Summer Edition' review: Plenty to joke about

Summer Edition' review: Plenty to joke about

Bill Hader also made a surprise appearance on Weekend Update: Summer Edition to debut his impression of Anthony Scaramucci. "When I hear my name three times, I appear like a Goomba Beetlejuice", Scaramucci told "Weekend Update" anchor Michael Che.

"Everybody loves The Mooch", he said. He will be interviewed by George Stephanopoulos on ABC's This Week on 13 August and on 14 August on CBS's The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

The half-hour "Weekend Update: Summer Edition" will air live at 9 p.m. for the next four Thursdays on NBC.

Kenan Thompson played National Basketball Association dad and world-class braggart LaVar Ball, whom Jost called a "black Trump, everyone!"

The show saved its sharpest digs for President Donald Trump and his older sons.

Among the political topics Jost and Che covered specifically were immigration policy - who knew Lady Liberty had gotten so picky about guys, quipped Che - Kim Jong Un threatening Guam, the NAACP's Missouri travel advisory, and the Baltimore Police Dept. planting drugs on suspects. And Michael Che mocked Trump for folding his arms, saying he looked like "a Jeff Dunham puppet". Oddly, the best joke of the night was Moffat as Eric Trump, aah-ing over a fidget spinner, maybe because it barely had to be written at all: Moffat just stared at it, while Day (as Donald Jr.) spun it for him.

"It's a subpoena", Don Jr. corrected his brother again.

"No one cares about my meeting with the Russians anymore", Don Jr. said.

"When you met with the Russians?" actor Alex Moffat asked as Eric Trump.

"The whole story is a nothing burger", Don Jr. responded.

With the threat of nuclear war in the headlines, it's nice that "Weekend Update" is around for the summer to add a little more levity to a news cycle that is full of fire and fury. They also touched on the death of cookbook editor Judith Jones, LL Cool J's upcoming Kennedy Center Honor, the "Will & Grace" reboot being revived for a 10th season before a single episode of the ninth one had run, and a man who had far too good a time at "The Emoji Movie".
