Pete Davidson made an appearance during "Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update" to address the controversial Pro-Trump comments that Kanye West made off-air during last week's episode.
He joked, "Speaking strictly for myself, what Kanye said after we went off the air last week was one of the worst, most awkward things I've ever seen here. And I've seen Chevy Chase speak to an intern. We all had to stand behind him, and here is what it looked like."
Showing footage from the rapper's rant, Pete is seen with his head down. "I'm here on the left and I'm like, 'Oh, god'. And then I'm like, 'I want a career.' So I leave," as he's seen exiting the stage.
"So, Kanye was wearing a MAGA hat… and he started by saying people backstage tried to bully him into not wearing it. He wore it all week. Like, nobody told him not to wear it. I wish I bullied you. I wish I would've suggested that it might upset some people like, your wife, or every black person ever."
Pete shared some of the things Kanye was complaining about.
"Then Kanye said that Democrats broke up black families with welfare, and that slavery is not real. Do you know how wrong about politics you have to be for, like, me to notice? Do you know how annoying that is?"
He then added, "Kanye is a genius, but like a musical genius. Like Joey Chestnut is a hot dog eating genius. I don't want to hear Joey Chestnut's opinion about things that aren't hot dog related."
When Colin Jost asked Pete how Kanye could win his affection back, the comedian pulled out a red hat that read "Make Kanye 2006 Again."
