“Saturday Night Live” opened its most recent episode by panning the January 6th House Committee hearings.
The cast poked fun at RINO Rep. Liz Cheney, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and other committee members.
“One person is responsible for this insurrection. Donald Trump. And one person will suffer the consequences. ME!” said Heidi Gardner, who was playing Cheney.
Her bit came after being introduced by the committee’s chair, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), played by Kenan Thompson.
“January 6 was one of the most dramatic and consequential moments in our nation’s history, so to fight back we assembled a team of monotone nerds to do a PowerPoint,” Kenan Thompson said.
The sketch also mocked Democrat leaders like Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
“Real leaders like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer were bunkered in a Senate hideaway trying to save the country,” one comedian read.
“Hello DoorDash, it’s Chuck Schumer. Yes, we still haven’t received our lunch order and yes I did change the drop off location due to some unfortunate treason. But it still should have arrived by now,” said Sarah Sherman, who played Schumer.
The sketch included Pelosi’s unearthed violent threat against President Trump, saying she’d punch him in the face and be happy going to jail.
“Well, I can already see this a complete zero. I want to thank my colleagues for throwing away their summers, and in some cases their careers, to serve on this committee,” Kenan Thompson concluded.
Infowars added further details:
Pelosi was mocked over her repeated mentions at Thursday’s hearing of her receiving a report someone defecated on the House floor.
“America, I don’t know what more we could possibly show you, except maybe this clip of Nancy Pelosi saying poo-poo,” said Kenan Thompson.
“There is poo-poo, there is poo-poo on the walls of the Capitol,” Chloe Fineman, as Pelosi, said.
Even Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), played by Andrew Dismukes, was ridiculed over his tough-guy posturing.
“Trump is a hundred percent coming, and this time, he will be held accountable,” said Dismukes’s Kinzinger.
“Sure, he got away with a lot of stuff in the 70s, the 80s, the 90s, the early 2000s, the 2010s and the early 2020s, but that ends now, with us,” Dismukes continued as Kinzinger. “Because I’m Mr. Kinzinger, and he will respect my authority.”
The cold open targeted the committee’s hearing on Thursday, where lawmakers unanimously voted to subpoenaed former President Donald Trump.
