SNL Skewers Fox News’ Migrant Caravan Coverage in Cold Open

Saturday Night Live took on Fox News with a sketch skewering some of the Fox News personalities and their fearmongering coverage of the migrant caravan.

Kate McKinnon reprised her role as Fox News’ Laura Ingraham.

“All of a sudden, the term nationalist is bad,” she said at one point during the faux Fox report. “The word white is bad. The phrase white nationalist is bad.”

Judge Jeanine Pirro, as played by Cecily Strong, also made an appearance where she said she had seen the caravan with her own eyes.

“I have seen it with my own eyes,” SNL Pirro said, adding, “It has to be real, I found it on trutheagle.gun.”

“Just look at this footage of the caravan crossing into Mexico,” SNL’s Pirro also noted, showing footage from movies as ‘proof’ of what the caravan really looks like including one featuring Brad Pitt and zombies.

Kenan Thompson also made an appearance as Sheriff David Clarke in the cold open which ended with a surprise dig at Alec Baldwin.
