Last Saturday on the Weekend Update show of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, only two jokes were made about Tucker Carlson which is remarkable given the week-long media coverage surrounding his issues with Fox News.
Colin Jost began with a vivid comparison to Tucker Carlson’s video from January 6th.
“Tucker Carlson, seen here laughing at a dog locked in a hot car, released security footage from the January 6th attacks with the violence edited out and said it proves it was a peaceful gathering,” said Jost. “Which is like editing all the sex out of a porn video and saying ‘it’s a short film about being a stepmom.’”
Following his remark on Carlson, Che went on to fire a jab at the latter’s apparent animosity towards Trump.
“New documents from the Dominion lawsuit revealed texts from Tucker Carlson in which he says he hates Donald Trump passionately and can’t wait until he’s able to ignore him,” said Che. “That must suck to go on TV and put on a smile and make friends with some psychotic bigot just because it’s ‘good for the show!’ Anyway, back to you, Colin.”
