"Saturday Night Live" took aim at the controversies surrounding President Obama's appearance last week at a memorial service for anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela in South Africa.

The show's opening mocked the president's selfie, taken with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt and British Prime Minister David Cameron.

Thamsanqa Jantjie, a sign language interpreter who used fake hand gestures later claimed he suffered from schizophrenia, was also spoofed.
