‘SNL': Pete Davidson Returns With Good News About His Drug-Free Sex Life (Video)

“I have dreams now and started waking up with boners again!” joked Davidson while also lampooning the Trump administration

Pete Davidson made his proud return to “Saturday Night Live” this weekend after taking time off from the show to quit drugs. The 23-year-old comedian quickly returned to his old routine as the “resident young person” on “Weekend Update,” giving his first impressions on the latest political news coming out of Washington.

After starting out his bit with some riffs on Donald Trump defenders like Sean Hannity and Stephen Miller, Davidson turned his attention to Paul Ryan’s recently released plan to replace the Affordable Care Act. Davidson noted that Republicans had been calling for Ryan and the GOP leadership to come up with a way to replace Obamacare, only to hate the proposal Ryan came up with. Davidson says he empathizes with Ryan’s struggle.

“For years people have been asking me to quit drugs and get sober,” he said, “and now that I have, everyone thinks I’m unfunny and boring. But hey, at least I have dreams now and started waking up with boners again!”

On a more serious but heartfelt note, Davidson posted a picture on Instagram last Monday with a note thanking “SNL” fans for their support.

“I quit drugs and am happy and sober for the first time in 8 years,” Davidson wrote. “It wasn’t easy, but I got a great girl, great friends and I consider myself a lucky man. I’ll always be here for you guys, I promise. Remember to never give up hope because sometimes that’s all we got. We are a family and I appreciate all your love and support.”
