“Saturday Night Live” took aim at Republican senators who voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, depicting them celebrating inside the GOP “locker room.”
The show’s 5-minute opening sketch began with Kenan Thompson playing CNN host Don Lemon behind an anchor desk as staff members took “cry breaks” over the vote.
He then turned it over to CNN political correspondent Dana Bash, played by Heidi Gardner, who described the mood in the Republican locker room as “nothing short of euphoric.”
Senators were dancing, hugging and celebrating in the background.
“There are quite a few pacemakers being put to the test tonight,” she said.
