‘Saturday Night Live’ mocks Fox News coverage of migrant caravan
Saturday Night Live this week mocked Fox News over its coverage of the “caravan” migrants making its way through Central America toward the U.S.
The NBC variety show featured Kate McKinnon, who played Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham and dragged some of the claims being made about the caravan of Central Americans moving towards the United States border.
"Good evening, I'm Laura Ingraham," McKinnon said. "We're live from the Arizona border where a vicious caravan of dozens, maybe millions, of illegal immigrants are heading straight for you and your grandchildren."
In the footage McKinnon's Ingraham said that the liberal media was trying to label President Trump as a racist, but that "except for his words and actions throughout his life" that Trump isn't racist.
"All of a sudden the word 'nationalist' is bad," she said. "The word 'white' is bad. The phrase 'white nationalist' is bad! When I hear the word, 'white nationalist' I just think of a fun Fourth of July barbecue that you don't have to call the cops on."
The fake Fox News host then brought on Fox host Jeanine Pirro, played by Cecily Strong, to add take on the migrant march.
"It's an absolute disgrace," said Strong's Pirro.

"What is?" asked McKinnon's Ingraham.
"Just whatever you are talking about!" Strong's Pirro responded, before showing "clips" of the caravan that were actually clips from crowds rushing into stores on Black Friday and zombies attacking in the film "World War Z."
"Was that Brad Pitt?" McKinnon's Ingraham asked after watching the clip.
"Yes, I actually believe he's dating the caravan, which people have labeled 'Bradavan,'" Strong's Pirro responded.
