Cecily Strong played the former New York prosecutor in the Justice With Judge Jeanine parody.

“That lovable scamp was put through a nightmare of a trial just for doing the most American thing anyone can do. Protecting an empty used car lot in someone else’s town,” she said during the sketch, which included pundits weighing in on the verdict.

Weekend Update also addressed the jury’s decision, including protests afterward.

“Which is brave because Rittenhouse just got off for shooting protestors. I don’t know maybe don’t tempt him,” Michael Che said.

Colin Jost joked about Rep. Matt Gaetz saying his office would be open to hiring the teen as a congressional intern.

Gaetz has always loved teenagers that are willing to do terrible things,” he said, referring to the Representative’s allegations.
