“Weekend Update” co-anchor Colin Jost questioned the timing of former President Donald Trump’s NFT collection release in a fiery takedown on “Saturday Night Live.”
Jost weighed in on the former president’s $99 “digital trading cards” that dropped this week — a collection that’s been the subject of ridicule despite reportedly selling out in 12 hours.
Jost opened “Weekend Update” with a report about the House Jan. 6 committee’s consideration to issue referrals of at least three criminal charges against Trump.
The “SNL” cast member later ripped into Trump’s NFT collection as he mocked the former president’s tendency to get military draft deferments and his ties to antisemitic rapper Ye, the artist formerly known as Kanye West.
“It’s such a funny move to get into NFTs after the whole market just crashed. It’s like getting into Kanye now, which Trump also kind of did,” Jost quipped.
