The second episode of season 44 of "Saturday Night Live" began with a CNN report on the celebratory scene in the GOP "locker room" after Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court.

Host Don Lemon, portrayed by "SNL" cast member Kenan Thompson, opened the segment describing how there had been "protests in Washington and several cry breaks here at CNN."

The sketch moved to the "euphoric" atmosphere in the locker room where a CNN reporter spoke with several happy male Republican senators, as well as Susan Collins of Maine -- a moderate Republican whose last-minute decision to back Kavanaugh helped solidify his confirmation.

“The last thing I wanted was to make this about me,” said Collins, played by Cecily Strong, referring to a Friday speech in which the senator revealed she would vote in favor of the judge. “That’s why I told everyone to tune in at 3 p.m. to tell all my female supporters, ‘Psych!'”

Also featured in the sketch on NBC were Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., played by "SNL" cast member Beck Bennett, who said, "Everyone is pumped -- from white men over 60 to white men over 70"; and Sen. Lindsey Graham, again played by Kate McKinnon, who said, “How amazing is this? We made a lot of women real worried today, but I’m not getting pregnant, so I don’t care.”

Additional appearances included Sen. Jeff Flake, portrayed by Pete Davidson, who got pied in the face after saying he was "really sad about the whole process as you can tell from my resting bitch face,” and Arizona prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, played by Aidy Bryant. On the Democrat side, Sen. Joe Manchin (Mikey Day), the sole Democrat to vote for Kavanaugh, ran past Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (Alex Moffatt) and hit him in the genitals yelling, "nut tap!"
