Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson (Kenan Thompson), Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan (Cecily Strong) and former Democratic National Convention chair Donna Brazile (Leslie Jones) all weighed in on the controversy. 'In a new low for journalism, the National Enquirer this week was accused of blackmailing Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. You're all highly respected journalists, so when all is said and done, what do you think Jeff Bezos' penis is going to look like?' Mooney's Todd asked, mocking the media's obsession over the photos.Strong's Noonan said: 'When I hear 'billionaire's penis,' I immediately think 'small potatoes,' you know? Like they say, if it's small and looks funny, you better have the money, honey.' Thompson's Robinson said: 'As a journalist, this is not something I ever thought I'd have to cover, but as a human, I'm curious' on whether Bezos was 'working with something the size of an Amazon Echo or the Dot.' The reporters were asking what the story said about the U.S. in general and Thompson's Robinson said he thought it was disgraceful. 'This is a clear violation of someone's privacy,' he said, before adding that when the photos do come out, 'I will look at them. I'll make them into hilarious memes and I'll send them to all my friends.' SNL also mocked the New York Post's real headline about the Bezos controversy as they argued there was some missed opportunity for Amazon-related puns.Thompson's Robinson and Strong's Noonan each held up their own mock-up versions of the Post's headline, saying: 'Your Amazon "package" is on its way' and 'Stroke of Genius: Bezos Gives Pecker The Shaft'. Later in the Meet The Press segment, Kate McKinnon came in as Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross and Aidy Bryant as Attorney General Matt Whitaker. As Bryant's Whitaker said he would be revealing some very important Trump-related news, his interview was interrupted by news that Bezos' photos had just been leaked. Mooney's Todd ended the cold open by promising to cover the Bezos controversy for the rest of the Meet The Press show.
