SNL’s Weekend Update Roasts Rudy Giuliani’s ‘Kings of Dementia Comedy Tour’

Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update” tackled Rudy Giuliani’s whirlwind media tour in his new role as President Donald Trump’s lawyer, and skewered what they referred to as the former New York mayor’s “Dementia Comedy Tour.”

Weekend Update host Colin Jost kicked things off by explaining how Giuliani “immediately tackled his own quarterback” with the confession that Trump reimbursed his personal lawyer Michael Cohen for the hush money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels.

“It was maybe the best confession I’ve seen on TV that didn’t end with ‘Created by Dick Wolf,” Jost said.

“And during his Kings of Dementia Comedy Tour, Giuliani also said that the hush money was ‘funneled’ through a law firm,” Jost continued. “Dude, ‘funneled’ is not typically a word innocent people use when talking about money. No one says, ‘Yeah, my grandma funneled me five dollars on my birthday card.’”

Co-host Michael Che added that Giuliani revealed Trump repaid his lawyer in installments of $30,000.

“I have a couple questions,” Che said. “What kind of billionaire pays for stuff in installments? You’re the president of the United States, why are you paying for sex like it’s a NordicTrack?”

The hosts also took aim at Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti, joking that despite the attorney’s claim that he was “speechless” in the wake of Giuliani’s interviews, “he only appeared on 20 shows on six different networks.”
