Rupert Murdoch and "Fox And Friends," Fox News' loopy morning show, were spoofed on "Saturday Night Live" on Saturday, with Fred Armisen impersonating the 81-year-old mogul. Watch a clip of the cold open above.

Earlier Saturday, Murdoch--who has been using Twitter as an outlet for his unfiltered political views--lamented the medium.

"Seems impossible to have civilised debate on Twitter," Murdoch wrote. "Ignorant, vicious abuse lowers whole society, maybe shows real social decay."
