Colin Jost Says Obama's Two Wins Joke Was 'Incredibly Lame,' and as Head Writer of 'SNL,' He Would Know
Look, let’s not mince words here. No one likes Colin Jost. Weak Weekend Update co-anchor and the head writer for an exceptionally weak set of seasons, the man doesn’t have a lot of fans. Barack Obama also has a lot of people who aren’t wild about him, so Jost took to Twitter during last night’s State of the Union to make sure no one thinks he’s on Team O just in case there’s a lot of crossover audience there.
What sitting president has ever bragged about winning two elections? That was incredibly lame. #SOTU— Colin Jost (@TheColinJost) January 21, 2015
When someone pointed out that this was a fairly “lame” thing to get hung up on, he went into the detached above-it-all mode ladies like Rashida Jones must love/tolerate (seriously, he’s apparently dating/dated Rashida Jones).
@Budini Well there were many things that were lame about it, as well as all State of the Unions speeches ever.— Colin Jost (@TheColinJost) January 21, 2015
So, our somewhat heretofore baseless douchechills have been confirmed. And, of course, we all already know that Michael Che is a major douche, too, from that time he finally put those women in their place (yeah women! You’ve been on top too long!) for speaking out about the problem with catcalling and more recently turning his throngs of followers on Jennifer Pozner by selectively retweeting a year’s worth of out-of-context tweets and photos of herself because she said something negative about him.
If you didn't want this convo @CheThinks, you shouldn't name-search@4:30am then obsessively RT my months-old tweets. Sad, whiny, pathetic.— Jennifer L. Pozner (@jennpozner) January 7, 2015
I think their predecessors could say it best.
Meanwhile, President Obama will do his best to heal the sting of Jost’s biting commentary.
