‘SNL’s Weekend Update Takes On 30 Rock Bed Bug Infestation, Katie Britt, Lindsey Graham & More

Colin Jost and Michael Che poked fun at politics and pop culture on Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update” segment.

Jost dinged the story that a studio within 30 Rockefeller Plaza, where SNL is also housed, was infested with bed bugs. It was reported during the week that Studio 3A, where MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show is set, had to be evacuated due to an “unidentified insect.”

“For more on this story, everybody, look under your seat,” Jost joked.

Che went on to poke fun at Mike Tyson, saying that the boxer would have difficulty pronouncing Netflix, the place where his fight with Jake Paul will stream later this year.

Jost also didn’t pass on the opportunity to mock Republican Katie Britt following her strange State of the Union rebuttal.

“Those were all scenes from the one-woman show A Britt Much,” Jost joked. “It’s the play critics are calling, ‘Is she OK?'”

Jost continued, “That was honestly some of the worst acting I’ve ever seen and I’ve seen me.”

The duo also cracked some jokes about the State of the Union. Jost noted that Lindsey Graham was seemingly “laughing and enjoying” Joe Biden’s speech.

“Normally [Graham] is only that happy when he’s secretly watching RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Jost quipped.

Another funny line was when Jost mentioned Biden “got a big response when addressing the issue of abortion, when he said, ‘We’re about to find out how much political power women have.’ Then he turned to Kamala [Harris] and said, ‘Except you.'”
