“Saturday Night Live” pulled out all the stops in its cold open to mega-hype a tongue-in-cheek PANIC over the CARAVAN!
Who’s in the caravan heading north to the U.S. border?
“Everyone you’ve ever seen in your nightmares,” Cecily Strong’s Jeanine Pirro tells McKinnon. “Its got Guatemalans, Mexicans, ISIS, the Menendez brothers, the 1990 Detroit Pistons, Thanos and several Babadooks.”
It also has “hella” Middle Eastern Aladdins. “They took the very common direct flight from Iran to Guatemala, claimed their elephants as service animals, and then rode them straight into Mexico,” warns Strong. “It makes almost too much sense.”
The horrifying scramble of migrants looks surprisingly like a zombie horde straight from a scene in the film “World War Z” — with Brad Pitt.
“We believe he’s actually dating the caravan, which people are labeling the Brad-avan,” says “Pirro.”
McKinnon launched the cold open with a dig at President Donald Trump.
“Except for his words and actions throughout his life, how is he racist?” McKinnon-as-Ingraham asks. She also bemoans the fact that the phrase “white nationalist” is now considered “bad.”
McKinnon touted an update on “disgraced former actor Alec Baldwin, seen here molesting a young Boy Scout.” A photo showed a scene from an infamous 1994 “SNL” sketch with Baldwin’s Boy Scout troop leader hitting on Adam Sandler’s Canteen Boy.
