Saturday Night Live had a bit of fun with the so-called "controversies" surrounding President Obama's address at the Mandela memorial this week during their Cold Open this week.

For anyone who wasn't following the event this week and the outrage by many on the right that followed being made fun of here, we had Fox escalating the Obama "selfie" into an "international incident," the usual suspects taking shots after President Obama shook hands with Cuban President Raul Castro and a man accused of being a fake sign language interpreter who obviously had no business being on the stage with the president.

Can you help us out?
