Saturday Night Live satirized the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict made this weekend, at one point joking that "hopefully, he got all that shooting out of his system before he becomes a cop."

There was a lot of news to cover from this week, and "Saturday Night Live" had its Judge Jeanine take it all on.

The Saturday evening show opened with an imitation of Fox News's Judge Jeanine Pirro, played by Cecily Strong, reporting on the Rittenhouse verdict.

"Good evening, I'm Judge Jeanine Pirro, and if anyone watching is wearing a hearing aid, sorry, you're dead now," she began.

"Our top story, Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges. That lovable scamp was put through a nightmare of a trial just for doing the bravest thing any American can do, protecting an empty used car lot in someone else's town," the comedian, impersonating Pirro said. "Now onto our first guest. He's as impartial as a dance mom clapping harder than anyone. Judge Bruce Schroeder."

"Well, it was all standard procedure. That's why I ordered that the prosecution not use the word 'victims.' They were 'rioters ,' and they weren't 'shot' — they were 'gadoynked," the judge character declares. "But that did not give my client an unfair advantage in any way."

The segment also featured a white female legal analyst from NPR alongside a black male Howard University professor deep in discussions of the verdict.

"I've never seen anything like it before," the NPR analyst said.

"I have, many, many times," the professor said back.

"All it does is send a message that any American can just prowl the streets with an AK-47," the NPR character said.

"Any American?" the black professor questioned.

"Weekend Update" also mocked the Rittenhouse verdict.

"Hopefully, he got all that shooting out of his system before he becomes a cop," Michael Che concluded.

Johnson's Trump was there to speak about President Joe Biden's infrastructure bill, but instead went on a rant about reboots, including "iCarly," female Ghostbusters, and "Gossip Girl."

"Why did they reboot 'Gossip Girl?'" Johnson's Trump randomly asked.

He then went on another rant, but this time there was a word search on screen that included Chris Christie, Dua Lipa and Bob the Builder.

Strong's Pirro then yelled, "That's bingo, baby!" as all of former President Trump's thoughts connected.

She then went straight into the show's signature catchphrase, "Live from New York! It's Saturday night!"
