"Saturday Night Live" mocked Rudy Giuliani for his bombshell revelation that President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump pushes back on recent polling data, says internal numbers are 'strongest we've had so far' Illinois state lawmaker apologizes for photos depicting mock assassination of Trump Scaramucci assembling team of former Cabinet members to speak out against Trump MORE reimbursed his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, for a payment to adult-film star Stormy Daniels.

“Well, the clock might be running out on Trump’s presidency, so you know what that means: they’re finally putting in Rudy,” “Weekend Update” co-host Colin Jost said. “But instead of making a great play, this Rudy immediately tackled his own quarterback.”

Jost called Giuliani’s revelation “maybe the best confession I’ve seen on TV that didn’t end with ‘Created by Dick Wolf,’ ” referring to the “Law & Order” producer.


Giuliani, who recently joined Trump's legal team, set off a firestorm last week when he said that Trump had reimbursed Cohen for the $130,000 payment to Daniels to stay quiet about an alleged affair with Trump. Trump had previously denied knowing about the payment. 

Jost also knocked Giuliani for saying that Trump had the money for the payment “funneled” through a law firm.

“Dude, ‘funneled’ is not typically a word innocent people use when talking about money,” Jost said. “No one says, ‘Yeah, my grandma funneled me five dollars on my birthday.’ ”

Co-host Michael Che also went after Giuliani for claiming that Trump only recently learned that he was reimbursing Cohen for the payment in installments.

“I have a couple questions, like: What kind of billionaire pays for stuff in installments?” Che asked. “You’re the president of the United States, why are you paying for sex like it’s a NordicTrack?”
