'Weekend Update' Hosts Blast Herschel Walker, Mehmet Oz Over Controversies

The co-anchors of the "Saturday Night Live" segment didn't hold back while addressing the two Republican candidates' recent scandals.

Weekend Update” co-anchors Michael Che and Colin Jost took several digs at GOP candidates Herschel Walker and Mehmet Oz for their respective controversies of the week during “Saturday Night Live” this weekend.

Walker, the Republican candidate in Georgia’s U.S. Senate race who has campaigned on an anti-abortion stance, has faced an allegation that he pushed his ex-girlfriend to get an abortion and paid for the procedure. Walker and his team have referred to the allegation as a “flat-out lie.”

Oz, the celebrity doctor and Republican candidate in Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate race, has faced a scandal of his own following a Jezebel report that his published studies led to the deaths of over 300 dogs. An Oz campaign spokesperson told Patriot-News that the report was “false and preposterous.”

Jost kicked off the “SNL” segment and wondered if “some candidates are trying to lose” in November.

Jost quipped that Oz eventually “got the recipe right” after the dog deaths.

Che later referred to the accusation against Walker.

“After the news broke that Walker paid for his ex-girlfriend’s abortion, he raised more than $500,000, because dollars are the only thing Walker is willing to raise,” Che remarked.
