Che continued, “After news that Walker paid for his ex-girlfriend’s abortion, he raised over $500,000, because dollars were the only thing Walker was willing to donate.”
After that, Che often mocked SNL musical guest Kanye West for protect my “White Lives Matter” shirt on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program. While West says he’s using his “gut instinct,” the comedian joked, “What he’s definitely not using are the medications prescribed to him.”
And finally, Jost shared the news that Planned Parenthood is planning to open its first mobile abortion clinic by joking that it will “help with patient care anywhere in the country Hershel Walker’s visit just got easier.”
