SNL: Second Presidential Debate Spoofed In Cold Open

Saturday Night Live took on the second presidential debate this week, with Jay Pharoah playing President Obama and Jason Sudeikis as Mitt Romney. Newcomer Aidy Bryant appeared as moderator Candy Crowley.

The candidates took on taxes, jobs and the Keystone XL pipeline. The skit also recreated the now-infamous Crowley fact-checking moment. Tom Hanks even made a cameo to ask a truly thought-provoking question about Libya.

Bonus: Fred Armisen appears as everyone's favorite college student, Jeremy!

Watch above for the full sketch.
