‘SNL’ parodies Rudy Giuliani and Melissa Carone’s viral Michigan hearing

“Saturday Night Live” wasted no time spoofing the hearing that took place before the Michigan State Senate on Tuesday.

During the episode’s cold open, a farting Rudy Giuliani (played by Kate McKinnon) called on his star witness, Melissa Carone (Cecily Strong), to discuss alleged voter fraud.

Carone went viral shortly after her appearance for her eyebrow-raising testimony.

“I personally saw hundreds if not thousands of dead people vote,” she said. “I remember because I was walking out and they were walking out and they gave their votes to Democrats.”.

Strong’s Carone maintained she wasn’t lying, saying she “signed an after-David” as opposed to an affidavit.

“David signed and then I signed right after David,” she explained.

“SNL” also highlighted Carone slurring her words during the testimony, having her walk off stage saying “you’re lucky I need another drink.”.

She appeared later to say that Dominion “cheated me out of my cheesy bread,” confusing the voting system company with the pizza chain, Dominos.

“Maybe you want to pull it back a little, I’m afraid you’re making us look foolish,” McKinnon’s Giuliani chimed in.

When McKinnon’s Giuliani was asked if he had any “witnesses that have testimony based in reality,” he replied, “Yes, I do.”.

“The defense calls Nicole Kidman’s character from ‘The Undoing,'” McKinnon’s Giuliani said to laughs from the audience.

“Your honor, my husband Hugh Grant is innocent,” Chloe Fineman said, referencing the plot of the 2020 HBO mystery-thriller television miniseries. “There’s no way he could have been that murderer. He’s too hot and white.”.

Viewers were quick to praise the sketch on social media.

“Cecily strong as melissa carone is everything i ever wanted and more,” @mer__maid said on Twitter.

“LMFAO, Cecily Strong is doing the Melissa Carone character on SNL, and it is SPOT ON,” user @mmpadellan tweeted.
