VIDEO: Saturday Night Live’s Hilarious Take on General Motors Hearing

SNL’s cold open skewered the new CEO of General Motors, Mary Barra (played by Kate McKinnon), for not knowing anything about the defective ignition switches. Barra is pretty much unable to recall anything about anything, dodging questions and avoiding answering anything that members of Congress throw her way. Barra repeatedly swears this is the NEW GM, not the old GM, and nervously explains, “We’re looking into it.” Barra then tries to escape the hearing, going to ridiculous lengths to leave, all while snapping at the members of the hearing and saying, “The first rule about new GM is that you don’t talk about old GM!”
