On Friday, Trump’s oldest political adviser, Roger Stone, was arrested in a pre-dawn raid of his Florida home.
Saturday Night Live Michael Che gleefully recounted the development on Weekend Update.
“Finally! This is all I’ve been waiting for: Old white dudes getting dragged out of their cribs like drug dealers,” Che said. “Was it excessive? Yes, and I wish it was worse. I wish he was just wearing boxers and a durag, and there was a baby crying and they tased his girl. Give him the works!”
Che then went on to discuss Stone’s background.
“I googled this guy, Roger Stone, because he looks like he pays black guys to b*ng his wife,” Che said. “And I found out in 1996 he was forced to resign from Bob Dole’s campaign for asking black guys to b*ng his wife. Not kidding! Look it up!”
Trump’s staff keeps undercutting his comments about his payroll tax plot: report
President Donald Trump has claimed that everything will be fine with the removal of the payroll tax, which funds the Social Security trust fund, because he will just throw money in from the general fund. But according to Trump staff, he's confused.
The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that businesses aren't sure what to do because it would cause more difficulty on their side. The idea, however, isn't a law and it likely won't be enforced until Congress passes such a law, which isn't likely to happen since both sides oppose it.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dares Trump to compare grades — and says the ‘loser has to fund the Post Office’
During an interview with Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo on Thursday, President Donald Trump took aim at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), saying that she was a "poor student" at "I won't say where she went to school, it doesn't matter."
"This is not even a smart person," Trump added.
Ocasio-Cortez graduated cum laude from Boston University with a degree in political science and economics.
The attack had parallels to when Trump claimed in 2011, baselessly, that he had heard President Barack Obama had been a "terrible student" — even though Obama had run the Harvard Law Review.
Trump adviser Larry Kudlow: ‘We don’t want to have’ voting rights protections get through Congress
On CNBC News Thursday, President Donald Trump's economic adviser Larry Kudlow said that the administration does not want protection of voting rights to pass as part of the coronavirus stimulus package.
"So much of the Democratic asks are really liberal left wishlists we don't want to have," said Kudlow. "Voting rights, and aid to aliens, and so forth. That's not our game."
Talks between Congress and the White House are currently at an impasse. The administration is refusing to support outlays greater than $1 trillion, and the president has explicitly demanded there be no funding for the Postal Service, to keep voting by mail as difficult as possible.
