In “Saturday Night time Live’s” cold open edition of the congressional hearing earlier in the week on Fb — showcasing whistleblower Frances Haugen (Heidi Gardner) — it was tricky to tell who was even worse: Facebook or the lawmakers.

Cecily Strong’s Nancy Pelosi vowed to crack down on Fb — just after a laundry list of all individuals other matters the Democrats have to achieve very first. Then she requested “Haugen” if her 2,000 Facebook mates was a “good” amount.

Louisiana GOP Sen. John Kennedy (Kyle Mooney) desired to know what an “algorithm” was: “Do you have it with you?” … and “How large is this algorithm?” as he moved his hands farther and farther apart.

“Just cease,” mentioned a disgusted Gardner.

Aidy Bryant’s Ted Cruz questioned how to shut down “toxic extremist” teams like “Ted Cruz sucks.”

That, said the faux Haugen, “isn’t seriously misinformation.”

Sen. Lindsay Graham (James Austen Johnson) asked: “When you open up an incognito website page on Google, does that prevent God from looking at what you are doing?”

The clueless lawmakers also had scads of thoughts about the meaning of numerous memes (or as “Cruz” known as them, “meh-mehs”). Cruz also asked if the “dark web is the same as Black Twitter.”

At last, up popped Pete Davidson, actively playing “OG social media king” Tom Anderson, co-founder of My Space. “Remember me?” he requested. “I was harmless.”
