"SNL" took several different swipes at the Petraeus scandal on Saturday's Jeremy Renner-helmed episode, including spoofing Paula Broadwell in the cold open, and Seth Meyer's winners and losers segment on Weekend Update.
But the ensemble reserved a heavy does of snark for CNN's coverage of the scandal as well, mocking "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer." The sketch sees Jason Sudeikis as Blitzer, showing the same footage of Jill Kelley leaving her apartment over and over again, as he struggles to report breaking news that isn't exactly breaking.
