‘SNL’ Weekend Update discusses Brittney Griner’s release offers up some clever jokes


Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update host shares why Brittney Griner’s release was “actually a great trade.”

The WNBA star was freed in a prisoner exchange this week. Russian arms dealer, Viktor Bout, was returned to Russia as part of the deal. Riffing on sports trades, co-host Colin Jost jokes, “It’s actually a great trade because Bout was only averaging five points and two rebounds a game.”

The duo also tackled Krysten Sinema leaving the Democratic Party (a plea for attention), as well as Raphael Warnock’s win, and former President Donald Trump calling for the Constitution to be terminated.

Jost ended by poking fun at New York City SantaCon: “the annual reminder that while Santa may exist, God doesn’t.”
