SNL's Weekend Update Summer Edition premieres with solid first episode

The president's sons had small but recurring roles during the regular season of "Saturday Night Live", but on Thursday night, they stole the show.

While SNL's Weekend Update Summer Edition focused, naturally, on Michael Che and Colin Jost's faux-newscast, the installment made good use of cast members Mikey Day and Alex Moffat reprising the impersonations of Don Jr. and Erik.

The highlight of the night, and sure to be the water cooler topic of Friday, was Anthony Scaramucci (Bill Hader) FaceTiming into the show.

The show, which aired live, was the expected and welcome mix of random small-town crimes and major national news that is Weekend Update's bread and butter.

The return of Hader, who is an SNL legend, is probably what will be talked about the most in recaps of the episode.

For those who have forgotten how much "SNL" sends Trump into a tizzy, here's a quick refresher from his Twitter account.

Even after Trump won the election, he was still lashing out at "SNL".

The show opened with jokes mocking Trump's threat Wednesday to rain "fire and fury" on North Korea.

Unsurprisingly, Che and Jost laid into the Trump jokes. Che asked. "She used to be desperate, like, 'Send me your poor, your exhausted, anybody, I just need a man, lord.' Now she's on Tinder like, 'He's gotta be rich, and smart, and light-skinned, and 6'4".' I'm like, 'Bitch, you aren't China! "Unless that threat is, 'You know, I could have your father fired.' Also, you can't threaten someone when you're sitting down".

There was Donald Trump Jr. Hader Facetimed the Weekend Update anchors in the middle of their story and said, "I heard you two nutless liberal asswipes mentioned my name, and when I hear my name three times, I appear like a goomba Beetlejuice". So from now until the show's new season kicks off in October, Trump can take heart: there will be one-third less punchlines at his expense.
