SNL\'s Weekend Update Applauds Trump\'s \'Genius Troll Move\' of Leaving New York for Florida  

After a lackluster cold open centered on Kate McKinnon's Elizabeth Warren, a lazy bit with McKinnon's Kellyanne Conway and the Baghdadi raid's hero dog mocking President Trump, and several sketches of the great Kristen Stewart doing her damnedest to elevate some seriously subpar writing, "Weekend Update" returned on Saturday Night Live.

And this week, co-hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che took a break from cracking transphobic jokes to focus on Trump's decision to move from New York City to Florida, where he'll pay even less taxes than he already does.

Bill Maher's Show Has Gone Completely Off the Rails

"Donald Trump announced that he is changing his permanent residence from New York to Florida, because you know what they say: if you can't drain the swamp, move to it," said Colin Jost. "I gotta say, it's such a genius troll move that Trump raised taxes for New Yorkers and then left New York. It's like ripping one in an elevator, then pressing all the buttons and running out."

"Trump also said he's leaving New York because local politicians have been treating him very badly-especially one New York politician who has been actively destroying his life," he added, before throwing to a picture of Rudy Giuliani.

Next came Che: "I don't blame Trump for moving. He got booed today in New York at the UFC fight, he got booed in D.C. at the World Series, now he's moving to Florida so he can probably get booed at Disney World. He gets booed everywhere he's ever lived. I mean, even Cosby can still play Philly."

Georgia's Republican governor has chosen a wealthy businesswoman and political newcomer to fill an upcoming vacancy in the U.S. Senate, flouting President Donald Trump's preferred candidate in a play for moderate suburban voters. Gov. Brian Kemp formally announced his selection of Kelly Loeffler on Wednesday, pushing aside intense criticism from hard-core Trump advocates who wanted Kemp to appoint Rep. Doug Collins, one of Trump's staunchest defenders in Congress. Kemp and Loeffler moved quickly to extinguish the rebellion from the right, pitching the little-known candidate as a Trump supporter and emphasizing her rural roots.
