SNL stars lampoon Trump sons on Weekend Update

"Saturday Night Live Weekend Update anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che

Hader also wasn't particularly amusing while playing up Scaramucci's goomba persona, so maybe it's for the best that "The Mooch" only lasted 11 days.

Weekend Update has only rarely tried to put the "live" in Saturday Night Live anyway, so canned and reheated monologue leftovers don't feel that unusual coming from Che and Jost, whose jokes were mostly the stuff of Twitter from last week and perhaps as recently as Tuesday, rather than offering any immediacy. "Even FDR stood up when he was talking tough".

If "Saturday Night Live's" enduring " segment is your cup of tea, then a standalone summer edition will be a welcome respite.

As summer programming goes, Weekend Update Summer Edition probably costs nothing to make and will deliver better-than-filler ratings for NBC, so it's bound to be a small victor.

The weekly comedy show is on hiatus during the summer, but 2017 is just too juicy.

"When did the Statue of Liberty get so bougie?" he asked. "Da Mooch!" - calling in via FaceTime, and the desk hosted a visit from first sons Eric (Alex Moffat) and Donald Trump Jr.

"Missing Scaramucci was sort of like missing Christmas", Jost told NBC News, adding "there's always a chance" the former White House communications director might pop in. (Mikey Day) joined the news anchors to summarize the last few months.

Eric and Donald Trump Jr. stopped by the update desk to talk about all the really fantastic things their father has done so far, until Eric brings up Donald Jr.'s alleged collusion with Russian Federation.

"The whole story is a nothing burger", Don Jr. responded. It's like on To Catch a Predator...

"Guy shouldn't get in trouble because nothing happened!"

"All I did was sell my company, miss the birth of my child and ruin my entire reputation, all to be king of Idiot Mountain for 11 days", he said.

"Everybody loves The Mooch", he said.

The rest of the show was a quick run through the summer's biggest hits, including Lavar Ball, "Will and Grace", "The Emoji Movie" and Leslie Jones and her "Michelle Obama arms".
