Long, Overly Topical & Awk AF

The 2018 Emmys kicked off with an overly long and overly topical monologue from hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che that tried hard to be funny … but ended up being cringeworthy.
The ‘SNL’ vets came out standing shoulder-to-shoulder Monday night and threw zinger after zinger after zinger at the board — most of which were so on the nose and didn’t really stick.
Some of the worst attempts at humor came in jokes about the #MeToo movement, with Che saying it was great being there with everyone who hadn’t been caught yet. Jost also quipped that Roseanne Barr had canceled herself, but got picked up by white nationalists.
Another eyebrow-raising line from Che … ‘The Handsmaid’s Tale’ is like the white women’s version of ‘Roots’ … since the characters are forced to have babies and work against their will.
They also took shots at Trump by saying they hoped the Obamas’ Netflix production deal would churn out a new ‘Apprentice’ that got huge ratings … something DT would clearly hate.
