Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson appeared on the standalone summer edition of Weekend Update to monologize about the controversy surrounding unsigned free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to kneel for the national anthem.

“The NFL isn’t really screwing him because he’s controversial,” Davidson explained. “It’s because, to them, he’s not good enough to be controversial. If you’re in the top 20, they let you get away with anything.”

Just over year before her untimely death on Friday, the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg appeared as a guest lecturer for the Clinton School of Public Service in Little Rock, AR with National Public Radio correspondent Nina Totenberg. The crowd that signed up to see "Notorious RBG" live was so large that the event had to be moved to a major sports arena – and they weren't disappointed by the wide-ranging, hour-long interview.

Witty, charming, brilliant, principled, Ginsburg represented the very best of American liberalism and modern feminism. Listen to her and you'll feel even more deeply what former President Bill Clinton says in his poignant introduction: "Only one of us in this room appointed her…but all of us hope that she will stay on that court forever."
