SNL couldn’t get enough of Trump’s crappy NFTs this week. The cold open addressed the president’s strange digital trading cards and so did Weekend Update.
“Semi-retired maniac Donald Trump has launched a collection of digital NFT trading cards depicting him in various costumes, including cowboy, super-hero, and most unbelievable of all, guy who didn’t dodge the draft,” said Colin Jost as a picture of Trump in a flight-suit flashed across the screen.
“I’m honestly just relieved he’s wearing an American military uniform,” Jost joked.
From there, Jost added that Trump jumped into NFTs at the funniest time: right as everything crashed.
“It’s like getting into Kanye now,” Jost said, “which Trump also kind of did.”
From there hosts Jost and Michael Che joked about FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried, President Joe Biden, and congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.
