The highlight of the night, and sure to be the water cooler topic of Friday, was Anthony Scaramucci (Bill Hader) FaceTiming into the show.
But when it came to the successes of President Donald Trump's administration, the SNL cast brought the two Trump sons in to help spin.
"Colin, thanks for letting us come here and talk about some of the awesome things my father is doing", Trump Jr. said.
"When you met with the Russians?"
Handed a fidget spinner to keep him occupied, Eric didn't know to spin it and just stared in fascination at the immobile toy. "No one cares about my meeting with the Russians anymore". Co-anchor Colin Jost cited the upheaval surrounding the White House, saying that while he was unsure whether Trump had colluded with Russia, "He's definitely colluding with 'Dancing With the Stars'".
The standalone, primetime version of SNL's "Weekend Update" begins a four-week summer run tonight at 9 p.m. on NBC.

"Guy shouldn't get in trouble because nothing happened!"
"All my father did was give me some advice", Don Jr. promised.
"He said son, go out there and tell the truth", Trump Jr. said.
"And then he winked!"
For being the big pop of the night, this segment wasn't the best of the show (my vote goes to the Trump brothers), but it's the freshest political story ripe for comedy that doesn't involve Trump himself.
Viewers hoping for a visit by Alec Baldwin's Trump, or even a single sketch, may have been disappointed to find out they were getting exactly what the title of the show implied.
