Weekend Update’s Colin Jost Takes Gina Carano and Morgan Wallen Controversies Deadline

Former President Donald Trump’s acquittal may have made headlines on Saturday morning, but the impeachment trial only took part of SNLWeekend update segment.

Anchor Colin Jost said the trial, which led senators to pass Trump’s acquittal for inciting the violent Jan. 6 insurgency, “must be the dumbest trial I’ve ever seen” . While Jost pointed out that “the trial took place at the scene of the crime,” Che noted that he added his own pennies for the trial, which featured videos of the attempted insurgency.

“A piece of black history – just because there is violence that men don’t mean you are going to be sentenced,” Che said, referring to the countless recorded incidents of police brutality that are often went unpunished.

However, other notable moments in the final segment of the Weekend Update was when Jost picked up some of the week’s most controversial titles in pop culture.

First he took the country singer and the previous ones SNL performer Morgan Wallen, who has since received backlash from social media and collaborators for saying the n-word. Although he was dropped by WME among a host of other consequences, Wallen received good news as his album sales soared following his racial insult controversy.

The growing popularity of Wallen’s music only proves “my long-held theory that if NBC just let me say (the n-words), the ratings would go up,” Jost joked.

He also took pictures at The Mandalorian star Gina Carano, whom Lucasfilm and UTA abandoned after her anti-Semitic remarks. However, the anchor of the weekend update didn’t think that Star wars the franchise was best placed to criticize Carano.

“Yeah, I don’t know if Star wars is the authority on what is anti-Semitic, ”he said, referring to Watt’s controversial conception of The phantom menace. “If it’s not Nazi propaganda, I don’t know what it is.”

Che and Jost also faced off against Qanon, Valentine’s Day, and more. See the clips below.
