Here's five minutes of 'Saturday Night Live' Weekend Update trashing Brett Kavanaugh

Saturday Night Live's recurring Weekend Update sketch is usually a rapid-fire series of one-liners cracking jokes at the top headlines of the week. It's telling that this five-minute segment from the show's Season 44 premiere focused only on one thing: Brett Kavanaugh.


Hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost — who look much more at home here after their questionable Emmy Awards appearance — trade barbs back and forth, touching on Kavanaugh's angry demeanor during Thursday's Senate hearing, his beer-soaked high school years, and his overall (lack of) fitness for the job of Supreme Court justice.


Weekend Update often misses the mark, but this one does a pretty good job of capturing what we've all been talking about for the past three days.
