SNL Portrays Eric Trump With Intellectual Disabilities

SNL's 'Weekend Update' starts summer primetime run tonight 'Saturday Night Live: Weekend Update' begins summer run

Unsurprisingly, President Trump was spoofed by "Saturday Night Live's" summer "Weekend Update" premiere, but it turned out that Anthony Scaramucci - the short-term White House communications director - offered a more enticing target.

Saturday Night Live brought back some of the politically charged comedic buffooneries we've been missing since the season 42 finale in May.

"Colin, thanks for letting us come here and talk about some of the awesome things my father is doing", Trump Jr. said.

"ISIS is on the ropes, the border has never been more secure and the story of summer is.", Donald Jr. began.

"When you met with the Russians?" actor Alex Moffat asked as Eric Trump. Moffatt's Eric chimed in. "No one cares about my meeting with the Russians anymore".

Morocco to bid to host 2026 World Cup
The host of the 2026 World Cup will be decided during the 68th FIFA Congress, set to take place in Russian Federation in 2018. But FIFA chose to keep the contest open, and Morocco said it had made the deadline - just.

Then, Moffatt has his character misunderstand "subpoena", blurting out to Day's Donald Jr., "But just last week you got some peanuts!"

Trump Jr. affirmed that all his father did was give him some advice.

"And then he winked", Eric added. He's quickly shut up with a fidget spinner that he doesn't quite know how to use, while Don Jr. uses a To Catch a Predator reference to justify his actions. "Brothers from different mothers in real life and the same mother on TV", he tweeted.

SNL is on a historic hot streak of late, and they've carried that heat into the standalone "summer edition" of their signature "Weekend Update" segment.

"The Mooch has no regrets, baby", he said. However, with SNL's ratings rising 20% this past season, the timing was right to try again.
