Colin Jost makes news O.J. Simpson jokes during the White House Correspondents’ Dinner with cocaine

It was the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, live from Washington, D.C., featuring Colin Jost (as well as President Joe Biden).

The NBC weekly sketch show “Saturday Night Live” presenter of “Weekend Update” brought his sharp sense of humor, along with his spouse Scarlett Johansson, to the annual roast of the US president. Jost made fun of everyone, including Senator Bernie Sanders, former president Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump, and Vice President Joe Biden.

“It’s not always easy following President Biden … like it’s not always easy following what he’s saying,” said Jost. Regarding how voters reacted to Biden’s age, he added, “I hope tonight will be a night to remember… for most of us.”

“I pretend to do news on TV, just like many of you here today. He mentioned his close buddy and co-host of “Weekend Update,” Michael Che, saying, “My weekend update Michael Che was going to join me here tonight but in solidarity with President Biden, I decided to lose all my Black support.”

“I adore Washington. I left my cocaine at the White House the last time I was here. Fortunately, President Biden was able to effectively utilize it during his State of the Union speech,” Jost continued.

Speaking about current events, Jost joked that Columbia University is one of the “world’s dangerous geopolitical hotspots” in response to student demonstrations against the Israel-Hamas conflict. In addition, he made the joke, “You got O.J., Obama got Bin Laden.”
