Kate McKinnon Plays Lori Loughlin in Jail On SNL
Poking fun at the recent college admissions scandal, Kate McKinnon took on the role of Lori Loughlin who is facing charges for her part in the scam.
In this week's 'cold open' McKinnon took on the role of the Fuller House star as a prison inmate in Chino, California, while guest star Michael Keaton portrayed WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
"Son, I'm the craziest dude in here -- stabbed my neighbour to death, then ate his fingers so they couldn't I.D. the body," Kenan Thompson's character said in the skit.
"Oh yeah? You think that's insane? I paid 500 grand to get my daughter into USC," McKinnon said as Loughlin. "I paid 500 grand to a women's crew coach to say my daughter was good at rowing. I'm loco."
"Hold up, you paid 500 grand for USC?" Thompson asked.
"Oh yeah," she replied. "And that's not including the 300 grand I blew on tuition."
Adding that her daughter majored in Communications, she said, "Yeah, and you know what her job is now?"
"She's an influencer on Instagram."
Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, are among the many who were indicted after they allegedly paid $500,000 to a fake charity to have their daughters Isabella Rose and Olivia Jade Giannulli accepted into the University of Southern California as recruits into the women's rowing team.
They were charged with conspiracy to commit fraud, and last week they were also charged with money laundering, with each charge carrying a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
