‘Saturday Night Live’ cold open tackles Kyle Rittenhouse’s acquittal

NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” started its latest show with a parody of Jeanine Pirro weighing in on Kyle Rittenhouse’s acquittal.

Cecily Strong started the cold with a caricature of the former New York prosecutor in a fake episode of “Justice With Judge Jeanine.”

“The lovable scam was subjected to a nightmare by a lawsuit, just to do the most American thing anyone can do,” she barked. “Protecting an empty used parking space in someone else’s city.”

The Conservative host then got liberal commentators to weigh in on the verdict.

“We were told you invited us in the interest of justice,” said featured player Chloe Fineman, who mimicked an NPR-speaking head.

“And you fell for it, it’s on you, dumb-dumb,” replied Strong’s angry character, as she apparently sipped on booze from her coffee cup.

Chris Redd portrayed a Howard University professor giving a counterpoint to the NPR commentator’s shock over the outcome of the Kenosha trial.

“I’ve never seen anything like it before,” Fineman said.

“I have many, many times,” opposed Redd.

“I feel like they are not who we are,” she continued.

“That’s it, though,” he lamented.

Actor Alex Moffat left Senate Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s eight-hour tirade on the floor of the house as he tossed a water bottle around to fill the time.

“And the brave man prevented the Build Back Better Bill from being passed until it was passed the next day in two minutes,” Pirro said.

James Austin Johnson’s imitation of Donald Trump got the most laughs in the sketch as he went on a meandering robbery that started with the infrastructure bill and ended with ridiculous pop culture observations that thrilled the fictional Pirro.

“It’s awful what they’re doing with Dua Lipa’s husband not being attractive. We have to do something about it. She’s tall, she’s Armenian – who’s basically white – and you know who else is white. “Builder Bob, build the wall, Trump 2024,” said Johnson’s Trump.

The episode hosted Simu Liu, who introduced himself as “Marvel’s first Chinese superhero” and explained how he was able to score the lead role in “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”.

“Just like any Canadian gets their big breakthrough: by asking politely,” Liu snapped.

A fake Target ad offered offers to help Americans get through awkward Thanksgiving gatherings, including headphones when older relatives start talking about politics, barbecue lighters smoking cigarettes in the driveway, and toys that “kids can ruin when they stay alone in the basement. “

A fake game show called “Republican or Not” featured a host played by Kenan Thompson, who introduced guests and asked participants to guess their political affiliation based on short statements.

“God, I hate cops,” Kyle Mooney said.

“Not a Republican,” Ego Nwodim buzzed.

“Incorrect. He was talking about these officers,” Thompson said, showing a picture of police trying to prevent rioters from breaking into the Capitol.

Late. Liz Cheney, played by Strong, then listed her conservative credentials, but was exposed for actually being a Democrat due to a backlash from the Wyoming Republicans over her criticism of Trump.

“Like it or not, you’re Rachel Dolezal from the Republican Party,” Thompson said.

Pete Davidson was joined by “Walking in Memphis” singer Marc Chon, Wu-Tang Clans Method Man and Big Wet for a parody song about his hometown.

“We have a lot of cops, a ton of pills,” he sang in “Walking in the State,” while nodding to other Staten Island stereotypes by presenting babies wearing gold chains, dead bodies in the water, and racist Italian-Americans.

“Weekend Update” anchors told several jokes about the Rittenhouse verdict, including a brawl about how crowds of protesters took to the streets to march against the jury’s decision.

“Which is brave, because Rittenhouse just relaxed to shoot protesters. I do not know, maybe do not tempt him,” Micheal Che cracked.

Colin Jost joked that rep. Matt Gaetz said his office would be open to hiring Rittenhouse as a congressional intern.

“Gaetz has always loved teens who are willing to do terrible things,” Jost said, alluding to Florida Pole’s teenage sex trafficking charges.

Rapper Saweetie took the stage in Studio 8H to perform a medley of her tunes “Tap In” and “Best Friend” as well as “Icy Chain”.

The show is now entering a two-week break, but is scheduled to return to the air on December 11, when Billie Eilish will host and perform as a musical guest.
