'It's a nice change to see women pay for an hour with Matt Gaetz!' SNL rips Florida Rep for speaking at women's event amid sex trafficking allegations and blasts Derek Chauvin's defense in cold open

 Saturday Night Live has ripped embattled congressman Matt Gaetz following news that he is under federal investigation for allegedly trafficking and having sex with an underage girl.  

During a 'Weekend Update' segment on the NBC skit show, comedian Colin Jost poked fun at the Florida Rep. for his decision to speak at a Women For America First event amid the scandal. 

'Our favorite Florida congressman Matt Gaetz... allegedly sent $900 on Venmo to a sex trafficker who then forwarded that same exact money to three young women in payments labeled 'Tuition and school'. If true, it would make him the only congressman actually helping with student loans,' Jost joked. 

He added: 'At least Gaetz is taking the allegations seriously. That's why yesterday he spoke at the Women For America First summit, which is a nice change to see women pay for an hour with Matt Gaetz.'

During the Women For America First event - which was held in Miami on Friday night - Gaetz took to the podium, where he declared he had the support of former President Donald Trump, as well as the backing of Reps. Majorie Taylor Greene and Jim Jordan. 

Th mention of those three names amused Jost, who wisecracked on the Weekend Update segment: 'Did he think those were good character references? Who is next on his list? The ghost of Jeffrey Epstein?'

Conservative Gaetz was not the only politician targeted during the Weekend Update segment, with Jost also ribbing California's Democrat Senator Gavin Newsom. 

He claimed the left-wing politician - who is currently likely set to face a recall election this year - had the same haircut as American Psycho character, Patrick Bateman. 


Meanwhile, producers of Saturday Night Live chose to use their cold open to discuss the trial of police officer Derek Chauvin, who is facing charges of murdering black man George Floyd in Minneapolis last May. 

In the skit, SNL stars Kate McKinnon, Alex Moffat, Kenan Thompson and Ego Nwodim played local newscasters discussing the trial. 

The skit made light of the differing ways black and white Americans may be viewing the ongoing legal proceedings, with McKinnon and Moffat playing politically correct white anchors making tone-deaf comments to their black colleagues.

'You can least admit this country has made a lot of progress recently,' Moffat's character stated. 

'Look, I want to choose my words carefully here, so to quote Thomas Jefferson...' the character continued before being interrupted by his irate black colleagues.

'You mean DMX!' Thompson's character stated. 

'I mean Prince Phillip of England,' McKinnon shot back.
