Weekend Update, the Saturday Night Live tentpole, returned from hiatus on Thursday for its Summer Edition.

Co-hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che caught up on some of the highest profile political stories from the past two-or-so months — namely, “minor staffing changes” at the White House that saw the premature departures of Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer, and Anthony Scaramucci.

Scaramucci, Jost said, “was like Hanukkah in July, ’cause he was around for about a week and it was a miracle he lasted that long.”

Later, former cast member Bill Hader made a cameo as “The Mooch.”
