Colin Jost Skewers Matt Gaetz's Worst Supporters On 'SNL'

"Who's next?" the "Weekend Update" anchor asked when listing some of the congressman's supporters. "The ghost of Jeffrey Epstein?"

Weekend Update” co-anchor Colin Jost pummeled Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) on Saturday for boasting about who has had his back since sex trafficking allegations against him surfaced.

Gaetz has talked about having support from former President Donald Trump, QAnon disciple Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-Ga.) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who has been accused of ignoring reports of sexual abuse while coaching a university wrestling team.

“Did he think those were good character references? Who’s next?” Jost scoffed. “The ghost of Jeffrey Epstein?”

Gaetz bragged about his supporters while speaking at the Women For America First summit on Friday, and Jost joked that it was a “nice change to see women pay for an hour with Matt Gaetz.”

Gaetz allegedly sent $900 via Venmo to a friend, who then reportedly sent the money to young women in payments labeled “Tuition” and “School.”

“If true,” Jost said, Gaetz would be the “only congressman actually helping with student loans.”
