Weekend Update on Russia Hacking the Election – SNL


♪♪♪
>>>IT’S “WEEKEND UPDATE” WITH COLIN JOST AND MICHAEL CHE.
[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>GOOD EVENING, EVERYBODY.
>>WELCOME TO WEEKEND UPDATE. I’M COLIN JOST.
>>I’M MICHAEL CHE. DONALD TRUMP IS ABOUT A MONTH
AWAY FROM HIS INAUGURATION AND PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO NOTICE
SOME RED FLAGS. [ LAUGHTER ]
>>AT A PRESS CONFERENCE ON FRIDAY PRESIDENT OBAMA AGAIN
CLAIMED RUSSIA HACKED OUR ELECTION.
HE ALSO ACCUSED DONALD TRUMP OF KNOWING THAT IT WAS HAPPENING
WHILE DOING NOTHING ABOUT IT. BUT I MEAN, CAN YOU BLAME HIM?
WHO SNITCHES WHEN SOMEBODY IS CHEATING FOR THEM?
THAT’S JUST UNGRATEFUL. YOU DON’T EXPECT TOM BRADY TO
TELL THE REF LET ME TRY THAT TOUCHDOWN PASS AGAIN, THE BALL
WAS DEFLATED. I GUESS DONALD TRUMP WAS JUST
ACTING LIKE A PATRIOT. [ LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE ]
>>YESTERDAY THE FBI BACKED UP THE CIA AND THE WHITE HOUSE IN
THEIR CONCLUSION THAT RUSSIA INTERFERED IN THE U.S. ELECTION.
YET SOMEHOW TRUMP KEEPS DEFENDING RUSSIA DESPITE ALL THE
EVIDENCE. IT’S LIKE IF RIGHT AFTER PEARL
HARBOR FDR HAD SAID, WE DON’T KNOW IT WAS JAPAN.
IT COULD HAVE BEEN JUST BEEN SOME FAT GUY ON A COUCH
SOMEWHERE.>>>PRESIDENT OBAMA CLAIMED THE
RUSSIANS STOPPED HACKING AFTER OBAMA TOLD PUTIN TO, QUOTE, CUT
IT OUT. THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE IS VOTING
ON MONDAY. IT WOULD TAKE 37 MEMBERS TO
CHANGE THEIR VOTE TO COST DONALD TRUMP THE ELECTION.
THAT’S RIGHT. ONLY 37 PEOPLE STAND IN THE WAY
OF CIVIL WAR’S EPISODE TWO, REVENGE OF THE SOUTH.
[ LAUGHTER ] THE ONLY THING SCARIER TO ME
THAN DONALD TRUMP BECOMING PRESIDENT IS TRUMP NOT BEING
ALLOWED TO BECOME PRESIDENT. TAKING THE PRESIDENCY AWAY FROM
DONALD TRUMP NOW IS LIKE GIVING A MONKEY A MACHINE GUN AND
TRYING TO WRESTLE IT BACK FROM HIM.
AT THIS POINT ALL WE CAN DO IS JUST PRAY HE CAN’T FIGURE IT
OUT, GETS BORED AND PUTS IT DOWN AND WALKS AWAY.
>>I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE
WAS FIRST PROPOSED BY ALEXANDER HAMILTON AS A CHECK
AGAINST MISGUIDED POPULAR VOTE. SO IT’S IRONIC THAT BECAUSE OF
“HAMILTON” A BLACK GUY IS GETTING RECAST AS A WHITE GUY.
[ LAUGHTER ]>>OBAMA SAID THAT DEMOCRATS ARE
FALSELY CHARACTERIZED AS COASTAL LIBERAL LATTE-SIPPING, OUT OF
TOUCH FOLKS. THEN HE GRABBED A SALTED CARAMEL
MOCHACCINO AND HOPPED ON A PRIVATE JET TO HAWAII.
>>I HAVE TO SAY IT WAS PRETTY SAD SEEING OBAMA HOLD A PRESS
CONFERENCE FOR MAYBE HIS LAST TIME.
IT WAS LIKE HIS FAREWELL CONCERT.
HE WAS GOING THROUGH ALL HIS GREATEST HITS, THE CLIMATE DEAL,
OBAMACARE, REDUCING UNEMPLOYMENT.
I GOT SO INTO IT I STARTED CALLING OUT MY FAVORITES.
I WAS LIKE, HEY! DO KILLING OSAMA!
AND HE DIDN’T EVEN BRING UP THE FACT THAT HE WAS THE FIRST BLACK
PRESIDENT, WHICH IF YOU LOOK AT HISTORY IS NOT AN EASY THING TO
DO. THAT ALONE HAS EARNED HIM A
PLACE ON EVERY BLACK FAMILY’S WALL RIGHT NEXT TO
MARTIN LUTHER KING AND PERM JESUS.
[ LAUGHTER ]>>DONALD TRUMP MET WITH
KANYE WEST AT TRUMP TOWER THIS WEEK.
I ASSUME TO NOMINATE KANYE FOR A NEWLY CREATED POST
SECRETARY OF HUMBLENESS. HE AND TRUMP DISCUSSED WHAT
KANYE DESCRIBED AS MULTICULTURAL ISSUES.
MULTICULTURAL ISSUES IS ALSO HOW KANYE DESCRIBES HIS WIFE’S
FAMILY. [ LAUGHTER ]
>>TRUMP MUST FEEL LIKE DON CORLEONE NOW.
EVERYBODY’S TAKING MEETINGS WITH HIM, ASKING HIM FOR FAVORS.
RIGHT NOW CHRIS CHRISTIE IS PACING AROUND TRUMP TOWER LOBBY
LIKE LUCA BRAZZI PRACTICING HIS LINES.
[ LAUGHTER ] LIKE, MAY YOUR FIRST TERM BE A
MASCULINE TERM. BUT DO WE REALLY NEED TO KNOW
EVERYTHING ABOUT EVERYBODY HE MEETS?
I MEAN, IF THE MEDIA WANTS TO FINE TOOTH COMB TRUMP’S DEALINGS
WITH PUTIN, I GET THAT. BUT WHEN HE’S MEETING WASHED UP
FOOTBALL PLAYERS AND RAPPERS FRESH OUT OF THE PUZZLE FACTORY,
I DON’T NEED THAT INFORMATION. WHAT WOULD A KANYE WEST AND
DONALD TRUMP MEETING EVEN BE? IT’S LIKE WHEN SCOOBY DOO MEETS
WITH THE HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS. LIKE WHY?
WHAT WOULD THAT DO?>>DONALD TRUMP OFFICIALLY
ANNOUNCED THAT HE IS NOMINATING EXXON MOBIL’S CEO REX TILLERSON
TO BE SECRETARY OF STATE. TRUMP CHOSE THE EXXON CEO
BECAUSE HE WAS THREE CENTS CHEAPER THAN THE CHEVRON CEO
ACROSS THE STREET. [ LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE ]
IN 2013 PUTIN AWARDED TILLERSON THE ORDER OF FRIENDSHIP, WHICH
IS ONE OF THE HIGHEST HONORS RUSSIA GIVES TO FOREIGNERS.
IN FACT THE ONLY HIGHER HONOR RUSSIA CAN GIVE YOU IS PRESIDENT
OF THE UNITED STATES. [ LAUGHTER ]
[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

  1. I don't get this, is this a backlog of videos that weren't uploaded on time or something? why are they talking about OLLLDDD news?

  2. see spin on 1 min

    HOST SAYS / RUSSIA INTERFERED W/ ELECTIONS / , BUT MESSAGE ON SCREEN SAYS
    / RUSSIAN HACKING . /

    and SOMEHOW ITS ALLOWED FOR USA ONLY TO TAP INTO MERKEL PHONE, OR DISPOSE DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT IN IRAN, it conquer Iraq and kill millions of people

    SO STUPID

  3. Notice how the networks are all telling Americans that they are so mentally feeble that Russia is able to influence them into voting for Trump? No wonder everybody else sees them as the uber North Korea that they are.

  4. -Guys, we have high level of crime and problems with economics.
    -Hmm… lemme think….BREAKING NEWS: BISH PUTIN PAYS FOR ALL DA SHIT DAT HAPPENS OUT HERE. WE R SHOOK DAYM

  5. It feels like someone in their Digital team is leaving SNL and is uploading as many as possible during their last month. Keep going. Whatever the reason we in the UK are very happy!

  6. lmao. only time SNL gets ratings is when they spread propaganda haha. otherwise they get no views BC they can't get any viewers or genuine laughs. that's why they use canned laughter now while taping. simply pathetic

  7. "The only higher honor Russia can give you is president of the United States."
    B-B-B-BURN!!!!!πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

  8. Putin is evil dictator but Obama who left office with the US bombing 7 different nations isn't. Nice logic SNL. Stick to comedy and stay away from politics. Cringeworthy stuff.

  9. What the fuck is Donald Trump going to do about the election process? He's transitioning into the presidential office with ZERO political background, ZERO direct relationships in Washington, ZERO knowledge of how his job works — let alone this nebulous election process. You expect him to get to the bottom of something that only the Democrats are crying about because they'll do ANYTHING to go back to the days when they were PROMISED the election by every single news outlet on the planet.

  10. It's ok that we are going to war with Russia based on unproven "classified" hacking claims from intelligence agencies, just laugh about it! fake news to start a war! HA HA so funny.

  11. Don't people get that they have no idea who the fuck hacked the DNC……… There evidence that theyΒ have is that they used a Russian Keyboard and the coding was in Russian. Hey people, If you listen to any hacker they will tell you the first thing any high level hacker would do if they were from Russia is not use a Russian Keyboard and not use the Russian language. They have no idea who hacked the DNC and the info is info that we should have known anyway. The American people should no that Hilary Clinton has a public position and a private position. Yes we should know that she just lies straight to our face even though we already knewΒ  but it was nice to get even more validation. That being said no one fucking knows who hacked the DNC so stop with the unfunny jokes.

  12. This vid may be some weeks old, but has the Russia issue been resolved? Why aren't the press still asking those questions about Trumps involvement?

  13. You stupid liberals watch SNL and act like it's real news. You people are pathetic and so is the cast of SNL. Just a bunch of crybaby liberals stating what they think is the truth. But there is no actual basis in reality.

  14. Worst thing about NBC is how they always demonize russia. It is like they are talking about North Korea and not a developed superpower. Don't get me wrong, there is no big country in the world I trust less than Russia, and I live in Finland so. But come on.

  15. "what would a Kanye West and Donald Trump meeting even be?" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I'm happy we found out.

  16. We can be a good country we have half of it we just need an sr and Boom ussr then pretend trump was a bad dream

  17. Boy! If this bit isn't included in the Mueller Report, it certainly belongs there! This is all the stuff Trump was in denial about.

  18. No collusion? And I love how the first joke was about Obama knowing that Russia was trying to hack the election, and he did nothing to stop it. OBAMA KNEW RUSSIA WAS HACKING AND DID NOTHING. LOL. REMEMBER WHEN SNL WAS FUNNY?

  19. I think it's a shame that america can't even give it's president the benefit of the doubt instead of automatically tearing him apart and making america look even worse in the face of all this.

  20. Trump choose Rex Tillerson as his next Secretary of State because he was .03 cheaper than the Chevron CEO lol hilarious πŸ˜‚!

  21. All the Russian hacking the election BS really make Americans look stupid. It may be a bit more accurate to say, "The Russians hacked a bunch of DNC and RNC emails". Since non of the election process is done on line or even attached to the internet in any way, it's actually impossible for Russia, or ANYONE else for that matter, to hack the actual election!!!

  22. November of 2019, Republicans are now trying to convince us that every time anyone said "Russia" in 2017, they actually said "Ukrane." This is how Bush JR got us to attack Sadam instead of Osama back in 2001.
