Play of the Day: The Purpose of the Benghazi Hearings

(NBC)

May 13, 2013

Congress’ most recent investigations into the response to the the September attacks on the United States Consulate in Benghazi were in the news this week and Saturday Night Live was on it. The political cold open featured Bill Hader and Kenan Thompson as the heads of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Hader’s Darrell Issa, in particular, was showed to be fame-hungry and shallow.

The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno also piled on the hearings, criticizing Barack Obama for not paying more attention to the hearings and trying to move the spotlight away from them. Weekend Update went more for the House Republicans by painting the hearings as a political attack on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Fast forward to 2:50 to get a sneak peak of star testimony at the hearings.
