“Weekend Update” co-host Colin Jost rocked Rupert Murdoch with an intergalactic diss after the right-wing media mogul officially bid farewell to his roles as chair of News Corp. and Fox Corp. last week.
″[He’s] passing the position on to his eldest son, Darth Murdoch,” quipped Jost as he used “Star Wars” to mock Lachlan Murdoch, who is taking the reins from his father.
Co-host Michael Che separately brought up the House Ethics Committee’s recent report on Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.) that described the Republican using campaign funds to pay for personal care and services including Hermès products, cosmetic procedures and OnlyFans’ subscriptions.
The GOP chairman of the committee, Rep. Michael Guest (R-Miss.), has since filed a resolution to expel Santos from Congress.
Che, who joked over a picture of Santos using the phone that it depicted him “asking your grandma for her social security number,” made a swipe at the congressman over his alleged purchases.
“Santos would’ve denied the allegations but he had to rest his new lips,” Che joked.
