Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update team was reporting live from the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night, and they got a very special guest appearance from Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Or rather, from Kate McKinnon in the guise of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The notorious RBG appeared on the MSNBC broadcast to clear the air regarding her recent controversial comments about Donald Trump, but where IRL Ginsburg publicly apologized for calling the Republican Party’s nominee for President a “faker” and saying she might move to New Zealand if he wins the White House, fake Ginsburg told a very tan Colin Joost that, “Trump picked a fight with the wrong 15-pound, 200-year-old marionette, baby!” And then, of course, she dished out a few new scorching hot Ginsburns.
On Trump saying Ginsburg’s mind is shot: “If my mind is shot then Donald Trump’s mind is shot, stabbed, strangled, put in a vat of wet cement and dumped in the Gowanus Canal. His mind is sleeping with the fishes, but it’s waking up to a Ginsburn!”
On whether or not she went too far in her criticism of Trump as a sitting Supreme Court Judge: “Of course I went too far. I have no sense of perspective. I’m like a flea. I can jump 40 times my own height. Also you’re never gonna get rid of me. I rode here on a dog, Colin!” She then added, “His name’s Mike Pence. And he just got Ginsburned!”
On the possibility of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie being elected to the Supreme Court: “Chris Christie? On the Supreme Court? Please, I’d rather have an empty chair then a broken chair. And that’s a Ginsburn!”
On possible Supreme Court Justice Merrick Garland: “Merrick Garland’s like a Supreme Court with only eight judges — hung!” McKinnon characterized that last one as, “A sexy slow burn.”
McKinnonsburg also explained that she had been doing a lot of CrossFit in the form of crossing her arms and legs really tightly and trying to fit inside a soup can, and that she was Airbnb’ing the kettle that Tinker Bell lives in while she looks for a Planned Parenthood in the state of Indiana. Oh, and she called Michael Che Don Lemon. Someone thrown some water on Che, cause he just got Ginsburned.
