Colin Jost stepped out from behind the “Saturday Night Live” Weekend Update desk tonight to anchor an extended bit at the ACLU’s “Stand For Rights” live benefit. The comedian instructed viewers on how to avoid making a bad protest sign.
“It seems as though there is something new to protest here everyday, and what do protests need? They need protest signs,” Jost said early in the segment before suggesting, “with Donald Trump having somewhere between one and four years left in his term, we have a lot more protests that are going to come.”
When a badly drawn anti-Trump protest sign appeared next to him for the segment, Jost said, “I think this is either supposed to be representing Trump violating the emoluments clause by accepting money from Russia or Dennis the menace with giant fake boobs.”

The Huffington Post also spoke to Jost backstage, where a passerby brought up that Trump ― who condoned sexual assault in a 2005 hot mic recording unearthed by The Washington Post ― had recently declared April to be National Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
Jost responded by joking, “Did he say pro or con?”
Earlier in the night, HuffPost also spoke to Alec Baldwin, who similarly expressed frustrations with the president, claiming that “just to clean up” after his time in office will be “almost impossible.”
