On SNL: Piers Morgan, Kanye West, And Kim Kardashian Tackle Trayvon Martin Case

My personal favorite cast member, Taran Killam, got a featured sketch in for the last half hour of the show in a reprisal of his Piers Morgan impression. He was discussing the Trayvon Martin case and had many guests on to weight in, including Florida governor Jeb Bush (Jason Sudeikis, not being especially funny) and Law & Order: SVU star Ice-T (played by Fred Armisen in a goatee that made him so square-jawed I initially thought he was Josh Brolin).

Brolin continued to bring the accents in this episode as the manager of the Miami Marlins, who was there to answer for racist remarks he made that were sure to offend Miami’s large populations of Latinos and Jews, but his thunder was definitely stolen by Jay Pharoah’s Kanye West and Nasim Pedrad’s Kim Kardashian. West was depressed over the Trayvon Martin incident, commenting “I feel for him. Maybe it’s just the black man in me.”

“…I also know what it’s like to have a black man in me,” Kardashian replied. Yup, that happened.
