“Saturday Night Live” is known for its post-election riffs, and the cast did not disappoint following the midterm elections.
The NBC sketch show’s cold open centered on former President Donald Trump’s broken relationship with Fox News and allegations of voter fraud in Arizona.
“Fox & Friends” hosts Steve Doocy (Mikey Day), Ainsley Earhardt (Heidi Gardner) and Brian Kilmeade (Bowen Yang) discussed everyone “turning on Trump” and how Fox informed all employees that the former president was “dead for us”.
“Almost every candidate Trump backed last week lost except one who is still hanging by a thread and who is here with us today,” Doocy said as he introduced Republican gubernatorial hopeful Kari. Lake (Cecily Strong) from Arizona.

“I’m convinced the election is rigged and the results should be thrown out,” Lake said when Earhardt informed her that the results put her “neck to neck” with her Democratic opponent.
Throughout the segment, the results continually changed. When they were in favor of Lake, she said, “I always said it was a democracy. Trust the system.” But when they weren’t, the bogus candidate said, “Our system is down.”
Despite “Fox & Friends” holding back Trump (James Austin Johnson), the former president still managed to make his voice heard. “Everyone goes to Florida for the sun, but listen…I made (Governor) Ron DeSantis. He was gonna lose until I sent FBI agents to fix this election. But he’s ungrateful and now he’s trying to steal my sunshine,” Trump told the hosts.
Trump was then informed that he could no longer return to “Fox & Friends.” “What did I do? Was it the insurrection? The impeachments? Blackmail Ukraine? Charlottesville? The murder? Just kidding,” he said before insisting that he will be re-elected.

‘SNL’ Previews HBO’s ‘House of the Dragon’ Season 2
The midterm elections may be at the forefront of everyone’s mind, but for “SNL” host Dave Chappelle, it’s HBO’s “House of the Dragon.”
“I love that they include black characters. But to be honest, the black characters kinda take me out. … It’s kind of shocking,” Chappelle joked. “You’re like where are these people from?”
The comedian said “SNL” creator Lorne Michaels was able to get an exclusive preview of “House of the Dragon” Season 2.
Lord of the Tides (Kenan Thompson) visited the Queen after she returned from the sea. “That’s where my people are most at home. The ocean. We especially love being on ships. We never had any worries about the ships or what might happen to us on the ships,” he joked.
Chappelle appeared in the skit as several characters, including Rick James and drug addict Tyrone Biggums from his former show Comedy Central. Special guests Ice-T and Donnell Rawlings reprized their characters from “The Playa Haters Ball.”
