Saturday night live took a break from politics this week to instead bring viewers “live” coverage of Johnny Depp’s “cuckoo” trial of Amber Heard.
“I know it’s not the most relevant story right now,” said Kate McKinnon as MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace at the top of the cold candid sketch. “But with all the troubles in the world, isn’t it nice to have a message that we can all look at together and say, ‘Oh, glad it’s not me?'”
The sketch centered on the salacious claim that Heard left “faeces” on Depp’s bed, and envisioned the moment his various domestics discovered the “dookie” in question.
When Heard’s attorney disagreed, saying it had nothing to do with Depp’s guilt or innocence, Cecily Strong’s judge replied, “That’s true, but I will allow it. Because it sounds like fun and this attempt is for fun.”
Meanwhile, Kyle Mooney did his best to embody Depp’s smirking responses to the lawyers’ questions. “Mr. Depp, do you find this trial amusing?” asked the judge. “A little, yes,” he replied.
“Okay, I think I’ve seen enough,” the judge finally concluded. “This study gave me a lot to think about. On the one hand, I believe Mr. Depp’s story, but on the other hand, your constant little grin lets me know that this isn’t the first woman you’ve pissed off into pooping in your bed.”
“I guess I’m known for being a… total nightmare,” Depp said in response, putting on his sunglasses, to which the judge said, “Right, OK, either way, I’m just so glad I did.” not am.”
