The faux Scaramucci also addressed his tart comments about presidential adviser Steve Bannon - saying he had actually seen Bannon perform the act that the real Scaramucci described to the New Yorker's Ryan Lizza. "I didn't say Bannon tried to 's" his own 'c.' He did it! In last night's edition, anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che took turns comically pummeling Trump before a studio audience that appeared hungry for just that.

Bill Hader appeared as Anthony Scaramucci on the first summer episode of "Saturday Night Live Weekend Update". "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", said Hader. That's a pretty impressive failure.

NCP says because Ansari is a Muslim so he's creating a row
The term of incumbent Vice-President Hamid Ansari , who held the position for two consecutive terms came to an end on August 10. Venkaiah Naidu recently quit the ruling BJP party after he was announced the vice presidential candidate.

But how is the Mooch feeling about being ousted less than two weeks after getting the job? Thank goodness we have more SNL to help us through it all. "He made contact! I saw it, tongue to tip!" And because they've been away for a while, they updated everyone about the recent White House staff carousel. So last night, in a recap of the summer, SNL brought back Mikey Day and Alex Moffat as Donald Jr. and Eric Trump, played pretty accurately as incompetent manchildren.

Bill Hader hasn't returned to Saturday Night Live since he hosted the show for the first time in October of 2014, though he did pre-record a voice cameo for a sketch in the November 19, 2016 episode hosted by Kristen Wiig. "Time to retire the boring and unfunny show".

National Football League boycott petition reaches 100000 signatures over Kaepernick
That rally got a signal boost on Tuesday from filmmaker Spike Lee . "However I Still Support My Brother And His Stance On The Injustices In The USA", Lee said in a separate Twitter post.

The show used comedy to remind us of the Trump-related scandals that have continued apace during the three months inter-season period while "SNL" has been off the air.

Weekend Update Summer Edition is what it is-nothing more than a short segment padded into a full 30 minutes. But at least it's not trying to pretend it's anything that its not.
