Donald Trump isn’t “done yet,” conceded “Saturday Night Live’s” Colin Jost on “Weekend Update.” But “Mike Pence is definitely warming up in the bullpen.”
Things don’t look too promising for the “president-for-now,” even though he denied that he told booted FBI Director James Comey to stop the investigation into Russian connections to the Trump campaign, Jost noted on the season finale Saturday.
“This sets up a real dilemma,” said Jost. “Who are you going to believe? The head of the FBI or the guy who’s definitely lying?”
Trump’s appeal to Comey to announce that the president was not under investigation “sounds pretty suspicious,” Jost added. “If you’re watching an episode of ‘Law and Order’ and the husband asks the detective, ‘When are you going to announce I’m not a suspect in my wife’s disappearance,’ that guy definitely buried a lady in the woods.”
Jost also mocked the revelation that Comey wore a suit that would blend in with the curtains in the Blue Room of the White House so Trump wouldn’t notice him. “If he really wanted to avoid interacting with Trump, he should have just married him,” said Jost. As for Trump calling Comey a “nut job,” Jost pointed out: “I’m just happy a nut job wasn’t something that happened to Trump in a Russian hotel room.”

The segment included farewell “Weekend Update” appearances by Vanessa Bayer as muddly-mouthed weather woman Dawn Lazarus and Bobby Moynihan as Drunk Uncle. This is the last “SNL” season for both.
Bayer also played a flatulent old-Hollywood glam movie star in a film skit, and a super-bratty girlfriend in an ad whose fed-up boyfriend (Bennett) tries to shut her up with a Cartier diamond-encrusted Fidget Spinner.
Moynihan also played an anemic trash-talking wrestling rival of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. He also appeared as a mad scientist infuriated by a rival’s creation of a sex molester robot in the program’s riskiest skit that was earning lots of Twitter hate Saturday night.
