Seth Meyers Returns to SNL’s Weekend Update Desk to Talk Kanye West
Seth Meyers returned to Saturday Night Live as host on Oct. 13.
The one-time cast member, head writer and anchor of Weekend Update also returned to the Weekend Update desk to skewer Kanye West in the Oval Office in a segment borrowed from his Late Night Show called “Really?!”
“So Kanye West in the Oval Office? Really? Don’t you have better things to do? And by the way, when I say that, I’m really not sure which of you I’m talking to,” Meyers said after sitting down at the desk with Colin Jost and Michael Che.
He also said this, referring to the Trump-Kanye hug: “It’s not every day you get to see white supremacists and black people betrayed in the exact same way.”
The best line of the sketch, though, may have gone to Jost, who offered this analysis: “It’s really pretty simple: Kanye wants to be Trump’s famous friend because Obama called Kanye a jackass and if the president of the United States called you a jackass you’d go, you know who I like, the next president.”
Jost then suggested really Meyers was to blame “for making fun of Trump so much that he decided to become president.”
