Senator John Kennedy (R-La.) gave a snarky appraisal of GOP Senate members’ meeting with President Trump on Capitol Hill Tuesday, saying it was positive because “nobody called anyone an ignorant slut.”

“It was a very positive meeting. Nobody called anyone an ignorant slut,” Kennedy said, according to Independent Journal Review’s Haley Byrd.

Kennedy was referring to the famous “Point Counterpoint” sketch from Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update. 

SNL star Dan Aykroyd would begin each response to fellow cast member Jane Curtin with the phrase, “Jane, you ignorant slut.”

Trump met with GOP senators on tax reform during a closed-door lunch Tuesday. The meeting took place after Trump and Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) reignited a feud on Twitter and during TV appearances.

Kennedy told reporters that the exchanges hadn’t come up during the meeting, despite both Corker and Trump having attended the lunch.
