fire and fury" on North Korea.

In a statement to CNN , ReShape Medical said: "There is no responsibility that we take more seriously than patient safety". And in three of those reports, death occurred as soon as one to three days after the balloon was placed, the agency notes.

"Also, how did we at SNL miss Anthony Scaramucci?". Jost and Che spent extra time on this week's biggest story, the increasing tension between the US and North Korea, with Jost and Che getting their best knocks on Trump during this longer joke. "You look like a Jeff Dunham puppet" as the image of "Walter", Dunham's famous angry old man puppet, appeared on screen.

He went on to say that he would be more scared about the threats being traded back and forth between Kim Jong-Un and Donald Trump if they both "hadn't made so many insane claims in the past".

Bill Hader was the Mooch, Erik Trump was transfixed by a Fidget Spinner and Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update Summer Edition brought some of last season's political fever to this hot-weather month.

"I don't know if you guys noticed, but there were some minor staffing changes at the White House", said Jost.

"Weekend Update" has been featured on SNL in every single one of its 42 seasons.
