HIGHLIGHTS FROM "SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE'S WEEKEND UPDATE WITH COLIN JOST AND MICHAEL CHE" November 23, 2019

“WEEKEND UPDATE” ANCHOR COLIN JOST – Testimony in the impeachment hearing concluded in the House this week. And now the debate will shift to your house for Thanksgiving.

JOST - But the big revelation this week was that EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland, explicatively tied President Trump, Mike Pompeo and Mike Pence to the campaign. It’s especially tough for Pence whose greatest fear is being tied to something by another man.

“WEEKEND UPDATE” ANCHOR MICHAEL CHE – Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg spoke at a predominately black church in Brooklyn, where he apologized for his stop-and-frisk policy. And as a black man from New York, I'll say apology…noted. Not accepted. Just noted. Cause as much as I hate to be racially profiled, I got to admit stop and frisk did give me a good excuse for being late to work a lot and also helped me find a lot of weed I thought I lost.

CHE – The screenwriter of the new Harriet Tubman biopic," said that when he first pitched the movie in the 1990s, a studio executive suggested that Julia Roberts play Harriet Tubman. Worse, it was going to be called “Runaway Bride 2.”

CHE – South Dakota's Governor is defending a new anti-Meth campaign which features the tagline, "Meth. We're on it." Which still isn't as bad North Dakota’s ad campaign, “Cocaine. We cracked it.”

JOST - The maker of M&M's announced a new vegan chocolate candy made with a plant-based alternative. But I guess the real news here is that apparently regular M&M's are made from meat.

CHE – A new museum has opened in London called "The Vagina Museum," which focuses on destigmatizing female anatomy And if you're planning a trip, remember it's closed one week a month.
