NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” poked fun at MSNBC’s “First in the South” Democratic Forum suggesting it was “a debate that no one watches.”

SNL’s Cecily Strong portrayed MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow,  and told Kate McKinnon, who was portraying Hillary Clinton, “Hillary, let’s dive into some tough questions, but don’t worry, not actually tough, just MSNBC tough.” (RELATED: Larry David Calls Deport Racism’s Bluff And Interrupts Donald Trump’s SNL Monologue [VIDEO])

One actual question from the Forum that SNL mocked was when question Clinton was asked, “What language would you most like to learn?”

For the SNL bit, Clinton replied, “I think I’m going to say casual English. You know, there are so many phrases I hear but I don’t know how to use. Like ‘hang out’ or ‘I’m good either way.'” During the candidate forum, the real Clinton said that she would like to learn Spanish.

Another question SNL mocked was what kind of person Clinton was, introvert or extrovert. SNL Clinton replied, “Well Rachel, I would say I’m a little bit of both. I’m an extrovert because I love meeting people and connecting with them and smiling with them but I’m an introvert because no, I don’t.”

SNL mocked the aspect of the Forum where the candidates picked a closed envelope with questions inside, and Bernie Sanders, who was portrayed by Larry David, said, “The one on the far left. So far left it could never be elected.”

Strong called the picking of the envelope a “stupid little game.”
