NBC will feature SNL "Weekend Update, Summer Edition"

NBC will feature SNL

Eric Trump (Alex Moffat) and Donald Trump Jr. Thank goodness we have more SNL to help us through it all. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks.

The rest of the appearances were non-political; Kenan played National Basketball Association newcomer Lonzo Ball's overbearing father LaVar, who tried to sell Colin on some big shoes and some even bigger lies, earning him the nickname "Black Trump". In November, he slammed the show as "one sided", claiming the show featured "nothing amusing at all".

"Saturday Night Live" is still on its summer hiatus, but the "Weekend Update" segment returned Thursday night to bring the laughs. The slimy, loose-lipped businessman from Long Island makes for comedy gold; he was only part of the Trump administration for ten days, but this early edition of SNL allows an opportunity to portray him.

The highlight of the night, and sure to be the water cooler topic of Friday, was Anthony Scaramucci (Bill Hader) FaceTiming into the show.

The show opened with jokes mocking Trump's threat Wednesday to rain "fire and fury" on North Korea. Co-anchor Colin Jost cited the upheaval surrounding the White House, saying that while he was unsure whether Trump had colluded with Russia, "He's definitely colluding with 'Dancing With the Stars'". "You look like a Jeff Dunham puppet" as the image of "Walter", Dunham's famous angry old man puppet, appeared on screen.

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

NBC noted it has not been three months since "SNL's" season finale on May 20, but it feels like a lifetime given the current news cycle.

"ISIS is on the ropes, the border has never been more secure, and the story of the summer..." You know how you miss me. So from now until the show's new season kicks off in October, Trump can take heart: there will be one-third less punchlines at his expense.
