'Saturday Night Live' targets Cruz, Cuomo

"Saturday Night Live" in its latest episode poked fun at a pair of prominent politicians caught up in scandals this week. 

During a skit titled "Oops, You Did It Again," with Chloe Fineman playing host Britney Spears, the sketch comedy show spoofed Sen. Ted CruzRafael (Ted) Edward CruzThe Hill's Morning Report - Presented by National Industries for the Blind - Schumer: Dem unity will happen eventually; Newsom prevails The Memo: Like the dress or not, Ocasio-Cortez is driving the conversation again Ocasio-Cortez defends attendance of Met Gala amid GOP uproar MORE (R-Texas), who was criticized for traveling to Cancun, Mexico, with his family while a deadly winter storm hit his state, and New York Gov.

"I'm in a little bit of hot water, which I'm told is a thing nobody in Texas has," Aidy Bryant's Cruz says.

Bryant's Cruz then says he "deeply regrets" his trip to Mexico, "especially flying United." 

The lawmaker then apologizes, saying, "I'm pretty bad at human stuff." 

"Would a coward have the cojones to blame his actions on his young daughters?" he asks. 

Comedian Pete Davidson then joins the skit, depicting Cuomo. 

"Some of the people who died in nursing homes were not counted as nursing home deaths," Davidson's Cuomo admits. "It's like what happens at Disney World. People die, and they move the bodies. They say, 'Oh, I guess Brenda died in the parking lot and not in the tea cups." 

Bryant's Cruz then leans over to commiserate, saying they are both "strong, misunderstood men." 

"Do not associate yourself with me," Davidson's Cuomo tells Bryant's Cruz.

"We are not the same. I am a man. You are a clown. And if you mess with me, I will send you to a clown hospital. And when you die, I will not count your body," he added.
