SNL’s Michael Che Rips GOP Over Kavanaugh: ‘Pick Another Dude from Your Illuminati Lizard Meetings’

Saturday Night Live’s Micheal Che — who co-hosts Weekend Update with Colin Jost — was all over embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Saturday night and wondered why the GOP is sticking with the fatally flawed nominee.

“I just want to remind everybody that all that yelling and crying happened at a job interview,” Che said about the Thursday hearing that was also parodied on SNL. “I mean, typically when you’re asked about a sexual assault and your drinking problem at a job interview, you don’t get the damn job.”

“I don’t know if Mr. Kavanaugh has a history of assault or if he actually has a drinking problem, but I do know that he might,” he continued. “And you shouldn’t be on the Supreme Court if you might. You shouldn’t be on the People’s Court if you might. Sometimes might is enough. I mean, I don’t want to pet your dog if he might bite me. I don’t want to leave you in my house if you might be a crackhead. I’m not going to have sex with you if you might have dated Charlie Sheen.”

“Why does it have to be him?” Che asked. “Can’t just pick a dude from your Illuminati lizard meetings?”
