Saturday Night Live went after MSNBC’s Morning Joe in this week’s hilarious new cold open, mocking Joe Scarborough’s and Mika Brzezinski’s on-air love affair. They even got in some great shots at Trump.
This weekend Saturday Night Live took aim at MSNBC’s Morning Joe with Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough. Earlier this week Brzezinski and Scarborough finally came out and publicly announced that they are engaged to be married. And SNL took full advantage.
In this week’s opening skit SNL’s Alex Moffat and Kate McKinnon played Brzezinski and Scarborough. And they featured the sexual chemistry and on-air love affair between the two hosts.
In the skit, Brzezinski and Scarborough were reporting on the disastrous new Republican healthcare bill. In between attacking the bill, the two hosts made sexually suggestive comments to one another.
“Oh Mikaaaa…That’s enough. You’re being sickety because you know it pushes my buttons.”
Moving closer Mika whispered, “Does it, push your buttons?”
At one point in the skit, Alec Baldwin’s Trump phoned in pretending to be a publicist named “John Miller.” The skit mocked Trump for having no idea about what’s in the healthcare bill or how a bill becomes a law.
After “Miller” hung up, Mika had a fit calling Trump “mentally ill.”
Scarborough stopped her and said,
“You’re being very naughty. Maybe you need somebody to punish you for being naughty.”
