First lady Melania Trump rolled out her "Be Best" campaign earlier in the week, a children-focused policy platform that targets bullying, drug use and suicide. It did not spare her from being a target of "Weekend Update" anchor Michael Che, however.

"Melania Trump, or as I've been calling her, sexy Michael Jackson, unveiled her 'Be Best' campaign -- as in, it would be best if you got a divorce."

The "sexy Michael Jackson" comment drew a mixed reaction of applause and groans.

Even for having a good week, Trump wasn't spared some criticism.

"I have to admit, President Trump had a pretty good week," Colin Jost said. "He showed up at the airport [to greet the North Korea prisoners] and didn't say, 'Wait I thought they were American?'"

Trump also claimed to break the 3 a.m. ratings record in the press conference following the prisoners' return, "which is not true, the 3 a.m. ratings record was set by liberals on election night hoping they were being pranked," Jost joked.
