SNL Cold Open: Jodi Arias Weighs In On Benghazi Hearings (VIDEO)

This week’s Saturday Night Liveparodied the Benghazi hearings and convicted murderer Jodi Arias was asked for her viewpoint on the incident.

SNL in the skit actually tried to poke fun at the Republicans with this skit by having Jodi Arias as a witness in the Benghazi hearing. They were making a statement about Jodi and the ridiculous attention given to her during the entire trial.

Mocking the GOP’s determination of a cover-up in the Benghazi attacks, Saturday Night Live held its own House Oversight Committee hearings. The comedy skit featured Gowdy, played by Taran Killam, along with committee chair Darrell Issa and Elijah Cummings.

Issa and Cummings were portrayed by Bill Hader and Keenan Thompson, respectively

This week's episode was hosted by Kristen Wiig (who’s return was highly anticipated by her fans) with musical guest Vampire Weekend.

Kristen Wiig was welcomed back on the show with glee.  In her incredibly delightful opening monologue, Wiig sang to the tune of The Pointer Sisters’ “I’m so Excited” to show how good she felt about being back on the show again.

Watch SNL’s Benghazi hearing in the video above and let us know with your comments about what you think about Jodi’s portrayal.
