#EndorseThis: Bill Hader Returns To SNL As ‘The Mooch’

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.

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