I cannot believe that this was the actual cold open for SNL tonight. Could they possibly be more sanctimonious?

Actually, I can believe it. These people have a sense of self-awareness like hotels in Mecca have Jimmy Dean sausage on the breakfast buffet. By now nobody expects SNL to be funny except sporadically, but this was such an unintentionally self-parodic expression of the cluelessness of the coastal cultural elite that it will one day be used in history classes to help explain why Trump happened.
