‘SNL’ Weekend Update Tackles Tucker Carlson’s Trump Texts, Oscars, TikTok – Rolling Stone

Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update mocked Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s characterization of the Jan. 6 insurrection, as well as his revealing text messages about Donald Trump.

Carlson, joked Colin Jost, “released security footage from the January 6 attacks with the violence edited out and said it proves it was a peaceful gathering, which is like editing all the sex out of a porn video and saying it’s a short film about being a step mom.”

Co-anchor Michael Che then addressed Carlson writing of Trump, “I hate him passionately,” yet on his primetime show offering a friendly environment for election conspiracies.

“That must suck to go on TV, put on a smile and make friends with some psychotic bigot just because it’s good for the show. Anyway, back to you, Colin,” Che quipped to his colleague.

The pair then moved on to President Biden backing legislation to ban TikTok due to security concerns about users’ data. He supports it, Che said, “but only because Biden thinks TikTok is a gang member from his old neighborhood.”

Turning to Sunday’s Oscars, Jost noted that the motion picture academy did not approve Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s request to make an appearance. “But,” he continued, “they promise that ‘Volodymyr Zelenskyy’ will be how John Travolta pronounces ‘Viola Davis.’”

Jost also weighed in on the event’s new color scheme for 2023.


“Organizers said they changed the color of the arrival carpet from red to champagne so the mood would be more mellow. But I don’t know. Switching from red to champagne usually turns me into a full-on bitch,” he joked.

The Oscars were also the subject of SNL‘s cold open, with Bowen Yang making an appearance as Rep. George Santos, who joked that he had to leave to be “everyone everywhere all at once.”
