SNL has fun with NATO summit and impeachment

Two weeks ago, SNL had fun with the first set of impeachment hearings and the fifth Democratic debate.  This week, there was no debate — the sixth one will happen next week — so impeachment was a major source of humor, beginning with NATO Cafeteria Cold Open, featuring an all-star cast of comedians as world leaders.

Foreign leaders (Jimmy Fallon, Paul Rudd, James Corden) that were caught making fun of President Trump (Alec Baldwin) at the NATO summit continue their taunting in the cafeteria.
I'll be honest; if it weren't for James Corden as Boris Johnson taping to the "Impeach Me" sign to Alec Baldwin as Trump, I might have not embedded this video because, as funny as it is, it wouldn't have fit the theme.

SNL had more fun with impeachment in Weekend Update: Moving Forward with Impeachment.

Weekend Update anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che tackle the week's biggest news, like the House democrats moving forward with impeachment against Donald Trump.
Finally, SNL returned to the topic of impeachment with its own take on Nancy Pelosi asking for articles of impeachment with Weekend Update: Nancy Pelosi Prays for Donald Trump.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Kate McKinnon) stop by Weekend Update address a reporter's accusation that she hates President Trump and to offer him a prayer.
Kate McKinnon and the writers did a good job of lampooning Pelosi.  Just the same, I don't know if I'd those prayers said on my behalf.

That's it for the Sunday entertainment feature.  I'll conclude by being a good environmentalist and recycling my closing from two weeks ago: "I like the news better when I can laugh at it.  I think my readers do, too.  Happy Sunday!"
