On Saturday Night Live this week, ‘Weekend Update‘ hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost reacted to the Republicans’ new tax plan and even more sexual assault allegations.

Jost and Che first took on the new tax plan. “You know, once the Republicans get this tax bill passed, they won’t need Donald Trump anymore. I mean, they already got what they wanted. You know, I mean, it’s like — it’s not like they like you,” Che said.

“Don’t you think it’s a little odd that they passed this bill at 2 a.m. without reading it the same night they found out Flynn was snitching on you? They know something. It’s like your family showing up to your hospital room saying, ‘Look, you need to sign this will tonight.’ ‘Can I read it first?’ ‘No time.'”

“I almost forgot about this week’s batch of predators,” said Jost later, with a picture behind him of Matt Lauer, Russell Simmons and Garrison Keillor. “It’s just a whole new segment of the news now. You’ve just got to read the names every week like Powerball numbers.”
