Invariably, Davidson returned to the “Weekend Update” desk, where he started by saying, “So the midterm elections are obviously a huge deal, and after I had to move back in with my mom, I started paying attention to them. And I realized there are some really gross people running for office this year.”
He made fun of various political hopefuls like the Republican congressman Peter King (He looks like “if a cigar came to life”) and Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic governor of New York (“He looks like a guy that’s sleeping with your mom, but stays overnight and eats breakfast with you in his boxers”).
Davidson added, “I shouldn’t be making fun of how anyone looks. I look like I make vape juice in a bathtub. I look like a Dr. Seuss character went to prison.”
Finally, he addressed the elephant in the room:
The last thing I will say, is: I know some of you are curious about the breakup. But the truth is, it’s nobody’s business. And sometimes things just don’t work out, and that’s O.K. She’s a wonderful, strong person and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world. Now please, go vote on Tuesday.
Sleep Aid of the Week
In what began like a typical pharmaceutical ad, a narrator said, “When the workday you’ve had threatens to ruin the night’s sleep you want, you need something that works. There’s only one over-the-counter sleep aid that answers the question, how do you sleep at night?”
The answer? “It’s HuckaPM, the only sleep medication strong enough for Sarah Huckabee Sanders.”
Aidy Bryant, playing the White House press secretary, explained, “People are always asking me, how do you sleep at night? In fact, they scream it at me all day long.” She sampled the medication on a couple of occasions, crashing to the ground each time.
The narrator returned to say that the drug contained “melatonin, extra strength quaaludes and what Michael Jackson’s doctor called ‘One-and-dones.’”
