Jost and Che were pretty cohesive throughout, and ran a tight show for 30 minutes, even when they deviated from the cue cards.
Hopefully Weekend Update: Summer Edition will continue the charming impersonations next week, though in a meta moment (talking ostensibly about the Will And Grace reboot), Colin did warn us, "Every time NBC has even a mildly succcessgul show, they overdo it and dilute the brand".
Che also took on the recent debate over the Statue of Liberty's intentions.
Some fans expressed hopes that Scaramucci would be played by Bill Hader, who left SNL in 2013 after eight seasons. "Now she's on Tinder like, 'he's got to be rich and smart and light-skinned and 6'4".
"When you met with the Russians?" asked Eric Trump (played by Alex Moffat).
"ISIS is on the ropes", Donald Trump Jr.
But fake Donald Jr. - much like real Donald Jr. - insisted the story was a "nothing burger".
Notably, less than half the episode was devoted to politics, with Kenan Thompson appearing as LaVar Ball - the outspoken father of Lakers rookie guard Lonzo Ball - and Leslie Jones chatting up her toned-up physique, asking Jost to kiss her bicep.
"Yes, I went to the meeting, but nothing illegal happened". He's quickly shut up with a fidget spinner that he doesn't quite know how to use, while Don Jr. uses a To Catch a Predator reference to justify his actions.
"My father's presidency has been a resounding success and i will be cleared of any wrongdoing by a grand jury", he said.
Later, former cast member Bill Hader made a cameo as "The Mooch". "The Mooch has no regrets, baby". Che asked. "She used to be desperate, like, 'Send me your poor, your exhausted, anybody, I just need a man, lord.' Now she's on Tinder like, 'He's gotta be rich, and smart, and light-skinned, and 6'4".' I'm like, 'Bitch, you aren't China!
