Saturday Night Live usually takes on the biggest talkers of the week in its cold open segment, and it was no different on Feb. 13. Not surprisingly, the bit -- like the news -- was dominated by the Senate's acquittal of Donald Trump earlier in the day, but pop princess Britney Spears got a mention too.
The segment kicked off with Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight, with Alex Moffat playing the program's host, and Kate McKinnon as "65-year-old teacher's pet" Sen. Lindsey Graham.
McKinnon's smug Graham began by noting that it was a "great day for 30% of America" before slamming the "offensive and absurd" trial in which 57 senators voted to convict Trump of inciting the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. "We all agree the attack on the Capitol was a horrible thing," the comedian's Graham said. "Just because the rioters were yelling 'Fight for Trump' doesn't mean they meant Donald Trump. Could've been some real Tiffany-heads, maybe even some Eric stans."
