'Saturday Night Live' tackles sexual harassment scandals in numerous segments

UPI News Service, 11/12/2017 

Sexual harassment was a running theme on this weekend's edition of "Saturday Night Live," echoing the headlines for current events.

The show opened with a sketch in which Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, played by Mikey Day, vehemently denies to U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, played by Beck Bennett, that he had a sexual relationship with a minor decades ago when he was in his 30s.

"The left-wing media loves to repeat these sexual-harassment stories. There's a new one everyday," Day as Moore said.

"I know, even I heard about Louis C.K. and I'm not allowed to watch TV," Pence said, referring to the comedian -- and frequent "Saturday Night Live" guest host -- who last week publicly admitted he behaved inappropriately around numerous female colleagues.

Pence eventually leaves the room and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, played by Kate McKinnon, pops out of a cabinet and tells Moore he should drop out of the Senate race.

"I'm usually the creepiest one in the room, but I look at you and I'm like, 'Oh, my God!'" McKinnon as Sessions said. "I'm Alabama, but you, you sir, are TOO Alabama."

Later, during the episode's "Weekend Update" segment, Colin Jost quipped, "It's a good weekend to stay inside since it's 20 degrees out and everyone you've ever heard of is a sex monster," while a photo of Moore, C.K., movie producer Harvey Weinstein and actor Kevin Spacey flashed on the screen.

Cecily Strong also showed up as Claire, an exasperated human resources worker, tasked with interviewing Jost to see if he understands what constitutes acceptable workplace behavior.

Jost answered correctly when quizzed about obvious sounding workplace violations.

"You passed," Claire told Jost.

"But I'm sure I'll be back next week and the week after that, forever and ever because all of this isn't just a scandal. It didn't just start last week. It's actual reality for half the population."
