SNL's Kate McKinnon Takes Another Shot At Fox's The Ingraham Angle

Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon returned as Laura Ingraham in this week's Cold Open segment.

As Fox's The Ingraham Angle continues to bleed advertisers, the producers of her show are also doing their best to make life very easy for the writers at Saturday Night Live, because these parodies practically write themselves.

‘SNL’ Cold Open: Kate McKinnon’s Laura Ingraham Scrapes The Fox News Barrel

“Ingraham” rolled through some Fox schtick, including a list of things that “sound true but can’t be dismissed just because it isn’t true and sounds insane.” Among the listicle facts: “Latinos have a baby every three months,” and “If the earth is so warm, then why are my feet cold?”

Next up was Judge Jeanine Pirro (Cecily Strong), who voiced her suspicions on a variety of voter fraud conspiracies. She saw a man vote twice in Atlanta (in reality, Tyler Perry as Madea) and that a single man posed as a family of five (a shot of Eddie Murphy with the Klump family from The Nutty Professor). Asked if that was Eddie Murphy, Pirro had to acknowledge it was. “It’s almost as if he wants to be caught,” she said, adding that her sources came from a Bass Pro Shop parking lot.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was the next guest to drop by. The famously wooden Zuck (played by Alex Moffat) said he couldn’t be more transparent on the social media service’s business, as someone with his skin tone “would be clear” if they were.

Finally, Nancy Pelosi challenger Marcia Fudge (Leslie Jones) joined Ingraham. She said she was challenging Pelosi because “they can never find a way to make fun of me, a middle-aged black woman named Fudge.” She also noted that Nancy Pelosi’s babysitter was a redwood tree.
