SNL Cold Open Parodies Fox News Coverage of Immigrant "Caravan"

SNL Cold Open Parodies Fox News Coverage of Immigrant

"Baldwin was the first person I ever experienced being blocked by on Twitter, after he used his account with hundreds of thousands of followers to berate me for. writing about a fundraiser he'd hosted in a way he didn't find satisfactory", Haberman said.

With Kate McKinnon taking on the role of Fox News host Laura Ingraham and Cecily Strong adding her manic comic energy to an incredible impression of conservative pundit Jeanine Pirro, SNL didn't pull any punches when it came to slamming the right-leaning news organization.

McKinnon started the sketch with discussion of Trump himself, dispelling claims that he was racist by saying, "Except for his words and actions throughout his life, how is he racist?"

Tara Palmeri (pictured above right), an ABC News White House correspondent, is now recalling on Twitter how Baldwin once said something incredibly bad to her when she was working as a tabloid reporter in New York City. "When I think of white nationalist I just think of a fun Fourth of July barbecue, the kind you don't have to call the cops on".

"It's an absolute disgrace", said Strong's Pirro.

"It's got Guatemalans, Mexicans, ISIS, the Menéndez brothers, the 1990 Detroit Pistons, Thanos and several Babadooks", said Strong as Pirro.

DECISION 2018: What you need to know on this Election Day
More than 165,400 Oklahomans already have voted in this general election through the three-day early voting period and by mail. According to the Associated Press, turnout in 2014 was only about 36 percent, which is considered low even for a midterm.

The horrifying scramble to get into America looks surprising like a zombie horde straight from a scene in the the film "World War Z" - with Brad Pitt. "Take a look at this footage of the caravan from earlier today..."

The fake Ingraham then gave some voting tips to her black and Hispanic viewers.

Later in the sketch Kenan Thompson appeared as David Clarke, who pointed out that if immigrants walked at a "normal pace of 300 miles a day" they could arrive at the border just in time to vote on election day.

Ingraham asked Pirro what she's heard about the caravan.

Clarke also said that the women in the caravan are over nine months pregnant, and will "literally drop anchor" once in the US, with babies who are also pregnant. McKinnon's Ingraham asked after watching the clip.
