For being the big pop of the night, this segment wasn't the best of the show (my vote goes to the Trump brothers), but it's the freshest political story ripe for comedy that doesn't involve Trump himself.

In the first of four Thursday episodes of "Weekend Update: Summer Edition", SNL alum Bill Hader returned to play Anthony Scaramucci, the former White House communications director whose brief tenure included a vulgarity-laced interview with The New Yorker.

"Thanks for having us, Colin", Day said as the duo were introduced, while Moffatt said, "I'm Eric!"

Fueled by Alec Baldwin's Emmy Award nominated appearances as President Donald Trump, "SNL" has enjoyed its highest ratings in 23 years.

"No no, it's our surging economy", Trump Jr. insisted. "No one cares about my meeting with the Russians anymore".

"Last week you got some peanuts", Erik blurted to Jr., only to have his pronunciation corrected to "subpoena".

"All my father did was give me some advice", Donald said regarding the Russian collusion claims.

"And then he winked", Eric interrupted. He's quickly shut up with a fidget spinner that he doesn't quite know how to use, while Don Jr. uses a To Catch a Predator reference to justify his actions. "When I hear my name three times, I appear like a Goomba Beetlejuice", Scaramucci told "Weekend Update" anchor Michael Che.

"The Mooch has no regrets, baby", he said. "I'm like human cocaine".

"You got a little bump of me, I made you feel excited, but I was out of your system too quick. And now that I'm gone, you're all depressed and edgy and you're trying to figure out how to score some more Scaramooch!"

SNL has attempted the primetime experiment in the past with varying degrees of success, but those special programs aired during the SNL season with two airing in the final month of presidential elections (2008 and 2012).
