In the Nov. 3 Saturday Night Live cold open, Kate McKinnon reprised her impression of Fox News host Laura Ingraham to discuss the migrant caravan, perpetuating what Seth Meyers dubbed Trump’s “scaremongering” about the refugees.
“All of a sudden, the term nationalist is bad,” McKinnon’s Ingraham lamented. “The word white is bad. The phrase white nationalist is bad.”
Her first guest was Cecily Strong as Judge Jeanine Pirro, whose rant about the caravan was similarly loaded with racism and myths. “What will happen when they get here?” McKinnon’s Ingraham asked. “Just look at this footage of the caravan crossing into Mexico,” Strong’s Pirro said before cutting to a well known scene of zombies climbing over each other from the Brad Pitt movie World War Z.
