At the end of a week in which hundreds of people gathered outside a Staten Island bar to protest the COVID lockdown measures, there really was no one better to share his point of view than The King of Staten Island himself, Pete Davidson.
The comedian began by joking, saying that when he saw people “outside the bar shouting about freedom, taunting the cops and chanting that they had to arrest the governor,” he thought it was was just a “typical last call”. Although he’s only ‘kind of’ against the protests, Davidson said he’s mostly glad he’s no longer “the first thing people think of when they say, ‘What’s the worst thing about Staten Island? ‘ ‘
“Well the bar, shockingly, is in a neighborhood with the second highest number of COVID infections in all of New York City, so the rule is they’re only supposed to let people eat or drink outside. outside, ”he explained. “And the owner said nobody wanted to do that because they would go bankrupt. But the argument that the people of Staten Island don’t want to drink outside can be refuted by going to literally any Little League game.
Then Davidson noted that a man at the protest compared not being able to drink inside to being a Jew during the Holocaust, “which must have been inconvenient for the people there who had to. suddenly claiming to believe in the Holocaust.
He then accused the protesters of making the Staten Islanders look ‘like babies’, adding, ‘You know it’s wrong when the people of Boston are like,’ Ahh, drink home, you queers ! ‘”
Finally, Davidson used his “Weekend Update” platform to reach out to the “thousands of people on Twitter who are extremely angry” that he will be playing George Bailey at a virtual table of It’s a wonderful life for charity next week.
“It’s an old movie about a guy who is suicidal,” he says. “I’m notorious for being depressed and I look like someone in a black and white movie.” If this was a “real remake” of the classic film, Davidson said he would agree that it was a “strange casting choice.”
“It would be like restarting The Godfather with Post Malone, ”he joked. “He will make you an offer that you cannot understand.”
And in a final MAGA-loving message to Staten Island residents, he signed: “Biden won, get over it!”
