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!”
Former federal prosecutor says judge could void Trump’s pardon for Flynn — here’s how
Former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner responded to President Donald Trump's pardon of retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn by saying that it's entirely possible that the judge in Flynn's case could nullify the pardon.
"Just as Judge Emmet Sullivan refused to grant Barr’s corrupt motion to dismiss, I hope Judge [Emmet] Sullivan sets a hearing on whether this pardon is corrupt & hence illegal/void," said Kirschner.
Civil Rights attorney Andrew Laufer agreed, saying that he too wants to see how Judge Sullivan deals with the development.
Reporter busts Trump with damning list of times he previously claimed Flynn was guilty
On Wednesday, President Donald Trump decided to issue a full pardon of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who was awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to lying to the FBI in the course of the Russia investigation — despite Flynn's attempt to take back his plea and Attorney General William Barr's efforts to shut down the prosecution.
Although Trump and his supporters for years have painted Flynn as a hero, that was not always the sentiment, however. As BuzzFeed News' Jason Leopold noted in a lengthy Twitter thread, Trump previously was enraged with Flynn's criminal conduct, and publicly declared him a liar.
Nicolle Wallace bashes ‘two-bit criminal’ Trump for ‘skeevy’ tweet pardoning Michael Flynn
Retired Lt. Gen Michael Flynn admitted his guilt to Judge Emmett Sullivan, but President Donald Trump announced that the former director of national intelligence would never see jail time. After issuing a pardon to Flynn the day before Thanksgiving, MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace attacked the manner in which Trump announced the pardon: by tweet.
"Of all the sordid tales of Trump's presidency, this one might take the cake," said Wallace. "We knew this might be coming. We know Donald Trump likes the power to pardon. There's some reporting he's looking at a pardon for lots of other people. I wonder what your sense is about what else Donald Trump has up his sleeve?"
