Saturday Night Live loves its recurring characters, who now include Laura Ingraham (Kate McKinnon) and Judge Jeanine Pirro (Cecily Strong), who graced last night’s SNL cold open for the second time in a month. The spoof of Ingraham’s wacky Fox News show holds nothing back, beginning with the host’s harsh monologue on the midterm blue wave.

“Let’s talk about the rampant voter fraud that allowed Democrats to literally steal the election,” she rants. “Some have claimed that suburban women revolted against the Republican party, but doesn’t it feel more true that all Hispanics voted twice? You can’t dismiss that idea simply because it isn’t true and sounds insane.”

Judge Jeanine chimes in with her brilliant “reporting” on voter fraud, which echoes Trump’s lunatic claims. What she has are clips from old movies: Tyler Perry from Madea, “voting twice in Atlanta,” and Eddie Murphy with the Klump family from The Nutty Professor, seen by Jeanine as a man pretending to be five different people. When Laura asks if that’s really Eddie Murphy, she agrees. “It’s as if he really wants to be caught.”

And there’s more, including Alex Moffat as Mark Zuckerberg and Leslie Jones as Nancy Pelosi’s would-be nemesis Rep.  Marcia Fudge (D-OH).

Not surprisingly, Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, his Democratic opponent and a trolling master, has taken acerbic note of this curious situation in a certain television host's style -- and then dropped an amusing video via Twitter.

(Reuters) -Walmart Inc, the largest private employer in the United States, is expanding abortion and travel coverage for employees, about two months after the Supreme Court overturned the landmark Roe v. Wade decision that legalized the procedure nationwide.

In a Friday memo to its 1.6 million U.S. employees that was seen by Reuters, the retailer said its self-insured healthcare plans will now cover abortion "when there is a health risk to the mother, rape or incest, ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage or lack of fetal viability."
