Saturday Night Live Weekend Update visited the Republican National Convention to crack jokes and poke fun. Update co-host Michael Che — not to be confused with fellow cast member Jay Pharoah — played Trumpemon Go, a harsh reality game inspired by Pokemon Go in which Che tries to catch all the minorities at the convention.
Love the Cowbro, bro. That’s gotta be a NathanFillion points right there. Mistaking that dude from Duck Dynasty as an Amish guy hand-delivered me a bucket of chuckles. Colin Jost pointing out Aladdin on the promo banner made me think of the song “A Whole New World”, which is fitting since Donald Trump might just bring us one.
Of course, the comments section is a bloodbath. Friggin’ libs! Lame stream media! Claims of racism against whites. I don’t normally get involved in politics, but when I do, it’s to applaud some funny as f*ck stuff. If you don’t find an ounce of humor in the fact that Donald Trump – the guy who drove the USFL into the ground and was the figurehead of a celebrity workplace show called The Apprentice – might be our next President, then you, sir or madam, are not a person I want to party with.

Cue commenters with “SNL hasn’t been funny in 15 years”. Is every segment of every show hilarious? No. Do they unearth at least one gem per episode? Yes. Check out Kate McKinnon as Ruth Bader Ginsburg doling out Ginsburns to politicians and try not to be a Debbie Downer.
Of course, the biggest irony would be if an outsider like Trump wins the election and actually kills it in office. At that point, I think we’re legally able to deport all dirtbag politicians to Jupiter.
