‘Saturday Night Live’ Weighs In on the Kyle Rittenhouse Verdict

Day said that the rules he followed during the trial were “all standard procedure.”

“That’s why I ordered that the prosecution not use the word ‘victims,’” he said. “They were rioters. And they weren’t shot. They were ‘gadoinked.’ But that did not give my client an unfair advantage in any way.”

Strong asked him, “Do you mean the defendant?”

“Oh yeah, sure, I keep doing that,” Day replied.

Strong brought out two liberal commentators, played by Chloe Fineman and Chris Redd, who saw the verdict from very different perspectives.

“I was shocked,” Fineman said. (“You were?” Redd responded. “‘Cause I wasn’t.”)

“I’ve never seen anything like it before,” she said. (“I have,” he answered. “Many, many times.”)

“This is not who we are,” Fineman declared. (“I feel like it kind of is,” Redd answered.)

The sketch also featured Alex Moffat as Representative Kevin McCarthy, the House minority leader, in a brief sendup of the eight-hour speech he gave from Thursday night into Friday morning. Strong said of him, “And that brave man stopped the Build Back Better bill from being passed. Until the next day, when it passed in two minutes.”

As in its previous iteration, the segment concluded with an appearance from James Austin Johnson as former President Donald J. Trump. He delivered a couple of free-association riffs on Chris Christie, Bill Maher, Dua Lipa and “Gossip Girl,” and boasted that he had “built it back even better.”
