[Video] First Episode Of SNL’s “Weekend Update: Summer Edition” From Last Night

Saturday Night Live kicked off their “Weekend Update: Summer Edition” last night and they didn’t hold back on “The Mooch” and Trump. 

This was the first of four episodes of the special series and SNL alum Bill Hader returned to play Anthony Scaramucci “The Mooch”, the former White House communications director. The spin-off of the popular “SNL” news segment featured co-anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che chatting about some of the events that have gone on since it went on summer break.”I don’t know if you guys noticed, but there were some minor staffing changes at the White House,” Jost said, clearly referencing the Scaramucci, press secretary Sean Spicer and chief of staff Reince Priebus all being dismissed from Trump’s administrative staff in recent weeks. In addition to Bill Hader, Colin Jost and Michael Che they were joined by fellow cast members Alex Moffat, Mikey Day, Kenan Thompson, and Leslie Jones throughout the half-hour show. The show will return next Thursday for more laughs!
