He appeared on Weekend Update to discuss Kanye's controversial Pro-Trump statements that he made off-air during last week's episode, which made many of the cast members uncomfortable (including him).

"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," he joked. "We all had to stand behind him, and here is what it looked like."

They then showed footage of his rant, where Pete is visibly seen with his head down. "I'm here on the left and I'm like, 'Oh, god,'" he described. "And then I'm like, 'I want a career.' So I leave," which he did.

"So, Kanye was wearing a MAGA hat… and he started by saying people backstage tried to bully him into not wearing it," he explained. "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."

He then continued by sharing some of the things that the "Gold Digger" rapper 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?"

When Weekend Update cohost Colin Jost asked Pete what it would take for Kanye to win his affection back, he then put his own hat on that read "Make Kanye 2006 Again".
