The Washington Post recaps:
“Saturday Night Live” took a break from a cold open focused entirely on President Trump — and instead poked fun at “Morning Joe,” with Kate McKinnon playing Mika Brzezinski and Alex Moffat as Joe Scarborough.
In the sketch, the pair launch into “the most casual of political conversations” about House Republicans’ recent passage of the GOP health-care bill. But they can barely finish a few sentences without getting distracted by their awkward sexual tension — to the horror of their in-studio guests.
Of course, it wasn’t an entirely Trump-free cold open. Midway through the sketch, McKinnon-as-Brzezinski introduces the next guest, and it’s a “publicist named John Miller live from the White House.”
