‘Saturday Night Live’ on Chuck Hagel’s confirmation hearing (VIDEO)

February 11, 2013

NBC's "Saturday Night Live" took on defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel's recent confirmation hearing before the Senate Armed Services. In the real-life hearing, Hagel faced a tough round of questions and a heavy focus on his past statements about Israel. In the spoof, he also faces questions and warnings about Israel, albeit much stranger ones.

Check out the sketch below, which didn't air in the TV broadcast of the program, but was posted online by NBC. (Warning: It contains some crude jokes.)
