‘SNL’: Weekend Update Trashes Trump’s Wild Rhetoric, Alabama’s IVF Ruling

Saturday Night Live ‘s Weekend Update went after former President Donald Trump‘s wild campaign rhetoric, as well as the Alabama Supreme Court ruling this week that frozen embryos created through in-vitro fertilization (IVF) are human beings.

Co-anchor Colin Jost began by quipping that, after Trump won the South Carolina primary earlier in the night, he “is now undefeated everywhere except court.”

Of the former president’s recent hyperbolic comments, Jost joked that they reminded him of somebody: the comic book supervillain Bane.
