Played Judge Bruce Schroeder. His comments and actions on the bench raised questions about his impartiality. Day, as Judge, asserted that none his moves “gave any client an unfair advantage in anyway.” Pirro pointed out that he used the term “client” instead of defendant. The judge responded, “Oh yeah. I keep doing that.”
Chris Redd and Chloe Fineman were two liberal pundits brought in to debate Pirro. Fineman expressed his idealist views to Snl cold open, and Redd responded that it was not who they are.

Pirro made a slur about President Biden’s colonoscopy last Wednesday (“socialized buttplay paid for by your taxes”), Judge Jeannine then introduced President Donald Trump as the new “SNL” recruit James Austin Johnson.
Johnson, Trump and others said that “people are saying nobody did better for infrastructure than I”

The month of January, after a year that seemed like it would last a decade has somehow managed to pack a lifetime of significant historic events into just a few weeks.
This was the premise for Snl cold open January 30 cold show. It featured a comedy morning talk show called What Still Works?
Kate McKinnon was the host and opened the segment by asking the question: “It is a new year, we have a president, so some should work.” But are they?
A variety of people spoke on topics such as politics, finance, technology and health to answer this question. Each speaker touched on the fact that, in the last few weeks, a new Congress was sworn into office, there was an attempt at insurrection in the US Capitol, ex-President Donald Trump became the first President to be impeached twice and an internet community drove a major stock market crash. The pandemic continues daily to claim thousands of lives.
