I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest this skit was cut for maximum snark.
It’s “Saturday Night Live” with a hilarious piece featuring Mikey Day as Donald Trump Jr., and Alex Moffat as Eric Trump, appearing on “Weekend Update” to talk about the hot topic of the Summer – Trump Jr’s meeting with the Russian attorney.
“The border has never been more secure, and the story of the summer —” the Trump Jr. actor began.
“When you met with the Russians?” the Eric Trump character interjected.
“No, Eric. It’s our surging economy. No one cares about my meeting with the Russians anymore.”
Of course, we know they do.
The back and forth between Day’s Trump Jr. and the host was great, but the scene stealer was Moffat’s Eric Trump, who had his own thing going on, as the main conversation took place.
The “SNL” version of Trump Jr. compared the meeting to Dateline NBC’s “To Catch a Predator,” a reality TV show that tries to lure sexual predators into a home with hidden cameras by pretending to be underage minors online.
“Yes, I went to the meeting, but nothing illegal happened. It’s like on ‘To Catch a Predator!’ If a guy shows up to a house with a 12-pack of Mike’s Hard Lemonade, turns out it’s a sting.”
You’ll have to watch it for yourself, and kudos to Moffat. This was hilarious.
