“Now, I know this was taken before Franken took public office,” said “Update” co-anchor Colin Jost about the now infamous picture of Franken posing in a mock-grope position over a sleeping Leeann Tweeden, “but it was also after he was a sophomore in high school.”
After Jost made a self-directed shot at sketch comedy, co-anchor Michael Che took over, decrying the partisan side-taking in the Al Franken vs. Roy Moore debate. “I think they’re all bitches,” he said.
“Update” saved its best for Jeremy Piven, though, with Jost joking, “More than a dozen women have now accused actor Jeremy Piven of sexual assault spanning more than 30 years. The allegations were revealed in the shocking documentary Entourage.”
Take a look at the “Update” segment above (the Franken jokes begin at the 0:26 mark). How do you think the show did by its old contributor, Al Franken?
