VIDEO: SNL Tackles College Admissions Scandal in Cold Open

Saturday Night Live has shifted from its typical politically-charged cold opens to tackle one of the biggest stories today: the college admissions scandal.

In the sketch, a group of prisoners (Kate McKinnon, Kenan Thompson, Pete Davidson, Chris Redd, Michael Keaton, Kyle Mooney) discuss why they got arrested.

Kate McKinnon played Loughlin who announced that her crime was that she "paid 500 grand to a women's crew coach to say my daughter was good at rowing. I'm loco."
