This week “Saturday Night Live” returned with a spoof of MSNBC’s weekday morning talk show “Morning Joe.”
The cold opening featured sexual tension between hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, portrayed by SNL’s Alex Moffat and Kate McKinnon. Just this week it was announced that the two are engaged following speculation that they shared an off-air romance.
The skit focused on their reporting on the Republican healthcare bill, which would partially repeal and replace Obamacare. But much to their panelists’ horror, the two repeatedly got caught up on words that were taken as having suggestive meanings.
